For an excellent background peace on this, see “The Bush Six” in the April 13, New Yorker, Jane Mayer’s discussion of Queen’s Council Phillipe Sands, author of the book, Torture Team and Baltazar Garzón who, in 1998, issued an international warrant for the arrest of Chilean president Augusto Pinochet regarding his responsibility for the deaths and torture of Spanish citizens.

The big question facing all Americans, and particularly Republicans, is whether we have the courage as a nation to face what we have done and set it right. Listening to Limbaugh, George F. Will,  William Kristol, Glenn Beck and other influential Rebublicans, it is very clear their moral bearings have been irreversibly lost.

What we must have now is an unambiguous and forceful signal from President Obama and Democrats of every stripe that we are not going to simply stand by in obtuse, silent denial and watch other nations do what we know is our moral responsibility.

Somehow, Americans must find the courage and the will to prosecute the crimes of the Bush Administration and we must do it now.
