But all of these are just small pieces in the very large puzzle of a massive White House orchestrated sanctioning of War Crimes, including rape and murder.

It is not unexpected that the corporate mainstream media would attempt to minimize the criminal behavior of the Bush Administration, because D.C. insiders -- the villagers -- and the corporate oligarchy protects its own.


But I am a bit mystified why the progressive blogs and most liberal and civil liberties websites are more caught up with fingering the authors of the memos than the masterminds of the War Crimes policies: Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and Rice (not to mention Wolfowitz, Feith, etc.).


As has been pointed out by others, after WW II some Japanese tried for War Crimes were hanged for waterboarding allied prisoners.


The torture unto death, rape, sexual violations, and abuse that violated the Geneva Conventions was rampant in the Bush Gulag.


The most pressing issue of justice is not who wrote the enabling torture (murder and rape) memos -- although the attorneys should be held accountable -- but who should be tried for inititiating and promoting War Crimes.


Murder is not something to split hairs about on Sunday morning talk shows.


It belongs in a courtroom so that justice is rendered, the perpertrators jailed, and the Constitution preserved.
