Rachel, let’s be honest here.  It is just as bad to prevent the investigation and a prosecution of a war crime as its commission because you become part of it….We actually have films of us torturing people…We have Bush officials that have said we have tortured people.  We have interrogators who have said we have tortured people.  The Red Cross has said it.  A host of international organizations have said it.  What is President Obama waiting for?  And I’m afraid the answer is a convenient moment…”

“That’s a perfectly horrible reason not to follow principle.”

“This is the most well-defined and pubicly know crime I’ve seen in my lifetime.”  –Jonathan Turley, Constitutional Law Professor

Turley is so on it.  All of the elements of the case against the Bush administration are just out there floating around and waiting for someone at the Department of Justice with a conscience to put the pieces together.
