Keep on pushing

MoveOn has a new video. Worth watching; only 35 seconds.



I find it a little tame. The investigation we need is almost certainly a prelude to prosecution for internationally recognized war crimes. The former Vice-President seems bent on self-incrimination through claiming torture "worked." Since the chief thing we know of that torture produced was a completely false assertion used by the Bush administration to justify its war from Ibn al-Shaykh al-Libi that Saddam Hussein was training al-Qaeda in Iraq, this seems both absurd -- and simply vicious.

But what's really interesting here is that MoveOn is guessing that the bone is worth continued gnawing. It is. Prosecutions for war crimes don't come easy or fast, but determined people make civilization by continuing to demand them.

If there is any justice on this earth those who were guilty of this crime (and others) will be prosecuted and suffer accountability for their inhumane actions.
