Cheney May Face Prosecution Under New Administration

 

Senator for Michigan Carl Levin has warned current US Vice President Dick Cheney that he may face prosecution under a new administration, following statements by Mr. Cheney which Levin claim amounts to the condoning of torture.

The vice president made statements earlier this week condoning the use of waterboarding as an interrogation technique, a technique widely used in terrorist cases under the current US administration.

A recently published internal report into the alleged abuses carried out under the outgoing administration in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, stated that abuses "cannot simply be attributed to the actions of "a few bad apples' acting on their own."

  As much as I would love to see...  
 
...Cheney and Bush punished for the incompetance, arrogance, the torture of non-charged suspects and the obvious illegal muder and mutilation of thousands of innocents I can't see it happening.
The US is far to corrupt to see justice at that level.

  just put him on the stand.  
 
I'm sure shocked citizens won't pass up an opportunity to pressure justice - no matter how corrupt the trial would be.

OJ trial will be nothing on this.

  If it did happen  
 
it would restore my faith in America and our Government. Since it won’t happen I have no use for this corrupt, fascist bunch of Nazis that are extorting ‘taxes’ from “We the People” and abusing civilizations across the globe. How can anyone be proud of a government that tortures helpless prisoners? I am disgusted and sickened by everything our government represents. Reprehensible criminals, not fit to judge anyone. Someone please overthrow these fascist and free us from these tyrants.

  Agreed with The Blob  
 
However, it won't happen. I'd love to see some jurisdiction (I believe Belgium has the ability) try these guys in absentia for the crime of waging an aggressive war (this is what Hitler's crew were convicted of, not crimes against humanity). This wouldn't result in anything more than some travel restrictions as these guys wouldn't be able to go to some places for fear of being arrested, but at least it would be some sort of public recognition of what they've done, and it would bring permanent tarnish to their legacy. This is important, as there has to be *something* to make the next guys who might try this to think twice.

Somebody has a warped sense of humour!

Cheney face "justice" in Washington or anywhere else on this planet?

When pigs fly!

And when I say fly, I mean when pigs pilot starships!

When the Bush took office, they removed the word justice from the dictionary.
