    From the very beginning of the war against terrorism, George W. Bush and his administration knew that the tactics and techniques they planned to use were illegal according to U.S. law. Rather than reject these tactics and techniques, they prepared a series of convoluted legal rationales that they hoped would protect them from prosecution. In recent weeks, in the wake of the Supreme Court ruling in Hamdan v. Rumsfeld, Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez and others have been formulating defenses against possible prosecutions for war crimes and are pressuring Republican members of Congress to pass new laws to protect them.

    Insufficient evidence that the individuals targeted may have been involved in the crimes alleged.


    Wrong. Military law does not provide for such a defense. Neither do the Geneva Conventions. And America Courts have found Rumsfeld's (and, therefore, Bush and Cheney's) arguments expanding the scope what is permissible to be invalid.

    The ONLY reason that these men are NOT in prison is because they are American
    with the full weight of American power behind them
    If they were ANYWHERE else their trials would be Over by now

    Why do you think they're all so relatively quiet right now?
    Because they are trying their damnedest to make sure they cover their tracks
