SIX of the Bush gang are under special consideration for indictment by Baltasar Garzón, the Spanish investigative judge who ordered the arrest of Augusto Pinochet. It is said that it is “highly probable” that the case will go forward and arrest warrants will be issued. The charges will be for torture and mistreatmant of prisoners at Guantanamo Bay under the Geneva Conventions. ALBERTO GONZALES, JOHN YOO, DOUGLAS FEITH are the names we see in the paper. Of course the US is expected to ignore calls for extradition. And it may be difficult for evidence to be compiled. But isn’t it possible that the evidence is in mountains and there for the asking? And, tried in absentia, these party animals could find themselves prisoners forever in the US. And maybe have enough leftover hubris to travel and wind up cooling their heels in some foreign hoosegow? One never knows, does one.
