Prosecute Bush for Torture

Bush admitted that he ordered torture. The law is clear. But there will be no justice aside from a few countries where the torturers won't go. That's it. Travel restrictions on Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld. Even if charges are brought against them elsewhere, they will still lead their rich, free lives. This is just more proof that the law does not apply to the elites. Torture away, world leaders. There will be no consequences.

in reference to:

"Torture is a crime that no circumstance -- even national security -- can ever justify. It cannot be redefined to make acts that have long been illegal suddenly permissible. The memos Bush relies on as a defense are no defense at all: as was found by the American prosecutor in Nuremberg, providing legal advice that justifies and leads to war crimes or torture is criminal. And it cannot protect from prosecution."
