    For those who defend this policy under the guise of 'national security' and 'patriotism' or 'supporting the troops' etc...

    If these aren't war crimes ..... What exactly ARE war crimes?

    In an interview Sunday on CNN, onetime gay conservative pundit Andrew Sullivan asserted that Bush officials who worked on a memo authorizing legal use of torture "should not leave the country" because they "will be, at some point, indicted for war crimes."

    During the post-World War II trials at Nuremberg, the United States led the world in decrying aggressive war as “the supreme international crime differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole.”

    Yet, Frontline and other mainstream US news outlets shy away from this central fact of the Iraq War: by invading Iraq without the approval of the UN Security Council and under false pretenses, the Bush administration released upon the Iraqi people “the accumulated evil of the whole” – and committed the “supreme” war crime.

    You've gotta love a guy who says "poo poo" and "wrought" in the same post.

    Wait, the YouTube clip there doesn't show anything, why would they be indicted? Who would do it, the AG's office? Why does what this guy thinks change anything? Maybe I missed the new news on this story that led him to say this.

    As a side note why is he described as "onetime gay conservative pundit?" Was he gay before but not now? Was he gay but only once? Was he conservative before but isn't now, but is still gay? That was confusing.

    edit: If it was an international court why would they pick the US to start, have they indicted people in the dozens of other countries that have torture interrogation programs that go much farther than the US program did?
