Could this really be? Bush and co being subpoenaed for arrest.

spanish-high-courtIs it a sign of the times that the lofty set are now being forced to be accountable?

It seems something is finally been done to bring accountability to the unchecked “Bush Doctrine” which saw international law, treaties and codes of civility broken, beaten and skirted like a red heeled hooker carrying syphilis.

Over in Spain, that part of Europe that still complies with international law (despite its own history of non compliance) is set to pursue an investigation of Bush underlings in the past administrations handling of Guatanamo detainees. Five of them being Spanish.

Who should watch out include- former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, former Justice Dept. lawyer John Yoo, and former Undersecretary of Defense Douglas Feith. Presiding over the case will be Baltasar Garzon (famous for issuing an outstanding order for the arrest of Chilean tyrant Augusto Pinochet).

Legal experts note, however, that even if Judge Garzon issues the warrant, it would likely end up being purely symbolic, as the alleged criminals would merely have to remain in the US to avoid arrest.

Needless to say Scallywag is quite thrilled that this portends some degree of civility and an end to the capricious behavior we have seen going on too much of late. Let’s hope this inspires some lawmakers in the States to take the next step. It’s up to us guys, let’s lobby them!

  1. You silly…!
    I can just see Dick Cheney smirking and sneering while the prosecution presents him with thousand pairs of murderous gloves to try to put on for proof of fit, just like OJ!

    Dear Scally.., the sentiment is unanimous, but the day of reckoning for these people is not of this world…They’re on a one way ticket to Dante’s Inferno! That you can believe in!
