Obama Killed Bush Torture Probe
 by David Corn


In his first months in office, Obama sought to protect the Bush bastards facing criminal investigation overseas
for their involvement in establishing policies the that governed interrogations of detained terrorist suspects.
A "confidential" April 17, 2009, cable sent from the US embassy in Madrid to the State Department - one of
the 251,287 cables obtained by WikiLeaks - details how Obama, working with Republicans, leaned on Spain
to derail this potential prosecution.
The previous month, a Spanish human rights group called the Association for the Dignity of Spanish Prisoners
had requested that Spain's National Court indict six Bush bastards for, as the cable describes it, "creating a legal
framework that allegedly permitted torture." The six were Alberto Gonzales; David Addington, William Haynes,
Douglas Feith, Jay Bybee and John Yoo. The human rights group contended that Spain had a duty to open an
investigation under the nation's "universal jurisdiction" law, which permits its legal system to prosecute overseas
human rights crimes involving Spanish citizens and residents. Five Gitmo detainees fit that criteria.

So, congrats to Obama for finding something on which the GOP would work with him.
