      Accessory after the fact:

      U.S.C. 18 et seq:
      Whoever, knowing that an offense has been committed, receives, relieves, comforts or assists the offender in order to hinder or prevent his apprehension, trial or punishment, is an accessory after the fact; one who knowing a felony to have been committed by another, receives, relieves, comforts, or assists the felon in order to hinder the felon's apprehension, trial, or punishment.

      Arguably, and I admit it's arguable, refusing to prosecute PUBLICLY ADMITTED felonies, e.g., certainly hinders the trial and punishment of Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld.  It depends upon the motivation . . . and when you have an AG who cheerfully defends Chiquita Banana for their admitted hiring of right-wing death squads to assassinate labor organizers in Central America, I believe that establishes a, shall we say, track record for the execrable Mr. Holder.

      The Convention Against Torture requires prosecution. Failure to do so is a violation of law!
      Pay particular attention to articles 4,6,12 and 13.

      Keep Christian mythology out of science class!
