    who were watching the torture who ordered the tapes burned. The guy on TV doesn't count because he had immunity via the MCA, but the seniors (who are probably still allowing torture) do not.  Plus they did not give the tapes to the 9/11 commission, or to anyone else like the judges who asked for them as recently as a month ago (obstuction of justice).

    •  Are you really (0+ / 0-)

      allowed to claim immunity under a law that is probably illegal because it was passed to try to hide other war crimes?  Isn't that a war crime itself?

      •  Exactly. (0+ / 0-)

        Unfortunately the Supreme Court is a long way away from this one, and like telcom amnesty, no one at DOJ is going to prosecute crimes done in the 'fog of war'.  Perish the thought, but only our enemies would actually do anything about  the war crimes.
