Now the American government's President George Bush and his Vice President Richard Cheney justify their authorized acts of torture against individuals only George Bush could identify as combatants and terrorists as being within the law--made so in a series of memorandums written at the request of Bush and Cheney cronies.
Criminal acts are criminal acts and war crimes are war crimes. Political leaders are supposed to have the good sense to say No! when the urge to act against the law arises. Failure to exercise good judgment and act humanely cannot fail to be punished otherwise those who allow and commit acts of genocide, ethnocide, torture, and murder join in a great conspiracy that degrades the human spirit. Representatives in the United States Congress are now discussing ways to investigate and indict those who committed crimes during the eight years of George Bush's government must be encouraged. Citizens of 145 other countries in the world that signed anti-torture agreements must be vigilant to seek out those who successfully illude trials in the United States.
I only wish that such actions had been taken against those who committed crimes against Indian peoples all over the Americas.
