I'm just trying to imagine the shockwave we would hear if the ABA and related State Bar Associations were to file diciplinary actions against the
attorneys who have advised and
empowered the Bush administration's attempts to undermine the U.S. Constitution and to ignore
The Geneva Convention.
Here's a handly link to the ABA's Center for Professional Responsibilty
listing each state and U.S, territory's displinary body.
If one were to file a complaint, they would do so through each attorney's licensing State Bar Association.
Given a choice between defending their own legal careers and defending Bush and Co.
I have a feeling we'd see a whole lotta shakin' going on.

v. to remove an attorney from the list of practicing attorneys for improper conduct. This penalty is usually invoked by the State Bar Association (if
so empowered) or the highest state court, and will automatically prohibit the attorney from practicing law before the courts in that state or from
giving advice for a fee to clients. The causes of permanent disbarment include conviction of a felony involving "moral turpitude," forgery, fraud, a
history of dishonesty, consistent lack of attention to clients, abandoning several clients, alcoholism or drug abuse which affect the attorney's
ability to practice, theft of funds, or any pattern of violation of the professional code of ethics. Singular incidents (other than felony conviction)
will generally result in reprimand, suspension and/or a requirement that the lawyer correct his/her conduct, show remorse and/or pass a test on legal
ethics. (See moral turpitude
