Judge OKs probe of torture complaint against Bush officials


edition.cnn.com

A senior Spanish judge has ordered prosecutors to investigate whether key Bush aides should be charged with crimes over the Guantanamo Bay detention center, a lawyer said Sunday.

Investigating magistrate Baltasar Garzon has passed a 98-page complaint to prosecutors that accuses former Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales and five others of being the legal architects of system that allowed torture in violation of international law, human rights lawyer Gonzalo Boye told CNN.

The judge has investigated human rights abuses in former military governments in Chile and Argentina, Islamic terrorists operating in Spain, the armed Basque separatist group ETA, as well as major drug traffickers


Well maybe this one will help set a precedent for the prosecution of people involved in these scandals.

It's about time another country actually stepped up and attempted to make some ground on this subject. We can expect the US to turn a blind eye to one their own, but I don't think the whole world will be rallying behind them.

George's clowns might have to start counting their days soon, well hopefully soon.

Let's probe the Clinton criminals in the Obama administration too. I'm not making this as a partisan statement but it seems that the new world order has Obama on an agenda to continue a lot of the policies of Bush and we can only stop them if we get rid of the people responsible for that.
