Bigfoot Bush Justice Department Shoots Self In Own Foot.

By now everyone know that somebody in Spain is inditing some Bush Justice Department lawyers as war criminals.
How can they do that we shout? Why don't they mind there own business we chortle. What possible business is it of Spain's anyhow?

The joke is own Bush and his own Justice Department. They set it up themselves. Yep, they freely gave the Spanish the very case that is being bought against them:

"The six defendants—in addition to Gonzales, Federal Appeals Court Judge and former Assistant Attorney General Jay Bybee, University of California law professor and former Deputy Assistant Attorney General John Yoo, former Defense Department general counsel and current Chevron lawyer William J. Haynes II, Vice President Cheney’s former chief of staff David Addington, and former Undersecretary of Defense Douglas J. Feith—are accused of having given the green light to the torture and mistreatment of prisoners held in U.S. detention in “the war on terror.”" The case arises in the context of a pending proceeding before the court involving terrorism charges against five Spaniards formerly held at Guantánamo. A group of human-rights lawyers originally filed a criminal complaint asking the court to look at the possibility of charges against the six American lawyers. Baltasar Garzón Real, the investigating judge, accepted the complaint and referred it to Spanish prosecutors for a view as to whether they would accept the case and press it forward. “The evidence provided was more than sufficient to justify a more comprehensive investigation,” one of the lawyers associated with the prosecution ."


Holy mackerel and Friday fish fry!
You mean we sent to Spain people to be convicted of crimes that we had held and tortured in Guantanamo? Yep. Say it isn't so George!

Again: "The case arises in the context of a pending proceeding before the court involving terrorism charges against five Spaniards formerly held at Guantanamo."

Good Grief, doesn't this remind you of one of those dumb criminal clips from TV?

Heading toward Karma, but they need to add the possibility of "extraordinary rendition" to Iran or North Korea, and make sure there's an interpol warant out enforceable throughout the EU.

I would at least not vacation outside of the U.S. for a while if I were them.

Several folks I know have traveled to Europe. They wear sweatshirts that say 'Canada'. Got to earn the respect of our overseas friends. We need send one to Gonzales.....

When I was wandering around Lebanon many decades ago when asked where I was from, I always answered, Oklahoma. When asked where that was, I said North of Texas. Everybody thought they knew where Texas was.
