Inside the Mind of an American War Criminal

According to this note in The New York Times the unlamented Don Rumsfeld will be penning his memoirs. What a treat. Maybe we'll gain some insight into how it felt to sit around with Condi and Colin and Dick and George and John deciding how the CIA should torture this or that 'detainee.' What is pathetic is that ABC can't call the practices what they are torture - not 'harsh interrogation techniques.' And why was information about al-Queda 'scarce?" Because BushCo fell down on the job pre-September 11th.

There is a useful essay at Alternet connecting this story with the recent one on recently released torture opinions by John Yoo. A quick Google search suggests that to date the mainstream media have ignored the ABC story completely.

The Alternet post raises the issue of Bush's legal culpability and the possibilty Yoo is being set up as a scapegoat.

If Bush argues for the right to dismiss subpoena of his minions on the basis of an imperial and monlithic executive then this same rationale agrues for Bush culpability of any and all acts by his minions. The legal knife cuts both ways.

Even if America chooses to dismiss or ignore these issues the rest of the world is taking notice. This is the reason we have a World Court - to permit action against states that harbour criminals.
