Will They Or Won't They?

I'm encouraged by those who are seriously looking at the Bush administration's role in advocating torture.
"George W Bush has confessed to ordering waterboarding, which in the view of almost all experts clearly passes the severe pain threshold in the definition of torture in international law," Robertson said. "[H]e is an ex-head of state so he is not entitled to immunity from arrest and trial."
While I don't think that Bush and his cronies would ever be prosecuted for war crimes, having this little dark cloud hanging over his head will hopefully dispel any myth that he was an honorable and courageous president.

He tells himself that history will decide what effect he had in the world during his eight-year reign.  Unfortunately there's too much proof of him acting less than wisely.
