It's about indicting Dick Cheney for torture.....and isn't that something billions of People want to see?

DICK CHENEY'S EXTRAORDINARY VACATION

Remember when the former VP was always in some secret, undisclosed location? This is a bona fide offer to send Dick Cheney on vacation trip to sunny Spain.

GET THE LAST WAR CRIME PROMO DVD!

We just got back from Cannes in France where we premiered The Last War Crime movie at Marche Du Film. And while we are working on putting together a distribution deal, you can have one of the promo DVDs we prepared especially for the occasion, with the date and location of the premiere printed on it making it a real collector's item.

This is a multimedia DVD that includes 1) the trailer, 2) a slide show of production stills backed by parts of the music score (with real strings) and the first half of the closing argument to the grand jury, and 3) the closing credits theme song, "It's A Crime".

1. June is 'Stop Torture Month'. Thanks for the OP. Dick Cheney and a few others

along with him, all need to be held accountable, Rumsfeld who sat in on a torture session eg, with the lawyers who cynically twisted the law to try to make torture legal.

I know people, even Dems now sadly, think that this issue will go away, but it won't. There are far too many victims, just as happened in South America, and although it took decades, some of the war criminals in that part of the world, are finally being brought to justice.

It's a stain on this country that nothing was done about this massive war crime, and the reason why we no longer can preach to the world's dictators, or other nations, about human rights abuses without hearing back from them about our own. So, not only was it a war crime, it underminded this country's moral authority and weakened it around the world.

Thank you for the OP. Wouldn't it be wonderful if issues like this still got hundreds of comments on DU?

5. I wish Cheney would open a MMJ dispensary

Obama's DoJ would be all over that, like flies on shit. This? Ghost Busters would do more.

3. Send him to Spain? Just send him to Milwaukee. Barrett says that his police arrests felons.

4. War criminals generally are not arrested by the local police.

It is Congress' job to hold Impeachment hearings to look at the evidence when serious crimes are committed by elected officials. Congress failed to do that.

Now it would be appropriate for the DOJ to start an investigation into the many allegations of torture from actual victims. But so far that too has not happened, nor is it likely.

So, since victims never give up seeking justice, some, after being denied the right to even civilly sue in this country, have taken their cases to other legal entities who have jurisdiction, Spain being one of them, seeking justice. Bush himself, nor Cheney however are not named in those indictments, yet.

Sometimes it takes time to bring powerful people to justice, but it happens more often than people think.

12. True, but if they were, it would not be the job of the local police, unless they received

an order from a higher power to detain someone. If it was Dick Cheney, well, after he shot his friend in the face, he ordered the local police not to come to the house, I guess until he rearranged the evidence, so it would have to be done by the Feds I think. Although I'm sure he would try to order them around also.
