16. That would just get bush co off the hook
JMO but I think herr bush and dumsfeld would embrace your solution.

I think the individuals that carried out the torture are weak, miserable failures as human beings because they should have had some backbone... but as far as I am concerned they were just following orders.

bush and company would love nothing more than to lay the whole thing in the laps of the misguided fools that did their dirty work.

If you ask me they should be given an opportunity to "cut a deal" in exchange for telling the truth and testifying against bush and cohorts (just like the hit men in the mob are allowed to "cut deals") then they should be given the equivalent of a witness protection program.

Bringing the scum at the top to justice would be far more equitable in the "Arab street's" eyes IMO
