57. Actually, she's arguably far worse than the regime itself.
Simply stated, would you rather have some criminals in your town or a corrupt police force?

Even taking her at her word (which can be quite bizarre), her claim is that there's something more important than acting to stop ongoing torture.

Trouble is, the Geneva treaties also say that all gov't officials have a duty to report and act to stop ongoing torture. Failure to do so is a war crime in itself.

Currently Pelosi et. al. have the status of "Nuremberg defendants."

Their failure to impeach -- to object in the name of the American People for that which they never gave their proper consent -- render the US a War Criminal Nation, as opposed to just victims of a lawless, rogue regim.
