3. Prosecution for those who ordered this treatment is essential for returning our Constitutional
Rights.

The President knows he is in the cross hairs for conspirisy to commit torture for ordering this treatment. As are many in his administration. This is why the "want to be" Atty. Gen. will NOT admit that water boarding is torture. The people who carried out the orders must be held accountable so that they will testify against those above them in the chain of command.

How could this even be a question? Must we clarify that burning a child with a hot iron is child abuse? Is it not clear that it is so? By definition? By past prosecutions? By common sense? Must we outline and define every single outrageous thing one cannot do to another person while they are in the custody of the state, in the custody of our civil SERVANTS?

The argument strains credibility even in this day and under this administration.

And that my friends, is saying something.
