22. No matter how specific they are, Bush will claim that he doesn't have to follow their law
The Military Commissions Act "expressly outlaws torture and cruel or inhuman treatment" according to The Center for Victims of Torture:

I agree that they should stand trial for their crimes. However, it's even more important that they be removed from office, because they are a grave threat to our country and our world. We won't be able to do that after January 2008, assuming that they go quietly after the election. Gerald Ford's pardon of Nixon was very unpopular and contributed to his defeat in 1976. I think that whoever replaced Bush and Cheney would be very hesitant to offer them a blanket pardon.
