We Used To Execute People For Waterboarding ! [Dick Cheney Admits Involvement in Authorising Torture]


(10:58)

The crimes are obvious and there is documentation to back the charges. Apart from the torture war crime the video here brings up the illegal nature of the Iraq War, that it was undertaken under false pretenses and that there was no threat posed by Iraq. The architects of these crimes are clearly unindicted war criminals.

What's more, the Democrats, who had every opportunity to launch impeachment proceedings with regard to these very serious breaches, did nothing. This is why the US Congress has been recording single digit approval ratings (and add the fact that the domestic economy has been far from robust for many years).

The status quo must be challenged for if there is no outcry, if no one spreads information so that good, honest and courageous people in authority are encouraged to act then we can only expect more of the same or worse. Certainly things will not get much better in the new Administration with more establishment cronies and cover-up artists joining the ranks.
