Spanish indictment for the 'Bush 6'

Chill the Champagne - The Bush Six to Be Indicted

By Scott Horton

Spanish prosecutors will seek criminal charges against Alberto Gonzales and five high-ranking Bush administration officials for sanctioning torture at Guantanamo.


He said 'The Bush Six'! Sounds a little like a six-pack of malt beverage but a lot more sour - and champagne may be premature.

Actually I grumped about this indictment on April 7, a week ago, and look forward to results from abroad even as I suspect that an indictment way off in Spain may be merely a way to placate those who believe the Bush regime was a criminal enterprise authorizing torture (along the lines of Saddam's much-reviled 'torture chambers'), and that ultimately no justice will be served from Spain's efforts, noble though they may be.

Hope I'm wrong about that. The weasels.
