Ronald Reagan says US must prosecute Bush for war crimes

Well, he and his crew have to be investigated first, but since they've all but admitted to torturing detainees, the US is legally bound to prosecute them. For the record, I'm giving Obama the pass on this one, because the executive doesn't do this kind of work to begin with. War crimes prosecution is between the DOJ and Congress. Of course, Obama could hamstring the DOJ if he wanted to, but that would be kind of dumb.

Sorry, Republiscums, but a law passed during the rule of the almighty Reagan says the US government is bound by law to prosecute torturers. Now, I'm sure there are plenty of other scum-sucking, pus-filled, corpulent, walking demons like John Yoo and David Addington that could shit and vomit all manner of legalese to refute this premise, but the underlying premise that cannot be refuted is that these vermin - Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Yoo, Addington, Gonzalez, et al, are all morally vacuous. To even defend themselves and their reasons for approving and advocating torture is enough to warrant conviction (and hanging, given that is what is done to war criminals).

Waterboarding is torture. Torture is a war crime. Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Yoo, Addington, Gonzalez, and their crew have admitted to authorizing, attempting to have authorized, or have advocated for waterboarding and other "harsh interogation techniques", also known as "torture". Therefore, Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Yoo, Addington, Gonzalez, and their crew are war criminals.

Lawyer up, fuckers.
