I have read and heard that international crimes charges are unlikely to reach Bush, Cheney or Rumsfeld, but are likely to be brought against their legal advisers. I believe this should be the path taken within the United States as well. Further, I believe the process is best begun by Congress. Mr. Obama is wise to keep back his public advocacy of prosecution and would be wise to order full cooperation with Congress, and any foreign judiciaries.
In that manner, the full extent of criminal activity will unfold with less overheated and divisive rhetoric from the right, and is more likely to result in a firm case for prosecution, which will eventually reach the highest levels of this detestable cabal of malefactors.
