Indict Bush. Indict them all.

He has no credibility at all. He should be tried and punished for this. Sometime in the future, when the fall of the right is complete, it may happen.

They hauled Clinton through the coals for fudging the truth over a bit of fellatio. Bush has wilfully breached the Geneva Conventions.

More at Larvatus, Cristy's Pea Pod, Fat Cat Politics, The Poor Man, (to be expanded...). Conservatives grappling with the decision: Belmont Club, (to be expanded, when the others regain consciousness...).

He cannot claim ignorance- how many thousands of high-level lawyers have told him that he's breaking the law? You wilfully ignore them, wandering off to the farm while your unethical spin doctors masquerading as public lawyers draft documents designed to mislead the public and confuse what was always a clear cut issue.

Those lawyers should be disbarred, and worse. They are frauds. They have done an incredible amount of damage to the law, and the legal profession has an obligation to hunt them down and crush them.

Rear Admiral Harris and other wilful participants in this process must be held to account as well. All decent folk who believe in our civilisation and it's central pillar the Rule of Law have an obligation to make sure that these thugs, these lawbreakers, can never sleep.

Winners:

Major Michael Mori- now a byword for integrity and the lead advocate who beat the most powerful law-breakers in the World.

The Rule of Law, and it's potential to restrain the Executive from barbarism.

The US Justice system. Often maligned, this decision by a conservative Supreme Court will attract credibility and respect for its highest institution.

The USA. How many countries' top courts would have handed down this decision? Their Government may be run by liars who are in the pocket of select vested interests, but they still have the rule of law.

The War on Terror. This illegal lockup has been a shining example of why 'we' are the enemy of Islam, a recruiter's dream. It's over, and no matter how poor the reporting in the Islamic world there must be a few people in Egypt and Saudi Arabia asking themselves whether their own justice system could have produced this result.

The Left. We were right. Yet again. And we know that history will be on our side.

The Truth. It prevailed.

Losers:

George W. Bush, international lawbreaker. Marked man. Future Defendant. Failure. Person history will recognise as a consummate, incompetent fuckup.

Every lawyer who put their imprimatur on this regime.

Every military officer who enforced this regime and who is of sufficiently high rank to be held responsible.

Just about every right wing commentator in the Western world.

The American Republican Party, the Australian Liberal Party.

John Howard, though like all his biggest crises of integrity it won't stop him sleeping at night.

The neocons. That's the squeaking sound of a nail being driven into a coffin.

The Right. A collective failure of morality, legality, and intelligence.

Now, for the next course, extraordinary rendition....

Don't crow too soon. As much as I would love to celebrate the closing down of the immoral facility at Guantanamo Bay, all that the Supreme Court ruled was that the commissions themselves are illegal, they did not consider the long term detention without trial or charge of the people at G'Bay itself an illegal act.

Yes, they must be crushed. They all must be destroyed. It is fun using this kind of language - it releases all the pent up frustrations.

And when will the Law Society revoke John Howard's registration - didn't he have to make some kind of undertaking to uphold the Law (and not just the bits he likes)

They did, two years earlier in Rasul v. Bush. You can read a syllabus of the decision here:http://www.law.cornell.edu/supct/search/display.html?terms=Bush&url=/supct/html/03-334.ZS.html

Cristy, thanks for point that out to me. I unabashedly apologise.

In October 2002, when the Iraq War Resolution, Democrats controlled the Senate. They could have stopped it, but they didn't. So when you say "indict them all" you should also be referring to John Kerry, Tom Daschle, Max Cleland, Hillary Clinton, etc. All of them voted for this morass. Every single person who voted for the Iraq War Resolution is complicit in the war, not just Bush.
