Spain gets rough with Bush officials

Spanish prosecutors are set to push ahead with their criminal investigation into several high-ranking Bush administration officials for being complicit in the torture of five Spanish nationals at Guantánamo bay. The soon-to-be-defendants include former U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales and Vice President Cheney’s former chief of staff David Addington as well as former Undersecretary of Defense Douglas J. Feith.

A key interesting detail is that Spanish prosecutors apparently advised the Americans that they would suspend their investigation if at any point the United States were to undertake an investigation of its own into the matter. Queries on whether any such investigation was pending were apparently met with a long silence from the U.S. side. Anyway, fairly shortly, if the above fuckers set foot on Spanish soil they’ll be arrested and face trial.

Sí, se puede.
