President Carter and Head of Coalition Forces in Iraq Both Open to Prosecuting Those Who Ordered Torture

After Downing Street notes:

General Ricardo Sanchez, the former top coalition commander in Iraq, called for a Truth Commission so we might fully understand the failure of the military and civilian command to honor the pledge of our constitution.

Sanchez . . .stressed that the outcome must embrace a variety of solutions, including prosecution.

Sanchez stated, “When the president made the declaration that the Geneva Conventions no longer apply, we unleashed the hounds of hell and eliminated all the foundations for the training, ethics and structure we had built into our soldiers and our leaders for how to conduct these kinds of operations.”

Sanchez stated many problems could be traced to loyalties to individuals and political parties.

Former President Jimmy Carter is also calling for a truth commission with the possibility of prosecution:

“[I] like to see is a complete examination of what did happen, the identification of any perpetrators of crimes against our own laws or against international law,” said Carter. “And then after all that’s done, decide whether or not there should be any prosecutions.”

  • Great blog, great posts. I am not sure if you had seen this:The Great Crash Not Over, Stocks Bear Market Rally Built on Sand money quote is: "The market rally and much of the earnings are simply fraud."

  • Any examination of the torture mess would have to have all witnesses under oath (no exceptions) then perhaps all the two sided stories would go away and the citizens would have to admit we did wrong. May as well throw in the lies that took us to war while were at it. Prosecution , you bet, the max.
