1. I'm not sure where this is going

but a legal precedent for prosecution sounds good to me.

3. It would have to be on front page of NYT, WaPo, and L.A. Times for a solid week...

..to get anyone's attention, or get traction. Then we would need to pray it goes somewhere.

6. This is where the president and I differ

on the definition of a "good man." A "good man" in my thinking is the type of man depicted in this video.

5. Everyone knows the U.N. is an 'enemy' of the U.S.

 

this will be easily dismissed by our responsible MSM.

7. Um, this is Iran's state propaganda outlet.

 

Their spin on what the UN is 'demanding' is not exactly accurate.

11. Maybe this is better

U.N. investigator urges U.S. to pursue Bush-era abuses:


A United Nations investigator called on the United States on Monday to publish its findings on the CIA's Bush-era program of rendition and secret detention of terrorism suspects.

Ben Emmerson, U.N. special rapporteur on the promotion and protection of human rights while countering terrorism, voiced concern that while President Barack Obama's administration has rejected Central Intelligence Agency practices conducted under his predecessor George W. Bush, there have been no prosecutions.

"Despite this clear repudiation of the unlawful actions carried out by the Bush-era CIA, many of the facts remain classified, and no public official has so far been brought to justice in the United States," Emmerson said in a report to the U.N. Human Rights Council, which he will address on Tuesday.

Emmerson, an international lawyer from Britain, has served since August 2011 in the independent post set up
the U.N. Human Rights Council in 2005 to probe human rights violations committed during counter-terrorism operations worldwide.

12. This encourages hope.

Unless those responsible are charged everything we stand for is a lie.
Now I fully understand why Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize
so prematurely. I believe it was a symbol of hope that he would find the
strength to do the right thing and steer the world towards peace. His desire
to be in the "special club" is too strong. Besides, he has a family to look
out for. Neocon bastards are capable of anything and they never go away.
