The Law for Everyone

This article points out that law enforcement is not supposed to be dictated by political convenience. The law is the law for everyone, or it is not justice.

Nick Mottern | On Prosecuting War Crimes
Nick Mottern, Truthout: "Barack Obama is not given the right by our Constitution to be the judge and jury for torturers. I include Bush and Cheney in this category although they committed other war crimes. Mr. Obama and our Congress took oaths to uphold the Constitution and the laws of the land. They must be reminded that they must do this job regardless of whether they think it is divisive or not. If President Obama and the Congress do their jobs of enforcing the law with respect to torture and other Bush and Cheney war crimes, they will begin unraveling the web of deceit that has supported the Iraq and Afghanistan wars."
