Bring them all to account

This space has repeatedly called for those who authorized and rationalized the United States' now-irrefutable torture program to be investigated and, if need be, brought to justice. And this should go across party lines.

Many apologists for the Bush administration's apparent willingness to torture prisoners have, this past week, cynically tried to turn the focus onto Rep. Nancy Pelosi, who was (the CIA says) informed about the "harsh interrogations."

Apparently, for some craven people, political affiliation is more important than the rule of law.

As if her political stripe would deter those who truly seek justice.

If Pelosi was aware of this most henious activity and did nothing to try and stop it, she should be held accountable as well. Any Democrat or Republican with a role in this sordid affair should be brought to account.
