The International Criminal Court at the Hague has filed complaints against “the Accused” – Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Tenet, Rice, and Gonzales for their practice of ‘extraordinary rendition’ which led to the torture of about 100 people.
Is this a move to undermine the authority and sovereignty of the US government? Or is it a legal exercise honestly meant to hold accountable our homegrown war criminals?

Would a majority of Americans like to see the lot of them in the dock? This particular one certainly would.
