Cheney de Sade

Yesterday's WaPo editorial - Vice President for Torture:
It's not surprising that Mr. Cheney would be at the forefront of an attempt to ratify and legalize this shameful record. The vice president has been a prime mover behind the Bush administration's decision to violate the Geneva Conventions and the U.N. Convention Against Torture and to break with decades of past practice by the U.S. military.
Shameful indeed. There are some low-level grunts serving time in Leavenworth for the abuses they committed. Yet, the top-level administration figures, such as Cheney and Rummy, who authorized and encouraged the illegal behavior are still running the country. They are the real criminals. They are the war criminals.
