Bearing the Wounds of War

The youngest victims of the Wars we adults wage, especially our Wars of Choice!

As a Country cheers on the 'Shock and Awe' of Waging War on others, those others having done nothing to warrent our Invasion and Occupations, that same Country does little in Sacrifice!

War Crimes: Senior Level Administration Officials Discuss Torture -- "The Principals"

Via YouTube, a video of the ABC News Investigation piece called "The Principals" -- the results of a five-month investigation into the involvement of principal members of the National Security Council and their roles in discussions about what "enhanced interrogation techniques" to use when interrogating alleged high-value Al Qaeda prisoners.

Hat-tip to Red no more of DailyKos who diaried about this, and to SmileySam for providing a link to the video.

Members of the Security Council who discussed and approved these techniques included Vice President Cheney, Condoleeza Rice, George Tenet, Colin Powell, Donald Rumsfeld and John Ashcroft.

And is there a chance we may finally push for -- and possibly achieve -- action resulting in accountability for these heinous crimes and ongoing abuses of power by Administration officials...?
