NY Times calls for torture prosecutions

Three cheers:

We can understand that Americans may be eager to put these dark chapters behind them, but it would be irresponsible for the nation and a new administration to ignore what has happened — and may still be happening in secret C.I.A. prisons that are not covered by the military’s current ban on activities like waterboarding.

A prosecutor should be appointed to consider criminal charges against top officials at the Pentagon and others involved in planning the abuse.

I nominate Patrick Fitzgerald. I wouldn't want to tangle with that guy in court, ever.

Via Sullivan.
