It's been serious for some time. Senator Leahy has encouraged a Truth and Reconciliation commission to find out what happened. I support this. I don't support criminal investigations unless there is some evidence made available that might show criminal culpability.
However, in the international community, not everybody shares that opinion. One nation that doesn't agree with my assessment is Spain, who according to this article on The Moderate Voice is opening a criminal investigation into some Bush Administration officials.
We've made a fine mess for ourselves.
I highly recommend reading the article linked above. I'll look at giving a better synopsis later, but we have company over, and I would like to entertain.
