Mukasey vs Cheney

More

The nominee for attorney-general is an American. Which means that, in the core of his being, he opposes torture - and holds that the president has no right whatever to over-rule the laws against torture, as he has done. Mukasey even understands that what Bush has done can be understood within the context of the horrors of the Holocaust, of what Americans fought a long and good war to oppose and prevent. This is an extremely heartening development: that the new attorney-general may finally resist and roll back the putsch against the constitution and the rule of law perpetrated by this president, vice-president and their apparatchiks. Know hope. American can come back. We can win this war, without surrendering to the barbarism innovated by Dick Cheney and George W. Bush.
