Garzon Moves

Undeterred by the Spanish government's overture to Obama, the inevitable international attempt to hold the United States to account for gross violation of the Geneva Conventions and the UN Convention on Torture begins in earnest:

Baltasar Garzon's move on Wednesday is separate from a complaint by human rights lawyers that seeks charges against six specific Bush administration officials.

There are no statutes of limitations on the war crime of torture.
