Don't Forget Prosecution Of The Others, Too

From a New York Times editorial on the nauseating "journey into depravity" that is the torture memos, and the need to impeach Jay Bybee, their author and still, somehow, a judge.

"These memos make it clear that Mr. Bybee is unfit for a job that
requires legal judgment and a respect for the Constitution. Congress
should impeach him. And if the administration will not conduct a
thorough investigation of these issues, then Congress has a
constitutional duty to hold the executive branch accountable. If that
means putting Donald Rumsfeld and Alberto Gonzales on the stand, even
Dick Cheney, we are sure Americans can handle it."
