I’ve been hoping/waiting for this to happen. Harper’s magazine reports that Spain is going after the architects of U.S. torture: John Yoo, William J. Haynes II, David Addington, Alberto Gonzales, Jay Bybee, and Doug Feith.
The Spanish criminal court now may seek the arrest of any of the targets if they travel to Spain or any of the 24 nations that participate in the European extraditions convention it would have to follow a more formal extradition process in other countries beyond the 24. The Bush lawyers will therefore run a serious risk of being apprehended if they travel outside of the United States.
Now if they’ll only add Rumsfeld, Cheney, and Bush.
