There is an interesting article from the BBC detailing allegations from Col. Lawrence Wilkerson that Dick Cheney pushed the abuse of terror suspects as part of the ongoing War on Terror. A more interesting comment from Col. Wilkerson is that Cheney’s actions might be both a domestic crime and an international crime. Although there has been plenty of claims that the Bush administration should be held accountable for their actions in Iraq, the accusations of prisoner abuse and the “secret” prisons provides an interesting new angle. It is also worthy to note that Col. Lawrence, until this past Spring, served in the Bush State Department.
