In 2003 some 72% of Americans fully supported the Abandoning of the Missions and those Sent to Accomplish so extremely Quickly after 9/11!!

At least some 95%, if not more as less then 1% serve them, not only still support the, just below, total lack of Sacrifice, they ran from any and all Accountability and left everything still on the table to be continually used if the political/military want was still in play in future executive/legislative wants!!

"Bush Six": Spain Stops Gitmo Investigation! U.S. to Pursue{?}

Spain court turns over Guantanamo torture investigation to US

April 13, 2011 - Spanish Judge Eloy Velasco announced Wednesday that the National Court would not investigate six Bush administration officials pursuant to torture claims from Guantanamo Bay [JURIST news archive], in response to a letter [text, PDF] from the US Department of Justice (DOJ) [official website]. The letter assured Spain that the US is investigating the treatment of detainees and has already completed federal criminal prosecution for the detainee mistreatment. The DOJ urged Spanish courts to refer complaints of detainee mistreatment to the US for the investigation and prosecution of perpetrators. Velasco subsequently agreed to discard three lawsuits filed by former inmates who claimed to be Spanish citizens. The Obama administration told the Spanish court that the US would not investigate any of the six former Bush administration officials for allowing the torture of detainees in US custody. In response to the DOJ's letter, the Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) and European Center for Constitutional and Human Rights (ECCHR) [advocacy websites] issued a rebuttal [text, PDF], supporting Spain's pending criminal complaint against six US officials for alleged involvement in detainee abuse and inhumane treatment. The rebuttal stated:

The U.S. Submission does nothing to alter the conclusion that the criminal case against the so-called "Bush Six"; is properly before the Spanish court: it demonstrates that no competent jurisdiction is investigating or prosecuting the allegations in the complaint. The listed initiatives undertaken by the US government in various fora, while indicating some small measure of concern with the "mistreatment" or "abuse" of detainees and the legal advice provided in relation to the treatment of detainees, are ultimately unresponsive and inapplicable to the allegations raised in the complaint pending in Spain.

Velasco agreed to hand over the case to US courts [Dow Jones report] and pledged to submit information on the lawsuit to US authorities who will investigate the cases and decide which ones to pursue. {continued}
