Watch Jonathan Turley on the Rachel Maddow Show:
"[Obama] should be saying, 'What you are describing is a crime.' And if he would allow an investigation to well-defined war crimes, Dick Cheney would not be making public statements. He would be surrounded by criminal defense counsel"
Turley: Cheney war crimes probe would be 'shortest in history'
"...Rachel, let's be honest here. It is just as bad to prevent the investigation and prosecution of a war crime as its commission because you become part of it.
"... You know, some people say, what do you need, a film? We actually had films of us torturing people. So this would be the shortest investigation in history. You have Bush officials who have said that we tortured people. We have interrogators who have said we tortured people. The Red Cross has said it. A host of international organizations have said it.
"What is President Obama waiting for? And I‘m afraid the answer is, a convenient moment."
For me and millions of other Americans, the "convenient moment" can't come soon enough.
