zero tolerance for conspiracy and torture

In a NY Times editorial dated January 2nd, 2008, Thomas H. Kean and Lee H. Hamilton, who served as chairman and vice chairman, respectively, of the 9/11 commission, call the actions of the C.I.A. Director as well as those of White House counsels with regards to the commission's request for all evidence related to their lawful legal investigation - OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE, just as Warrior Ant Press suggested in several December, 2007 posts (see links below). The 9-11 Commission, technically known as the National Commission on Terrorist Acts Upon the United States, was an independent, bipartisan commission created by Congress and signed into law by President Bush in September 2002. Then C.I.A. Director George Tenet, then Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, as well as C.I.A. and White House counsels, including such luminaries as Harriet Myers and Alberto Gonzales, ignored repeated requests for evidence from the commission and also lied about knowledge of such evidence. These were felony crimes.

Where 2 or more parties come together in the name of obstruction, it is also known as conspiracy to commit obstruction of justice. Also a felony crime. It's time for folks on the hill to step up to the convictions of the vast majority of U.S. citizens and take action against these evil-doers and say zero tolerance for torture and zero tolerance for obstruction of justice. Say it loud. Under U.S. Code, Title 18, Part I, Chapter 73, §ec. 1505, penalties for obstruction of justice alone could include a $250,000 fine and up to 8 years in prison.
