Today, Tom Tomorrow reviews the press conference about torture that marked the nadir of the Obama presidency. What the POTUS 44 should have said is "War crimes have been committed and I have ordered the FBI to arrest The Dubster and all others who had a role in torture after September 11, 2001. All of the accused war criminals will be extradited to The Hague to stand trial for crimes against humanity. If the United States participated in war crimes trials in both Germany and Japan after WWII, the United States of America can do no less in the 21st century." Unfortunately, the POTUS 44 resorted to weasel words and and babbled to a conclusion. If this is (fair & balanced) national chagrin, so be it.
