War Crimes Prosecutions essential

This is an important post by Glenn Grennwald. I think he makes the point very well that the demand for war crimes prosecution isn't coming from some shrill vindictive minority, but is the reasoned position of millions of people who believe strongly in the rule of law, and in the principle that prosecution of official crime is the only effective deterrent.

See TPM today, too, for a video interview snippet with Center for Constitutional Rights president Michael Ratner, explaining exactly this.
