Juan Cole On The Torture Scandal

An excellent post today byJuan Cole in his Informed Comment blog regarding the lack of accountability in the Bush Administration. Professor Cole suggests that rather than America making Middle Eastern goverments more like ours, Bush is making our government more like the sham democracies of the Middle East such Tunisia, Egypt, Jordan, Yemen. In those nations, there is a no fault rule from government officials. If you are a good buddy of the strongman, there is no accountability to the people for any of your actions. Rumsfeld's retention, despite his direct fault for these atrocities, smacks strongly of such anti-democratic practices.
