I want to say to my leftist friends how terribly sorry I am that your dreams of seeing George Bush and the rest of BushHitlerCo hauled before a Spanish court have gone up in smoke. I realize this comes as a terrible shock to you to know that you can’t actually bring someone up on charges based on a fraudulent book. How many times have you had that war crimes football yanked from in front of your foot again?
For the rest of us, let’s sit back and have a good chuckle over what got the moonbats thinking that their 6-year nightmare of George Bush and the nasty
Jews neocons was about to end. The stories were based on a post at The Daily Beast. The alleged reporter, Scott Horton, wrote,
Spanish prosecutors have decided to press forward with a criminal investigation targeting former U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales and five top associates over their role in the torture of five Spanish citizens held at Guantánamo, several reliable sources close to the investigation have told The Daily Beast.
Except that the truth was exactly the opposite of what he reported. As Mario Loyola, who can read Spanish, points out, the Spanish press had the real story, the chief prosecutor of Spain’s national trial court had adamantly opposed going forward with the case and advised the referring judge not to do so either.
In other words, the prosecution was never going to happen. Ouch. That’s like being told by a friend that you were going to get a brand-new bicycle for Christmas because your friend saw your parents buying it at the store only to find out that not only did your friend mislead you but also that your parents are never going to buy you a bike.
But hey, at least President Obama’s standing by his campaign promise to bring all out troops out of Iraq right away, right?
