Obama legitimises the Nuremburg Defence

The Obama Whitehouse has released various memos (news to no one who follows the real AKA 'alternative' media) , showing the Bush regime's use of torture, which, to the casual observer, may appear to be a break with the past, but no one is likely to be held accountable, especially as Obama has excused anyone involved who was 'only obeying orders'. According to Attorney General Holder:

“It would be unfair to prosecute dedicated men and women working to protect America for conduct that was sanctioned in advance by the Justice Department."

Such a defence is no defence. We are all responsible for what we do. Claiming that somebody told you to commit felonious crimes does not excuse you of guilt. The abuses of the Bush regime will continue under the new management team.
