Cheney and Gonzales Indicted

A grand jury in south Texas has indicted two of the biggest criminals in the Bush "Administration." Good. Here's the article:

Dick Cheney, Alberto Gonzales Indicted By Grand Jury

A South Texas grand jury has returned multi-count indictments against Cheney and former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales.

A South Texas grand jury has returned multi-count indictments against Vice President Dick Cheney and former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales on charges related to the alleged abuse of prisoners in Willacy County's federal detention centers:

The indictment accuses Cheney and Gonzales of engaging in organized criminal activity. It criticizes Cheney's investment in the Vanguard Group, which holds interests in the private prison companies running the federal detention centers. It accuses Cheney of a conflict of interest and "at least misdemeanor assaults" on detainees by working through the prison companies.

Gonzales is accused of using his position while in office to stop an investigation into abuses at the federal detention centers.

Tom again: The spineless "Democrats" in Washington won't do anything, but I'm glad some Texans had the guts to do something. Anything.
