Phillipe Sands was a guest on NPR's Fresh Air tonight, discussing his book The Torture Team, An Administration Accused .
One of things Sands talks about in the Fresh Air interview is that international war crimes charges can be brought by any nation. As an insider, consulting international lawyer, Sands described conversations he has had with heads of states of other nations, where the reality of the United States being charged with international war crimes, is often discussed. He said that the current administration doesn't think it will happen because no other nation would do that to the United States. He said that charges could be made against Rumsfeld, Cheney and possibly even Bush.
If I understood what he was saying correctly. Like what happened to Pinochet in Chili, it could take years. Do ya think it will happen?
