Dick and Rummy in the Dock

From Holden:

Silly Europeans. Don’t they know that the rule of law is for suckers?

A European Parliament investigation into alleged CIA secret prisons could ask Vice President Dick Cheney and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld to testify, although it has no legal power to subpoena them, a member of the panel said Thursday.

“Very senior people” would be asked to answer the allegations of human rights violations on EU territory, said Sarah Ludford, vice president of an investigation into the alleged prisons being conducted by the parliament.

“I don’t see why we should not invite Donald Rumsfeld and Dick Cheney,” Ludford said. “I’m sure they would be very welcome and they would be heard with great interest, or (Secretary of State) Condoleezza Rice perhaps, why not?”
