Bending Toward Justice 

Just in:

MADRID (Reuters) - Spain's High Court sentenced an Argentine former navy captain to 640 years in jail on Tuesday for crimes against humanity, convicting him of throwing political prisoners from planes during Argentina's "dirty war."

Adolfo Scilingo, 58, was put on trial in Spain for genocide, the first in Spain under laws allowing the prosecution of crimes committed in another country, but the court ruled that "crimes against humanity" was the correct legal term.

Keep some room on that court docket for Bushco, Spain. The arc of history is long but it bends toward justice. And we don’t have any room in U.S. prisons for that crowd.

Hey--it could happen.
