The Law Finds Cheney and Gonzales

I strongly doubt it will go anywhere, but it's a fine start:

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 of Cheney relates to self-dealing, while the charges against Gonzales concern his status as a special-needs yes-man:
The indictment stems from Cheney's investment in the Vanguard Group -- an investment management company that reportedly has interests in the prison companies in charge of the detention centers, according to The Associated Press. It also charges Gonzales halted an investigation into abuse at the detention centers while he was attorney general.
I expect George W. Bush has already drafted the open-ended pardon of both of these filthy clowns, but again, it's a good start.
