Sen. Dodd Supports Investigations and Trials for Torture

Sen. Chris Dodd (D-CT)’s father was one of the U.S. prosecutors in the Nuremberg trials. He reminds bloggers in this youtube video that the trials were originally unpopular. Because of the rise of the Cold War, many people in Europe and the USA wanted to ignore the German atrocities in order to present a united front against the Eastern Bloc.  But when they saw the trials, the people also saw their necessity.

Dodd makes the comparison with the Bush admin. crimes.  We need the Senate investigations and then prosecutions says Dodd.  They might not be popular at first, but they are necessary.  Way to stand for principle, Senator. Your father would be proud.

  1. I support investigations and trials for Dodd’s and Frank’s roles in watching the mortgage crisis arise.

  2. Investigations are certainly appropriate and, if laws were broken, prosecutions. Chuck, I’m bi-partisan in my belief that no one is above the law. I am not convinced that Dodd or Frank have done anything wrong, but I’m all for investigating to find out.
