I'm glad the Swiss at least appear to have principles & that Bu$hCo is scared enough not to visit the country. President Obama's pressure on the Spainish government only confirms what is my sad belief that this country not only will not, but can not live up to its claimed principles. It's too bad & I suppose we'll all just adjust to living in a country that only stands for the rights of corporations to act in any manner they think will add to shareholder value.
In 2009, for instance, a Spanish court began a criminal investigation of six former administration officials, on grounds that they had violated international law in connection with the military prison at Guantánamo Bay. The Obama administration was apparently so concerned about the investigation that it pressured the Spanish government to make sure the case was derailed, according to State Department cables made public by the antisecrecy group WikiLeaks.
