Will a king prosecute a king? Pt 2

Last week, outgoing US Vice-President Dick Cheney made a series of remarkable comments in his exclusive interview with ABC. Cheney admitted to playing a role in the authorization of the use of waterboarding and other ‘aggressive interrogation techniques’, defended the decision to listen-in on domestic phone calls, and essentially provided broad approval for all the actions taken by his government over his tenure.
In the second part of our interview with Michael Ratner we discuss he closing of Guantanamo Bay, the likelihood of the prosecution of George Bush and Richard Cheney and how successful pardons given by the President would be.
