Fox News’ senior judicial analyst made some surprising remarks Saturday that
may go against the grain at his conservative network.

In a interview with Ralph Nader on C-SPAN’s Book TV to promote his book Lies
the Government Told You, Judge Andrew Napolitano said that President George
W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney should have been indicted for “torturing,
for spying, for arresting without warrant.”

The judge believes that it is a fallacy to say that the US treats suspects
as innocent until proven guilty.…

Elena Kagan, President Barack Obama’s latest nominee to the Supreme Court,
helped protect the Saudi royal family from lawsuits that sought to hold al Qaeda

The suits were filed by thousands of family members and others affected by
the Sept. 11 attacks. In court papers, they provided evidence that members of
the Saudi royal family had channeled millions to al Qaeda prior to the bombings,
often in contravention of direct guidance from the United States.…

Following a two-year investigation, the military concluded that the men had committed suicide. Recent first-hand accounts by four soldiers stationed at the base at the time of the deaths, however, raise serious questions about the cause and circumstances of the deaths, including the possibility that the men died as the result of torture.…
