 If they don't sanction the ones whose orders they were following, why would they be sanctioned?   Not that I like it but the clean-up should start at the top not the bottom.  These lawyers were just pawns, Cheney and Bush were the real masterminds here (and, yeah, I use the word "mastermind" losely when referring to the Shrub)
