The dock awaits

During a trip to Britain, US secretary of state Condoleezza Rice admits to making “thousands” of tactical errors in Iraq. Then she lies:

“We do not tolerate either at home or abroad engagement in acts of torture. We also have no desire to be the world’s jailer. We want the terrorists that have been captured to stand trial for their crimes.”

Nobody believes these denials anymore. The US has become a torturing superpower.

At what point do “tactical” errors become war crimes?
