    I have took notice of several over the years in the mainstream media. Doing their story, or trying to sue the responsible government.

    The infamous CIA itself is a stain :)

    The CIA and NSA are full of right wing Fascist nutcases that need to be hanged by their balls (or vaginas:)) starting from right wing scumbug Hiterlian Edgar Hoover onwards. They need to stop showing cheesy and right wing TV shows which tend to enhance and '"rehabilitate" these SS Nazi agencies in the U.S.

    I seem to recall that the CIA kidnapped, tortured and finally murdered a member or members of President Allende's family before finally deposing him and replacing him with a US friendly General Pinochet.

    You recalled right. But the Chileans were not totally intimidated by that right wing Nazi Fascist pig Pinochet and knocked off quite a few police pigs during his harsh regime.

    GW Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, et al - convicted war criminals.

    In what was the first ever conviction of its kind anywhere in the world, a former US President and seven key members of his administration were found guilty of war crimes. Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and their legal advisers Alberto Gonzales, David Addington, William Haynes, Jay Bybee and John Yoo were tried in absentia in Malaysia. At the end of the week-long hearing in 2012, the five-panel tribunal unanimously delivered guilty verdicts against Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and their key legal advisors who were all convicted as war criminals for torture and cruel, inhumane and degrading treatment. Full transcripts of the charges, witness statements and other relevant material were then sent to the Chief Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, as well as to the United Nations and its Security Council.

    Prosecutions in the US never went up the chain of command, and of course the ICC and UN decided not to go after former high-ranking US officials.

    Small justice, but these high flyers have been very hesitant to ever leave the US for fear of being arrested and charged outside the US. Alberto Gonzalez lives comfortably in Tennessee, but he's less likely to pass through the international terminal of an airport these days than is my friend Alberto Gonzalez, the shoemaker, who visits family in Mexico from time to time without having to look over his shoulder every few seconds.

    Rumsfeld is the only one of the bunch who can rest - that's only because he passed away last summer.
