GOPers on Torture Prosecutions: Is This a Banana Republic?

The Republicans have found their theme regarding war crimes. Any prosecution would be reminiscent of the actions of "a banana republic".

They seem to ignore the fact that it is in banana republics that war criminals are not charged with war crimes. It is in banana republics that the president can ignore the law or state that the law is what he says it is.

If there are no charges brought against these war criminals that will, in fact, be the point at which the US starts to resemble a "banana republic".
