Fujimori's lesson

Peru's former dictator (technically "prime minister") Alberto Fujimori was recently found guilty of crimes against humanity, and sentenced to 25 years in prison. The lesson to be learned is fairly straightforward: preside over crimes against humanity, and you're not guaranteed to get away with it indefinitely - even in your own country. That's a lesson not only for the movers and shakers in the Bush II regime, but also for those who make up the current Obama regime to the extent that the latter appear bound and determined to continue along the path of the former.
