it's never to late to bring a leader to justice

Former Chilean dictator Augosto Pinochet, who came to office through extra-legal methods, has been indicted in Chile on charges of torture, murder, and kidnapping. Pinochet killed and tortured people allegedly in the cause of security and stability in 1970s Chile.

Do you think this sort of thing generates even the smallest frisson of recognition in de facto President George W. Bush? Let alone for Henry Kissinger, responsible in large part for Pinochet's coup.
