Commentary: Fujimori's conviction should give Bush nightmares

There was a truly remarkable news item recently that received less notice than it deserved. A former president was tried, convicted and sentenced to a long jail term for crimes committed in his government's fight against terrorism. No, this was not George W. Bush's worst nightmare come true. However, with new revelations every day, there can be no doubt the Bush administration used torture and committed other illegal acts during its so-called war on terror.
