Remembering the Nuremberg Trials consisted of the prosecution of the prominent members of the WWII military and political leadership of Nazi Germany, I took the headline to mean someone in the United States had finally gotten the juevos to stand and put Bush, Cheney, Powell, Rice, Rumsfeld, Bremmer, General Miller and a host of other administration war criminals on trial. For just a second, images of sugar plum fairies and hangman's nooses through my mind.
Obviously, as I read the article I learned, the headline was misleading. It was referring to six Guantanamo detainees accused of participating in the 9/11 tacks. I guess I'll have to wait awhile longer for those other trials.
~~~~~Dada addendum: Later in the evening I experienced a true synchronicity. I watched Bush celebrating Black History month on TV. In his brief speech, he mentioned the word "noose" five times. While presenting a noose in the context as historical symbol of physical and psychological suffering by African Americans, I couldn't help wonder if it's prominence in the president's remarks wasn't the result of his same misinterpretation of that AP article's title that may have triggered horrendous images to Bush of the Nuremberg war crimes trials, of war criminals and of the twelve found guilty and hung...from a noose?
As Bush said, "some Americans do not understand why the sight of a noose causes such a visceral reaction among so many people." I'm sure Bush does.
