Not sure how this is going to play out

Spanish prosecutors have apparently decided to indict six high-ranking Bush administration officials for torture.  Includes Gonzalez, Yoo, Addington, etc.

Is this like the Bashir case, where the indicted did in fact commit the crime, but prosecution will probably backfire, or is there some merit here?  Very interesting trade-off between law and politics here.
