Mel Martinez surfaces in Wikileaks

The former Florida senator apparently had a role in a U.S. bid to stop Spain's torture probe of six senior Bush officials.

The Guardian says a "major worry" for the Bush administration was a torture case brought by a Spanish "non-governmental organisation against six senior Bush administration officials, including the former

Martinez, it says, "visited the Spanish foreign ministry to warn the investigation would have
consequences. " Martinez and the charge underscored that the prosecutions would ... have an
enormous impact on the bilateral relationship," the officials reported.
