Could President Bush Be Charged As A War Criminal?

The Economist magazine recently asked if President George W. Bush might face some type of international war crimes trial after he leaves office. A retired American general is quoted as saying that the Bush administration is likely guilty of war crimes for prisoner abuse at Abu Ghraib in Iraq.

Human rights activists in France and Germany have begun to seek human rights charges against former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld. The article I link to explains the specifics.

You might think that lying his way into a tragic war might have already merited President Bush a charge of treason.

Still, maybe an outside chance of justice exists with evolving standards of international law. If not the justice of Mr. Bush being apprehended while abroad and placed in a cell, at least the prospect of formal charges and a measure of circumspection by Mr. Bush as to where he travels after his Presidency.

Can a person in power get away with anything at all? One hopes that after such a brutal 20th-century, the 21st-century will bring new and better standards of global justice.

Please click here for a review of The Dark Side–The Inside Story Of How The War On Terror Turned Into A War On American Ideals by Jane Mayer. This book discusses the Bush response of torture and breaches of American civil liberties as part of the so-called “War on Terror.”

  3. the puppet bush and rumsfeld are nothing compared to the illuminati billderburgers and the masons, remember bush asshole cheney & the rest of the faggot admin guys are the front men for a much bigger plan. remember in the highly accidental televised broadcast of bush stateing to the group of Elites, some call you the elite I (bush)call u my base! now think about this. also did you know that the saudi’s own 6% of the U.S. and that the bin laden family also part of the elites were the only planes that were allowed to fly on sept.11 2001.
