With the International Criminal Court’s unprecedented warrant for sitting Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir, the stage is set for the indictment of George W. Bush for war crimes.Â The Bush administration is unapologetic about their violations of US and international laws. Â But according to the Associated Press:
The prospect of the court ever trying Bush is considered extremely remote, however.
The US Government does not recognise the court and the only other way Bush could be investigated is if the Security Council were to order it, something unlikely to happen with Washington a veto-wielding permanent member.Â – AP
Senator Patrick Leahy has called for a Truth & Reconciliation Commission so we can learn exactly what happened during the eight years of Bush’s presidency.
I couldn’t agree more.Â The president has admitted to spying on U.S. citizens, and torturing prisoners who are being held without charge.Â If those are the crimes they will confess, can you imagine what they AREN’T telling us about?
