Just wait until they find out that after Obama's term he can't travel either, because he continued rendition, 2 wars and/or a multitude of other things Europeans didn't and don't like about Obama or what he has done.

Bush's Swiss visit off after complaints on torture

GENEVA | Sat Feb 5, 2011 11:49am

By Stephanie Nebehay

GENEVA (Reuters) - Former President George W. Bush has canceled a visit to Switzerland, where he was to address a Jewish charity gala, due to the risk of legal action against him for alleged torture, rights groups said on Saturday.

Bush was to be the keynote speaker at Keren Hayesod's annual dinner on February 12 in Geneva. But pressure has been building on the Swiss government to arrest him and open a criminal investigation if he enters the Alpine country.

Criminal complaints against Bush alleging torture have been lodged in Geneva, court officials say.

Human rights groups said they had intended to submit a 2,500-page case against Bush in the Swiss city on Monday for alleged mistreatment of suspected militants at Guantanamo Bay, the U.S. naval base in Cuba where captives from Afghanistan, Iraq and other fronts in the so-called War on Terror were interned.

1. He should be pursued as the international war criminal that he is...

He'll probably end up hiding at the family compound in Paraguay.

16. Too bad they tipped their hand before they could slap the cuffs on The Decider.

Also a shame that he is so ignorant and incurious that the only reason he will regret being unable to travel internationally is the loss of the speaking fees. They always seem to think that liberals are immune to precedent and then are shocked when thy discover they are not.

No one will"snap cuffs on" because no one will get within 100 meters of him.. alive. Even of they did have " papers" they would be handed to lawyers, not to him. Thirdly, it won't ever happen, as it would open the floodgates....like arresting Chavez or Ghadaffi.

Pres. Bush should go. Fuck 'em.

I find it hard to believe that the Swiss would be stupid enough to try and arrest an ex President of the US but W has enough class to just cancel and not cause a fuss.

Me? I'd tell my SS people to beat the living liberal shit out of anyone who tried an arrest.

But that's just me. :p:D
