Why George W. Bush Should Still Worry
Bush Pens True Crime Book, No Justice for CIA Destruction of 92 Torture Tapes
Sell those books, George W, you may need the money for legal fees yet!
by Bill Quigley
Bush and other criminals will be brought to justice if the Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) and the European Center for Constitutional and Human Rights (ECCHR) have their way.
CCR and ECCHR jointly intervened into a criminal investigation in Spain examining the role of former civilian and military officials from the Bush administration in the commission of international law violations, including torture. The investigation is ongoing and includes the crimes that Bush admitted he authorized.
CCR and ECCHR made it clear that they are committed to pursuing criminal accountability and Bush’s confessions help. In a joint statement they said:
“As Attorney General Eric Holder stated during his confirmation hearings, waterboarding is torture. Calling these acts what they are, torture, is not the result of differing legal ‘opinion,’ as Bush states; it is a matter of law. Harold Koh, the State Department Legal Adviser, confirmed this in Geneva last week, stating during the U.S. Universal Periodic Review that “the Obama administration defines waterboarding as torture as a matter of law” and it is not a ‘policy choice.’
DUmmies, I hope you shitheads feel better after posting this drivel because nothing is ever going to happen. NOTHING. EVER. :pMay the FORCE be with you!

Wow. Using Eric Holder as a creditable source. Other than the guy who hired him, Holder has to be the biggest joke in the place....Well, he has a lot of competition, but he's in the top 10.

29. Maybe not in the US, but other countries are doing something.
Actually, other countries are NOT doing something. Phony Constitutional groups and Kooks like you are POSING.
This attempt was dropped nearly a year ago.
Oh, and the kook who tried to bring the suit? He is a left-wing crusader who is being removed from his position and being brought up on charges of bringing cases outside of his authority to do so.I long for the days when our President actually liked our country.
