Support Bush Torture Indictment & Help Ensure Accountability

Synopsis

On February 7, 2011, the ninth anniversary of the day former president George W. Bush decided the Geneva Conventions did not apply to so-called “unlawful combatants,” CCR released a Bush Torture Indictment. The Indictment provides a strong factual and legal basis to hold Bush accountable–in any of the 147 countries which have ratified the Convention Against Torture (CAT)–for having authorized torture . Learn about it, tell others, and help us build pressure to secure accountability for torture by top U.S. officials.

  1. I had just finished doing a lot of reading on this from David Swanson’s post, the CCR site and others.

    This is as it should be and should have happened long ago.  

    This pretty well sums it up!

    “Waterboarding is torture, and Bush has admitted, without any sign of remorse, that he approved its use,” said Katherine Gallagher, Senior Staff Attorney at CCR and Vice President of the International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH). “The reach of the Convention Against Torture is wide – this case is prepared and will be waiting for him wherever he travels next. Torturers – even if they are former presidents of the United States – must be held to account and prosecuted. Impunity for Bush must end.”

    As to the article of Gordon Duff (that was also shown in a reply to DS’ post), much of the content therein I cannot support.

    Thanks for bringing this news here.  I imagine it will put a “few” people on notice!  😉

    Maybe, we can start to get some law back now!

    that the president and the DOJ are not obligated to prosecute our own war criminals, the Convention Against Torture covenant that the US has signed and was ratified by Congress says otherwise.

    Under article VI (b) of the Nuremberg Principles also makes Obama guilty if war crimes with use of unmanned drones to destroy villages in Pakistan.

  2. Hey, they have not called me back for jury duty!  Rather I study the cutting edge emerging potentials of the post-industrial pre-depopulation area formerly known as the United States.  Bush the younger’s crimes pale in light of Obama’s open contempt for America and endorsement of all things parasitically corpo-globo-fascist.  That would make most things Bush soo Lawrence Welkian.

    How about the continuous din of electronic media turning neighbor against neighbor.  How can sheeple in dystopian disinformation overload ever focus on any true and right path.  Is it funny to explode people who don’t buy into Al Gore’s global carbon taxation scam?  How is the Afghan black ops poppy crop doing?  Was the Pentacon hit by an SS-N-19 Russian cruise missle and just how many continuity of government underground facilities exist.
