Bush admitted waterboarding. Can we charge him with war crimes, NOW, Mr. Obama?

Please?  I’d like to start believing in the rule of law again.

Amnesty International’s Senior Director Claudio Cordone said in a statement: “Under international law, anyone involved in torture must be brought to justice, and that does not exclude former President George W. Bush.

“If his admission is substantiated, the U.S.A. has the obligation to prosecute him,” he said. “In the absence of a U.S. investigation, other states must step in and carry out such an investigation themselves.”

via Amnesty: prosecute Bush for admitted waterboarding.
