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.

FBI Opens War Crimes File On Bush Regime

Wars of aggression (themselves based upon lies and blatant propaganda campaigns), abduction of civilians, suspension and elimination of habeus corpus, and torture.  It sounds as if even the FBI may have finally had enough of the Bush regime’s shenanigans.  The fact that this is coming about from the FBI, one of our, shall we say, less-than-progressive institutions, is important in and of itself.  This is big, and bad for Bush.  So it most likely will prove to be good for America.

A very detailed article on the subject can be found here.  I recommend you download the PDF of the Inspector General’s report before it becomes suppressed literature.

No, seriously.
