On January 26, a UN official who “specializes” on Torture, Manfred Novak said that George W. Bush and various members of his administration be held accountable for the fact that a world class monster was captured and executed and millions upon millions of people are now free. Evidently there is something immoral about deposing monsters and imposing freedom and democracy on people – if we want justice to be served.
Evidently George W. Bush is a criminal who must be brought to justice at the World Court. If this were to happen something is terribly wrong. The monsters who kill innocent individuals go free, but the monsters who defend them want a great man like GWB imprison and tried as a criminal. The way things are going in Washington these days, I fully expect the USS Incompetent to demand George W. Bush be arrested and literally hung for defending freedom.
It makes you wonder when liberals really don’t like imposing freedom on people and nasty conservatives do.
“….An ex-UN prosecutor has said that following the issuance of an arrest warrant for the president of Sudan, former US President George W. Bush could — and should — be next on the International Criminal Court’s list.
The former prosecutor’s assessment was echoed in some respect by United Nations General Assembly chief Miguel d’Escoto Brockmann of Nicaragua, who said America’s military occupation of Iraq has caused over a million deaths and should be probed by the United Nations.
“David Crane, an international law professor at Syracuse University, said the principle of law used to issue an arrest warrant for [Sudanese President] Omar al-Bashir could extend to former US President Bush over claims officials from his Administration may have engaged in torture by using coercive interrogation techniques on terror suspects,” reported the New Zealand Herald.
The indictment of Bashir was a landmark, said Crane, because it paved a route for the court at The Hague to pursue heads of states engaged in criminality.
“Crane also said that the [Bashir] indictment may even be extended to the former president George W. Bush, on the grounds that some officials in terms of his administration engaged in harsh interrogation techniques on terror suspects which mostly amounted to torture,” said Turkish Weekly.
“All pretended justifications notwithstanding, the aggressions against Iraq and Afghanistan and their occupations constitute atrocities that must be condemned and repudiated by all who believe in the rule of law in international relations,” Brockmann told the Human Rights Council. “The illegality of the use of force against Iraq cannot be doubted as it runs contrary to the prohibition of the use of force in Article 2(4) of the United Nations Charter. It sets a number of precedents that we cannot allow to stand.”
The Bush administration boycotted the Human Rights Council. The day Brockmann made his accusations happened to be the first in which the United States had observers at the council, on orders from President Obama….”
