War Crimes Convictions
War Crimes Criminals
Former US President George W. Bush, Vice-President Dick Cheney, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld and their legal advisers Alberto Gonzales, David Addington, William Haynes, Jay Bybee and John Yoo can now add the title WAR CRIMES CRIMINAL to their resumes. The Bush Eight were tried in absentia in Malaysia and found guilty of war crimes. While this conviction is largely symbolic, it’s the first of its kind and could eventually lead to further prosecution in the World Court and other jurisdictions.
Bush recently canceled a trip to Switzerland. His conviction as a war criminal may have been instrumental in reaching that decision. If nothing else, the Bush Eight will now have to think long and hard about traveling outside the United States.
