Is George W. Bush An International War Criminal For Condoning Torture?


President George W. Bush admits for the first time in his new
memoir that he personally approved the use of waterboarding,
a technique in which an interrogator simulates drowning on a
suspect. The method, which most describe as torture, has
since been banned by the Justice Department.

In his book, "Decision Points," Bush asserts that he was asked
by the Central Intelligence Agency whether he would support the
agency's waterboarding of Khalid Sheik Mohammed, the alleged
9/11 mastermind.

"Damn right," Bush says that he said.

Before he had been in office two full days, President Obama issued
an executive order banning torture: ending the CIA abuse of
detainees, closing U.S. secret prisons, and providing the
International Committee of the Red Cross with access to U.S.held
detainees.

Under Bush, torture became official US policy and therefore Bush
should be subjected to the same consequences as any head of state
that condones such practices. Remember no one is above the law,
not even US Presidents.

And now we find out that the DOJ let pass a deadline to prosecute
CIA Torture Tapes destruction!
