Will Bush be tried as war criminal?‎

Wed Nov 10, 2010 9:42AM


Many human rights activists believe that George W. Bush is a war criminal who should be prosecuted for crimes against humanity.

Former US President George W. Bush, who is responsible for waging two wars on Afghanistan and Iraq, is back on media covers, but this time as a figure who has been wronged.

Following the release of his memoir entitled “Decision Points” last week, Bush made a media tour after nearly two years of silence, once again raising controversy over his remarks.

Interview with Cynthia McKinney, former US congresswoman

Former US President George W. Bush has said he will not apologize for his mistakes in the 2003 Iraq invasion and defended his decision to allow torture of 9/11 detainees.

The following is Press TV’s interview with former US Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney on the issue:

Press TV: Bush says although there were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, the decision to invade the country was the right one, what do you make of that given the fact that the war was launched on the premise that there were Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq?

McKinney: I think our former president is shedding crocodile tears here. That is what we call it, when people say that they are sorry for something that has happened, but they do not really express remorse.

There is no remorse here. George W. Bush is as wrong now as he was a president. He should be brought [to justice] on charges and held accountable for his actions. The question is: Does the international community have the will to do this?

Press TV: In Britain, there are growing calls for Tony Blair to stand trial because of the Iraq war. Where does George Bush stand in here since he was the one who pushed hard for this war on behalf of the US leadership?

McKinney: George Bush travelled all over Europe, demanding of the leaders of the European countries to betray their own people and go to war [along] with the United States. So, if Tony Blair is held culpable, so too should George W. Bush.

Press TV: How different is Barack Obama, do you think he will face similar charges over the continuation of the Afghanistan war and its expansion to Pakistan and now possibly Yemen?

McKinney: Their war crimes have not stopped. Their crimes against humanity have not stopped. Their crimes against peace have not stopped. There are some people who will make a distinction between a Democratic Party war and a Republican Party war, but they are all the same with the same war crimes that are being committed. So, [the US President Barack] Obama follows in the steps of his predecessor George W. Bush.

‘Prosecuted or not Bush is criminal’

Interview with Mike Gravel, former US senator3

Former US President George W. Bush has said the 2003 Iraq invasion was not wrong and defended his decision in allowing the torture of 9/11 detainees.

The following is the transcript of Press TV’s interview with Mike Gravel, a former US senator, about the issue:

Press TV: George Bush has defended his war and torture decisions, what do you make of his statements?

Gravel: It is very clear he has just confessed to a crime and he has done that in his memoir.

The fact that our government will not prosecute that crime does not obviate the fact that he has confessed to a crime. We have not pursued the fact that he [must be] prosecuted for invasion of Iraq on phony fraudulent information.

So here again, we have a situation where George Bush exposes himself naked to world condemnation with his own memoir. The Guy is preposterous in this regard.

All I can say is that, maybe down the road, there will be an agency of government or we may have an American government that is interested in bringing about justice as these confessions, all by themselves, will be able to be used against George Bush and his administration.

It is a tragedy of American judicial system that [US President Barack] Obama made the decision and will not look back. When a country does not seek justice, it is not a country that will enjoy the full favor of democracy.

‘Bush must be brought to justice’

‘Bush must be brought to justice’

Wed Nov 10, 2010 12:46PM

[http://www.presstv.ir/player/player.swf]
Former US president George W. Bush should be prosecuted for the war crimes he has committed in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, a US politician says.

“Bush is as wrong now as he was president. He should be brought up on charges and held accountable for his actions,” former US congresswoman Cynthia McKinney said in an interview with Press TV on Tuesday.

Referring to the growing calls for former British Prime Minister Tony Blair to stand trial because of the Iraq war, McKinney argued that if “Blair is held culpable, so too should George W. Bush.”

“Bush travelled all over Europe, demanding from the leaders of the European countries to betray their own people and go to war [along] with the United States,” she said.

Bush has said he will not apologize for his mistakes in the 2003 invasion of Iraq and defended his decision to allow torture of 9/11 detainees.

The 43rd president of the United States has abdicated all responsibilities for the deaths of Iraqi and Afghan civilians, claiming that even though he “feels terrible” for the deaths, they were inevitable as they were for a better cause — that is the so-called “liberation” of millions of other civilians.

“I think our former president is shedding crocodile tears here. That is what we call it, when people say that they are sorry for something that has happened, but they do not really express remorse,” the former congresswoman said.

Amnesty International (AI) wants Bush on trial over torture

Wed Nov 10, 2010 3:45PM

Former President George W. Bush admitted to authorizing water-boarding against detainees.
The London-based Amnesty International (AI) has called for a criminal investigation into former US President George W. Bush’s admission of torture.

The rights group’s call comes after Bush confirmed in his recently released memoirs, Decision Points, that he authorized the use of “enhanced interrogation techniques” against detainees held in secret US custody.

Exactly six days after the September 11 attacks, Bush authorized the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) to set up secret detention facilities outside the US.

Amnesty claims multiple human rights violations were committed against detainees in the name of the so-called ‘war on terror.’
