Citing several factors, including unresolved issues from the 1991 Gulf War, the Bush administration claimed intrinsic authority to engage Iraq militarily, and Congress delegated its war powers to the President; from this point of view, the invasion of Iraq, while a war, may therefore be considered a police action commenced by the executive, like the Korean war.
The court decided against a petition from a group of lawyers and human rights organizations called the Republican Lawyers Association, which was representing 17 alleged torture victims. The Stuttgart court said Nehm adequately evaluated the case and approved his refusal of it in February. At the time, Nehm said it was not up to a third state to prosecute the charges, as they are already being investigated in the United States.

Trying world leaders in an international court...to effectly ursurp control over the sovereignty of nations...whose bright idea is this?
No me no think so...me no think.
No matter how much you hate Bush or the war on terror, to try him in an international court while he is a sitting president of the United States is a kin to trying to overthrow our democratically elected government.
NO THANK YOU.
