In a secret report last year, the Red Cross found evidence of the CIA using torture on prisoners that would make the Bush administration guilty of war crimes, The New York Times reported Friday.
The Red Cross determined the culpability of the Bush administration after interviewing prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, according to the article.
When asked by Maddow if the chances are now greater that Bush will be prosecuted now or after leaving office by the international community, Turley compared the situation to Serbia in the early 90s.
"I'd never thought I would say this, but I think it might in fact be time for the United States to be held internationally to a tribunal. I never thought in my lifetime I would say that."

When was the last time any U.S. President was charged of warcrimes?

Remind me again what court The Red Cross presides over?
The media may listen to his story because it is "shocking", the media likes stuff like that.
The thing that gets to me is that it's possible, even probable, to make mistakes in a time of war. But in this case, the White House didn't even want to know if it had made mistakes, and innocents were suffering. That's not tragic; that's malicious.

The prosecutor of the International Criminal Court is expected to seek the arrest of Sudan's president for alleged genocide and crimes against humanity.
Luis Moreno-Ocampo is set to recommend charging Omar al-Bashir in a report to judges at The Hague on an investigation into war crimes in the Darfur region.
The Sudanese government has warned the move will undermine peace in Darfur.
This will be the first time the court's prosecutor has tried to make a case against a sitting head of state.
A three-judge panel will take at least six weeks to decide whether to indict the president.

Don't hold your breath for too long, my friend, only the people in this nation can bring the present administration to justice or at least forced justice and you know that most American has lost their will to fight and they have no clue anymore what our constitution stands for.
Outside the US bush and his cons are untouchable.

Dude RR are you under a rock? I understand you are a conservative which is fine, but these accusations are a serious matter.
On a side note RR you have said more then once that Bush is not a real conservative (neocon) - So is your allegiance purely to the red or the red, white and blue? I am an independent and your attitude is the type that is going to get me to vote for a black man! If Obama does anything at least he will marginalize the social sociopathy that seems to have infected your party!
Why would we not hold our president to a higher standard? He should be behave better then the average man, yet he behaves and dictates policy on par with a common mafia under boss.
Finally media attention does not mean there is a
lack of truth or reality.
