1 in 4 Americans believe Bush and co. committed War Crimes from a survey.

link to article:

Forty-four percent (44%) of Democratic voters believe President Bush and senior members of his administration are guilty of war crimes. Only 28% of the nation’s Democrats disagree.

Overall, among all voters, 25% believe war crimes were committed while 54% disagree.

Seventy percent (70%) of the nation’s voters say it would be bad for the United States if the former president and senior administration officials were brought to trial for war crimes. A majority of Democrats (53%) agree with that assessment.

Nineteen percent (19%) of all voters hold the opposite view and believe that bringing Bush Administration officials to trial for war crimes would be good for the nation.

Overall, even Repubs of voters 25% believe war crimes were committed.

I would think it is actually higher, but people don't want to admit and look at the fact the U.S. committed torture.

Thirty-six percent (36%) of U.S. voters say Congress should hold hearing to investigate possible government wrongdoing during the Bush years. Democrats, by a 57% to 27% margin, believe such hearings should be held. Thirty-eight percent (38%) of unaffiliated voters agree as do nine percent (9%) of Republicans.

Twenty-eight percent (28%) believe Congress should hold hearings to investigate possible war crimes by the Bush Administration. Sixty-percent (60%) disagree.

MSNBC commentator Keith Olbermann recently urged President Obama to investigate potential war crimes and other Democratic pundits have expressed a similar view.

I am one of those who agree and part of the group that think they DO need to prosecute.

Also see this thread - from this morning, with the UN special Rep for Torture - he says the "U.S. is required to put Bush and Rumsfield on trial.
