Over the past few years there has come an ever increasing cry about G.W.Bush and other
members of his administration being charged as "war criminals".

Most of this is cited as political retoric and seemingly dismissed out of hand.

I can not help but wonder about the validity of these charges and the possible out come
"if" any of these people were to be detained and called to account for them. I have little expectations of this happening but I have to ask.

On another level, I also wonder if the Obama administration is, or can be charged as, being complicide in these charges as an "accessory after the fact". Because of his refusal to even discuss looking into anything relating to the wars started by our invasion of soveriegn nations based upon lies. This would also seem to cover Attorney General Eric Holder. It should be his job to fully investigate any such charges, if for no other reason than to show them to be false.

Does a charge of being such an accessory qualify as "high crimes"?

Would such "criminal" charges be sufficient to call and secure his impeachment?

I would be very interested to get some responses from others to see if I am the only one who has these questions?

In a word? No. It's just rhetoric. They followed the rules of law (however bent) and thus, will suffer no consequesnces.

I'm sorry, but you brought it up - about obeying the laws, even thought they bent them.

Which of the Inernational Laws under the Genieve Convention did they "bend" but not break?

Oh, by the way the U S was instrimental in developing, passing , and signing these same laws.

The only laws that apply are U.S. laws. They received congressional approval (Bush & Obama) so they are under no pending judgement. The only grey area is Libya. Obama hasn't gotten approval for that, but what's being done is in question.

The facts of the matter are thus.

Yes, the Bush administration, under the legal advice of John Yoo, committed several war crimes, including (but not limited to), torture of a foreign national, torture of a national, extraordinary rendition, use of biological weapons, and most likely several others.

The reason that the Obama administration won't do anything, is because they have broken many of the same war crimes.

Sad, but true.
