I think the prevailing notion is that those in power cannot be guilty of a crime if they have not done the action themselves. So Stalin had people
whack millions, Mao the same, and El Presidente's plural ordered ACTIONS that could be considered crimes, but they did not actually do anything and
often, have no real knowledge either - plausible deniability is the rule of the land in politics at the top end.
Once out of power, it then seems folks who care to may go after them, but in the case of the major powers, the police themselves, so there isn't
going to be a criminal event. Mubarak in Egypt is an example of when in power all is fine, out of power, well, things get dodgy in his local district
but the world really doesn't give a crap - Saddam was tried by his own people too.
When you investigate yourself, usually you get off okay.
