Unhinged CCR Announces Bush Indictment For Torture


Interesting that the Center For Constitutional Rights, a far left pro-communist and open borders lobby group, has never announced an indictment against people like Osama Bin Laden, Ayman Al-Zawahiri, or any of the other Islamic terrorists on the FBI’s top 10 list. Of course, like so many on the far left, they quietly support the ideals of Islamic terrorists, and Islamists in general, and tend to avoid discussion of things like al Qaeda having an actual torture manual, beheadings, hanging gays and women who have been raped, suicide bombings, and all the other things the hardcores do. No, instead they announce an indictment of President Bush

GENEVA and NEW YORK – February 7 – Today, two torture victims were to have filed criminal complaints, with more than 2,500-pages of supporting material, in Geneva against former U.S. President George W. Bush, who was due to speak at an event there on 12 February. Swiss law requires the presence of the torturer on Swiss soil before a preliminary investigation can be opened. When Bush cancelled his trip to avoid prosecution, the human rights groups who prepared the complaints made it public and announced that the Bush Torture Indictment would be waiting wherever he travels next. The Indictment serves as the basis on which to prepare country-specific, plaintiff-specific indictments, with additional evidence and updated information. According to international law experts at the New York-based Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) and the Berlin-based European Center for Constitutional and Human Rights (ECCHR), former presidents do not enjoy special immunity under the Convention Against Torture (CAT).

According to the Bush Indictment, which was written on behalf of torture victims by CCR and ECCHR, former President Bush bears individual and command responsibility for the acts of his subordinates which he ordered, authorized, condoned or otherwise aided and abetted, as well as for the violations committed by his subordinates which he failed to prevent or punish.

The Bush Torture Indictment, the official “letter of denunciation” summarizing the case and other materials are available here: http://ccrjustice.org/ourcases/current-cases/bush-torture-indictment.

I’d say this is unbelievable, but, really, it’s not, not when we are discussing the hard left, which has more in common with America’s enemies, not to mention the enemies of freedom, liberty, and modern life. These are the people who would constantly deflect and never answer questions such as “and Islamist has planted a nuclear weapon in your parents home town. Would you waterboard the suspect to gain the information quickly to save your parents life?” The answer in their world is always “no, I wouldn’t”, but, they won’t ever say that.
