View Full Version : BUSH pardons himself for possible war crimes
If his bill passes through the U.S. Senate as it has the House, Bush will be legally retroactively exempt from any attempts to hold him (and/or his entire administration, including Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld) accountable for any war crimes committed since September 11, 2001.
At least now he admits he was wrong!
This can't be put through, can it?
People should take responsibility for their actions, whether it's George W. Bush or someone else.
So who is going to take the responsibility?
I sure hope that this bill violates the constitution in one way or another so it'll get repealed, but I have a feeling it won't. How high are chances that Senate does not pass it?
Too late, passed in October '06, this is old news.
Ah, OK. I thought it was a new law, different from the Military Commisions Act.
Well, I still hope it gets declared unconstitutional and repealed. If someone is not a legal combatant, then he's a suspected criminal. There is no gray area in there and there is no need for a new category with less rights than either POW or criminal.
Huh? The house is controlled by Democrats. This is the usual CNN hate of Bush by taking it out of context.
Well, it says a lot about Mr. Bush, but it really doesn't make much of a difference. Nobody in the political system would file or support a lawsuit against a former president (unless he turned out to be a second Hitler), and Bush can't exempt anybody from international law.
