Let's get one thing clear here ......

It was I and not Hans Blix that found the weapons of mass destruction.
I was walking down a back street in Baghdad with a U.S. military officer when I suddenly looked down on the ground and saw 11 paper clips and 4 rubber bands.
I immediately telephoned my findings to President George W. Bush in Washington and he declared me a hero.
It eventually ended up with Saddam Hussein dancing on the end of a rope.

Glad to see the courts rejected that one. If Bill Clinton can be put through the ringer for a personal liason in the White House, Rumsfeld shouldn't have immunity for ordering torture from his office.

Nobody gives a flip about your crap woodchuck. But the prosecution of the guilty from the previous regime who pushed our country over the cliff that's a different story. If they twist this rats tail he will squeal on all of them. I see A mysterious accident in rummy's future

These lawsuits against good, honorable Rummy are torture!

I hope John Woo is next.

And I hope they get snagged by any prosecutor for the Criminal Court the next time any one of them flies out of the US.

Rumsfeld will never serve time. The USSC would never allow it. I doubt Obama would allow it either.

Where have we heard that before? Love it or Leave it. Rummy is the perfect place to start squeezing, the torturers.

the irresponsibility and mismanagement of this Administration will go down in our history as among the darkest moments our government has witnessed. It rots the very fiber of democracy when our government is put to these uses. We do not yet know all the damage that has been done. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse

I realize that allegations of sexual abuse/assault and harrasement are not important and women should not be able to sue their attackers or have their case heard in court but Clinton was guilty of perjury.

So you agree that Obama should be impeached and tried? He has carried out all of Bush's policies so if one is guilty the other is too.

All of these Leftist, anti-American traitors spewing their lies and disinformation about the Bush administration should be buried up to their necks in the many tons of yellow cake uranium found in Iraq and shipped to Canada.

First, they try to establish water-boarding as torture falsely. Then, they try to tell you it was common policy, when maybe two, or three primary terrorists received that treatment. Then, they assert the dominance of a Left Wing international court as having legitimate control over US citizens. None of their assertions are true and they are stupid and they should be in prison, mostly because they have killed millions of babies for convenience and don't think for a moment that is a crime against humanity.
