63. From Sid: 'Bush War Crimes' is all in your head'!!!

Okay .....

But they are not in the head of Saleh or the millions of other Iraqi's her claim hopes to get justice for. See, they were there, under the bombs and experienced the torture, the lose of their homes and more than three million of them the loss of their homes and country.

In her Civil Suit, which is the topic of the OP btw, CIVIL SUIT, just to make sure you got that, Saleh laws out the crimes committed by the Bush Cabal against the Iraqi people. Just a sample of the CIVIL SUIT claims:

107. Plaintiff is aware of Nixon v. Fitzgerald, 457 U.S. 731 (1982) in which the United States Supreme Court held in a 5-4 decision that the President of the United States possesses immunity in civil court for actions taken pursuant to his official duties as President. Plaintiff submits that Nixon is distinguishable in that she alleges violations of accepted customary norms of international law.

Plaintiff submits that Nixon does not prohibit a cause of action against the
President or any other Executive official who engages in behavior considered
reprehensible in a civilized society, such as torture, crimes against humanity, or the crime of aggression.

To the extent that Nixon stands for the proposition that the person holding the office of President cannot be held civilly liable for violations of accepted customary norms of international law – such as torture, crimes against humanity or the crime of aggression – then Plaintiff submits that Nixon is wrongly decided and in direct contravention of accepted principles of the common law, particularly the principle that rulers are “under God and the law.”



She is a very smart woman, she anticipated the ludicrous defense of the War Criminals by the DOJ, in her CIVIL SUIT.

We have become so predictable in our defense of War Criminals now that victims already know what our lame defenses will be.

I guess Saleh doesn't agree with you 'that are no Bush Crimes'. HER WHOLE LAWSUIT IS ABOUT BUSH WAR CRIMES.


I wish it was Criminal, as you falsely allege, but so far the criminals are subject only to Civil suits until the US Government or some other Government, charges them with the crimes they are accused of. Saleh, a very courageous Iraqi women, lays it all just as, oddly, many of US remember it.

The blood cannot be wiped from the hands of the Bush cabal, no matter how many loyal subjects try to erase it from memory, or no matter how hard this government tries to defend them.

There were just too many victims. And they will not stop seeking justice until someone listens. History is testament to that fact.
