Bush, Rumsfeld should be pursued for torture: UN rapporteur
http://rawstory.com/news/afp/Bush_Rumsfeld_should_be_pu...

The UN's special torture rapporteur called on the US Tuesday to pursue former president George W. Bush and defence secretary Donald Rumsfeld for torture and bad treatment of Guantanamo prisoners.

"Judicially speaking, the United States has a clear obligation" to bring proceedings against Bush and Rumsfeld, the United Nations Special Rapporteur on Torture Manfred Nowak said, in remarks to be broadcast on Germany's ZDF television Tuesday evening.

He noted Washington had ratified the UN convention on torture which required "all means, particularly penal law" to be used to bring proceedings against those violating it.

"We have all these documents that are now publicly available that prove that these methods of interrogation were intentionally ordered by Rumsfeld," against detainees at the US prison facility in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, Nowak said.

1. Bush should be
hung by the neck until dead. Isn't that what we do to war criminals? We executed Imperial Japanese troops for engaging in waterboarding. What is the fuck is the difference? Bush was all for capital punishment when he was governor of Texas. He was all for it while knowing full well that the defendant did not have equal representation. I hate a fucking fascist. I hate a fuckin' fascist born with a silver spoon in their mouth all the while looking down on the less fortunate. Saying they're lazy niggers that won't work.
