    Accusation of Rumsfeld is thrown out:

    [size=+3]French prosecutors throw out Rumsfeld torture case[/size]

    PARIS (Reuters) - The Paris prosecutors' office has dismissed a suit against Donald Rumsfeld accusing the former U.S. defense secretary of torture, human rights groups who brought the case said on Friday.

    The plaintiffs, who included the French-based International Federation of Human Rights Leagues (FIDH) and the U.S. Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR), said Rumsfeld had authorized interrogation techniques that led to rights abuses.

    The FIDH said it had received a letter from the prosecutors' office ruling that Rumsfeld benefited from a "customary" immunity from prosecution granted to heads of state and government and foreign ministers, even after they left office.

    It said in a statement it was "astonished at such a mistaken argument" and said customary immunity from prosecution did not exist under international law.

    Only bad news sells.

    LOL... why do you act so indignant when your threads go 0-for-ed?

    at this point, is anyone fazed that one Bush League-protected criminal after another has the legal proceedings against him thrown out, or charges communted? i mean really... it's hardly a declaration of innocence...

    rotten to the core... regardless of the fact that the judicial process is in Cheney's pocket... rotten to the core...

    sometimes i can't tell if you routinely miss the point on purpose, or if you really just don't ever get it...

    And I consistently marvel at your utter paranoia. "Cheney has the entire judicial process in his pocket"!!!

    And BB has secretly wired the opposing team's benches for signal stealing.
