    AFP: Bush, Rumsfeld should be pursued for torture: UN rapporteur

    BERLIN (AFP) — 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.

    ====================================================================


    The UN might force the hand of our own Justice Department on this. I hope the world doesn't prosecture these criminals before we do, that would be embarrasing. If indeed Bush, Rummy and Cheney did nothing wrong, the truth will set them free. They should have nothing to fear in a court of law.

    They shouldn't have any problems with thorough investigations if they have nothing to hide, now should they?

    Torture is a ten year old boy who's father used to work in The World Trade Center, the boy is watching TV in NYC on 9/11/01 at 10 AM, he sees a Man jump out of a window 100 story's above the street, the man starts flapping his arms trying to fly as he seems to float down to smash on the sidewalk and splatter like a watermelon, the boy turns to his mother and asks "was that daddy"

    Absolutely hilarious if anyone thinks that we give two #@@#s about what that worthless waste of space of a organization wants! Yeah im sure the first order of buisness is to bring Bush up on war crimes, not saying he doesnt deserve it or not just saying your freaking nuts if you think a man that connected in this country would be tossed to them rejects in germany!

    Yeah, an organization that unites nations and performs humanitarian missions and runs schools and hospitals in places like Gaza is a waste of space.

    And yeah, because the guy is connected means that he should get away with, you know, whatever. Yeah!

    That explanes why you noticed it so fast. ;)

    My bad, the UN is a bastion of honor, truth, and integrity. If the UN says it, wants it, or demands it, then all must obey. Except of course when it's laundering money, raping virgins in African countries, fuelling the prostitution trade in the Balkans, selling promotions, circumventing the law, watching idley while the innocent die, crying about an anti-terrorism border wall while simutaneously building it's own border fencing in another part of the world, is trading innocent women & children to prevent itself from being attacked by the forces it's supposed to defend those innocent women and children from, or is not patroling a UN peacekeeping zone cuz it's too dangerous to go out at night. :rolleyes:

    An organization that launders money, takes bribes, gets kids lucrative jobs, rapes virgins around the world, leaves the people it's supposed to protect for dead, trades the people it's supposed to protect for it's own safety, doesn't patrol zone it's supposed to, by decree of it's own resolutions, is involved in a ponzi scheme aimed at globalization through taxation.

    The UN is a complete and utter waste of a noble intention.

    Well, no. Like most things there's good with the bad. So instead of pissing on it the position should be let's fix it. Even today though it works better than American government (e.g., Katrina). Have you seen UN troops keeping the peace in recent war zones? I have, and the UN does that far less vested interest than, say, the US.
