    Rumsfeld may face abuse charges
    Donald Rumsfeld, who quit as US defence secretary this week, may face criminal charges in Germany for alleged abuses in Guantanamo Bay and Iraq.

    A complaint has been launched by the US-based Centre for Constitutional Rights, representing a Saudi detained in Cuba and 11 Iraqis held in Baghdad.

    German law allows the pursuit of cases originating anywhere in the world.

    The centre made a similar request in 2004 but German prosecutors dropped that case.

    Resignation

    The Centre for Constitutional Rights argues that Mr Rumsfeld was instrumental in abuses committed at Guantanamo Bay and at Abu Ghraib jail in Baghdad.

    The lawyer group alleges that Mr Rumsfeld personally approved torture to be used to extract information from the prisoners.

    It is also seeking to prosecute US Attorney General Alberto Gonzales and former CIA director George Tenet, among others.

    The group's complaint will be filed to German federal prosecutors on Tuesday, a spokesperson for the group said.

    The prosecutors will have to again decide whether the complaint should be heard.

    Mr Rumsfeld resigned on Wednesday following Republican losses to the Democrats in the US mid-term elections.

    The Pentagon has not yet commented on the issue.

    The US denies any torture has taken place at Guantanamo Bay and has defended its interrogation techniques.

    Abuse of prisoners at Abu Ghraib was brought to world attention after photographs of the incidents were released and published.

    Many of you will live to see the defeat of America, many of you will live to see the Islamic Religion and Muslims with their flowing robes and turbins march into America's White House, Congress and Senate and take control of The United States Of America, the first thing they will do is burn the constitution and behead all the liberals.

    MANY OF YOU WILL DIE.

    AMERICA HASN'T WON A WAR SINCE WWII

    off topic: My friend has a source for these insanely hot peppers from deep in the wilds of Sicily. I'll get a bunch of them, make a paste and coat a coil of roofing nails with it. Then I just need a C-clamp to hold back the safety clutch on my nail gun and I'll be ready for bearded hordes:cool:

    On Topic:If they're going after Rummy, then I say we prosecute the President of Volkswagen for all those commercials with the 'zoom zoom' kid. That little schit drove me nuts for years. Both cases seem equally valid to me.

    Yeah, you're right. However prosecuting the Volkswagen guy for a Mazda commercial seems about right considering the precedent established by the Germans :D
