Amnesty International Calls to Prosecute Bush for Admitted Waterboarding
I support this and basically feel that these activities constitute a war crime.(Nov. 10) -- Amnesty International is calling for the prosecution of George W. Bush following the former president's admission to authorizing waterboarding techniques, according to a report on the human rights group's website.
"Under international law, anyone involved in torture must be brought to justice, and that does not exclude former President George W. Bush," Amnesty International Senior Director Claudio Cordone said in a statement. "If his admission is substantiated, the USA has the obligation to prosecute him. In the absence of a U.S. investigation, other states must step in and carry out such an investigation themselves."
