    Here's what this is all about in a nutshell. There's a certain small percent of the population in both the U.S. and Europe who are driven by a seething hatred of George W. Bush, his administration, his father, his wife, his children, and his dogs. Their hatred of all things Bush makes them single issue voters...

    With Bush now a former president, these poor folks really don't have a clue what to do with all that pent up political rage. Bush is quietly jogging around Dallas and enjoying life, while Obama begins to ramp up for a 'surge' of his own in Afghanistan. The Bush-haters are confused, confounded, and in danger of losing their way. So a few of their buddies in Spain have given them some small glimmer of hope... and they'll play it for all its worth.

    Was he tried for war crimes or crimes against his own people?

    Yeah, Spain's gonna make that happen... well, with Obama in office perhaps maybe he would try to have these people extradited, but even then, I seriously doubt it.


    You know who's behind all this. Clinton democrats in the Obama administration. The're going all over the place stirring up hatred of Bush/America so Obama can say "told you so" and demonize the Republicans. It'll backfire and he'll make a fool out of himself. And we all suffer in the eyes of the world.

    Why would you accuse this?

    I have never stated I am against Bush and I have placed many posts on the necessity to exterminate religious extremists

    Actually I have argued with many friends about the need to keep rogue countries in check with WMD's!

    I think all those listed should buy tickets to Spain and invite a media entourage.
    All six at once and then watch the Spaniards.

    They are indicting people that had given advice to Bush.
    The guy bringing the suit spent 8 years in prison for being a terrorism enabler.

    Agreed.

    And I heard on O'Reilly that the attorney in Spain behind the legal action (Gonzalo Boye) served 8 years in prison for collaborating with terrorists.

    And you expect O'Reilly to tell you the truth?

    Gonzalo Boye is one of several lawyers who filed the suit. So he aint "the attorney" behind the lawsuit. He is one of many.

    As for him collaborating with terrorists. Other than the usual right wing wacko sites promoting this little fact to cover up and blur out the facts the case, there is very little online evidence that it is true. In fact all the right wing sites have zero evidence to back up their claims.

    The only reference I could find is from El Mundo, a conservative Spanish newspaper. And this newspaper, along with the Conservatives in Spain have it "in" for anyone connected with the Madrid attacks and exposing the hypocrisy and stupidity of the Spanish right at the time. And guess where Mr. Boye has gained some fame in Spain?... working for the Madrid bombings victims against the Spanish Government and especially the former right wing government.. So one has to question the validity of the claim here also.

    So far, this just another right wing attempt to distort the facts and the issue in such a way that the no one will remember what the hell the whole issue is about.
