    Yeah, that's a well understood principle of international law. Sitting heads of state and other government officials are granted "immunity from criminal jurisdiction and [...] inviolability" under this principle. Kinda weird, I know, but I think it has something to do with preserving stability. I'm guessing it doesn't apply to a failed state or an illegitimate government official.
    Sure, it's the same, or very similar to, diplomatic immunity. But while Europeans mind find it advantageous to be ruled from Belgium, I doubt many Americans would feel th same way.

    Composition of the Court

    The Court was composed as follows: President Guillaume; Vice-President Shi; Judges Oda, Ranjeva, Herczegh, Fleischhauer, Koroma, Vereshchetin, Higgins, Parra-Aranguren, Kooijmans, Rezek, Al-Khasawneh, Buergenthal; Judges ad hoc Bula-Bula, Van den Wyngaert.

    I'd love to know where these guys got there legal training, and why anyone should pay any attention to them at all. I certainly didn't vote for them.




    You know, the book he wrote where he vigorously defended his choice to waterboard, or his interview where he admits his rationale for committing torture was that his "lawyer said it was legal."[/QUOTE]

    Wrong choice. We can protect with out torturing. We can punish those who are terrorist without becoming evil men who torture. It is not a choice between torturing or losing innocent lives. The fact is we have been party to inncoent men being tortured. Why would anyone support that? It is the problem when you accept torture, you can't control or know until too late when you have an innocent person.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    I am just glad you and those that support your ideology weren't in charge of this Nation's security. Again, you blamed Bush for not stopping 9/11 and now you blame him for using tactics that prevented other attacks. You have a bad case of Bush Derangement Syndrome, please seek help.

    yep and that's what a lot of the liberals screaming for Bush's head just don't get. If they get Bush...they get a lot of "their guys" with him. At this stage in the game...I'd be willing to sacrifice Bush to get Pelosi and Kerry et al. I'll trade you one ex president for two sitting Senators any day of the week. Sorry George...sometimes you gotta take one for the team.

    Amnesty International is a co-offender, running a mega-million dollar international operation, with hundreds of staff on the payroll and offices in capital cities around the world. Tracing the George Soros dough in Amnesty’s coffers is like unraveling a money-laundering front, with multiple foundations and funds between “The Hitman” himself, George Soros, and Amnesty’s bank account.

    George Soros again. He has an extreme hatred for Bush
