    Former U.N. Nuclear Weapons Inspector: "GW Bush should face criminal investigation"

    I wanted the title to read: Former U.N. Nuclear Weapons Inspector: "GW Bush should face international criminal investigation", but there wasn't enough space. Anway...

    Found this article from YahooNews.com:

    ElBaradei suggests war crimes probe of Bush team

    From the article:

    Former chief U.N. nuclear inspector Mohamed ElBaradei suggests in a new memoir that Bush administration officials should face international criminal investigation for the "shame of a needless war" in Iraq.

    ...

    He is harshest in addressing the Bush administration's 2002-2003 drive for war with Iraq, when ElBaradei and Hans Blix led teams of U.N. inspectors looking for signs Saddam Hussein's government had revived nuclear, chemical or biological weapons programs.

    He tells of an October 2002 meeting he and Blix had with Secretary of State Colin Powell, National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice and others, at which the Americans sought to convert the U.N. mission into a "cover for what would be, in essence, a United States-directed inspection process."

    I think he should be prosecuted and not just for an illegal and immoral invasion, but for torture and spreading WMD. Millions of pounds of DU (depleted uranium). It is my greatest disappointment with Obama that he did not prosecute. One of many disappointments, I might add. Bush the lesser and Bush the greater both belong in Jail. Bush 1 had to pardon 8 witnesses to keep himself from prosecution.

    I keep trying to post this reply but it keeps telling me my message is too short. Something smells like fish.

    I think right after the prosecute Bush and his team, they do the same to Obama.

    Re: Former U.N. Nuclear Weapons Inspector: "GW Bush should face criminal investigati

    First let me make it clear that I was not in favor of going to War in Iraq and especially not before the Afghanistan war was won.

    Who knew they didn't go into it to win, only for fun and profit, which goes on still today.

    However I have to say that a great number of people forget there was a huge warehouse full of Artillery shells laden with Poison Gas, and that Saddam had used poison gas on his own people.

    They also for get that Saddam himself said before he was hung that he felt he had too mislead the World about him having WMDs to keep Iran from another invasion.


    So many radicals have been brainwashed by the Leftist to be hateful they are always wanting President Bush jailed for anything that comes up.

    Now I have made it very clear that I believe Obama if a worthless lying fool, and I have called for him to be charged for violating his oath of off as it relates to Article 4 Sec. 4 of the Constitution, but I never said to jail him. I have said th=at there needs to be a new law forcing every candidate for the office to prove they are leagal to run, and if found to have lied, then Jailed.

    But what I wish for now is that people stop trying to change facts. In this case I have to assume the only reason we never heard from this author on this before was book sales.

    Re: Former U.N. Nuclear Weapons Inspector: "GW Bush should face criminal investigati

    There is no credible evidence that President Bush launched the war with full knowledge that Iraq did not possess WMD and did not pose any threat to U.S. interests or allies. IMO, the subsequently-released Intelligence assessments showed no credible imminent threat. Subsequent reviews also found major Intelligence flaws. President Bush made a value judgment. No matter how erroneous, a bad decision by itself is not a war crime. There has to be a deliberate choice to launch a war with clear knowledge of the evidence under which a reasonable person would clearly not initiate such a conflict given that evidence. That test is not met. Therefore, Dr. ElBaradei's opinion notwithstanding, I do not expect any international war crimes investigation. History will judge the decision as flawed. It won't judge it as constituting a war crime.

    Uh, yeah! That's a credible source.

    Isn't Elbaradie linked up with the Muslim Brotherhood?

    There is just no groundswell to prosecute anyone. Any attempts were met with American bribery, coercion, and outright corruption. ie. The Hague, Spain, UN, etc.

    Hmm, thought this thread was about Bush? Glad you brought up the book sales, as I feel the guy was a coward to wait so long with his complaints, instead of coming forward, which could have saved thousands of lives. Change "facts?" What changes?
