    "In court papers filed today (PDF), the United States Department of Justice requested that George W. Bush, Richard Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Colin Powell, Condoleezza Rice and Paul Wolfowitz be granted procedural immunity in a case alleging that they planned and waged the Iraq War in violation of international law."

    "Plaintiff Sundus Shaker Saleh, an Iraqi single mother and refugee now living in Jordan, filed a complaint in March 2013 in San Francisco federal court alleging that the planning and waging of the war constituted a “crime of aggression” against Iraq, a legal theory that was used by the Nuremberg Tribunal to convict Nazi war criminals after World War II." "Richard Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and Paul Wolfowitz began planning the Iraq War in 1998 through their involvement with the “Project for the New American Century,” a Washington DC non-profit that advocated for the military overthrow of Saddam Hussein.-- Once they came to power, Saleh alleges that Cheney, Rumsfeld and Wolfowitz convinced other Bush officials to invade Iraq by using 9/11 as an excuse to mislead and scare the American public into supporting a war."

    Is this a reasonable case?

    Is the premise of the case logical and legal?

    Was it an aggression because it was an invasion of a Country that presented no threat?

    Does this suit being filed by a person directly damaged by the war add credibility?

    Would you suspect lack of a fair trial because of politics in this matter?
    I'd favor granting members of the Bush administration immunity if they really want to find out the truth about it. But there's no investigation, so something else is going on.

    I think it is clearly a case of CYA (cover your ass) going on. Killing Qaddafi and destabilizing Libya is/was a war crime. The US acts like these results are not the agenda, but I think they have exactly the results they want, including Egypt. Qaddafi was a strong, stabilizing influence for Africa, but he was teaching Africans how to not sell out to Western Corporations and that is what got him killed. Then there is the OIL. Big co inky dink that these wars are in OIL assets. Unthinkable that Big Energy corporations would be the powers behind the throne, eh? In a Nation all about business, we're not supposed to discuss the business of war. This Nation has thrived on War, or at least its' Military/Industrial/Corporate complex has. I suspect it's just about good marketing, promotion, etc. That'd be about promoting WARS, don't you think?

    They are requesting this because the administration has made the statement, in regards to Syria, that the CIC is responsible for all actions of his military.
