Karma Comes Early
The irony...Germany is charging top U.S officials with war crimes next week. They want Rumsfeld, Gonzales,Tenet,Addington and others. They tried this in 2004 but backed off to allow Rumsfeld to attend a summit in Munich. Things are different now and they're very serious this time especially since Rummy is out now.
German law allows war crimes charges for actions that take place anywhere in the world by anyone.
The star witness for the defense is the commander of Abu Ghraib during the scandal, Brig. General Janis Karpinski. She's some pissed off with Rummy...can't imagine why?
The Bush Administration rejects international criminal courts because they could charge them with crimes. At least they have a sense of humor.
The plaintiffs are 11Iraqis and a Saudi tortured at Abu Ghraib.
Well if you can't do the time...or if you want to live the rest of your days on the Bush ranch in Paraguay listening to the twins whine, then don't assault and insult civilized standards of conduct and act like fascists and Nazis.
Otherwise, welcome to the consequences of criminal behavior.
