Former President George W. Bush cancelled a trip to Geneva, Switzerland planned for Saturday for fear of criminal prosecution and possible arrest. The trip was cancelled because of charges filed by several organizations and individuals against him accusing him of being responsible for torture and war crimes committed by soldiers, intelligence agents, and security personnel under his command in Iraq, Afghanistan, Guantanamo, and other locations.
Even the U.S. embassy in Bern confirmed that Bush’s visit was cancelled “solely” due to the threat of his possible criminal prosecution and arrest.
...and this coming from the continent which allowed Hitler to reign free.
Perhaps the World Court got its nose tweaked when Mr. Bush withdrew a treaty between the U.S. and the World Court in 2002, and is retaliating against Mr. Bush.
Said Judge Richard Goldstone the first chief prosecutor at The Hague war crimes tribunal on the former Yugoslavia, echoed these sentiments saying:
"I think it is a very backwards step. It is unprecedented which I think to an extent smacks of pettiness in the sense that it is not going to affect in any way the establishment of the international criminal court".
"The US have really isolated themselves and are putting themselves into bed with the likes of China, the Yemen and other undemocratic countries," he added.
Congress wrote the Patriot Act. Mr. Bush simply signed said Act into law. It's up to the Judicial Branch to determine if Congress' laws are legal.
