Oh Joy: Amnesty International Calls for George W. Bush to be Arrested

Posted: Dec 01, 2011 2:11 PM

President George W. Bush is currently traveling in Africa to raise AIDs, cervical cancer and breast cancer awareness. Amnesty International sees the trip as a perfect opportunity to call for his arrest. Remember, Bush dedicated more resources and funding to AIDs research in Africa than any other president in history.

Amnesty International urges the governments of Ethiopia, Tanzania and Zambia to arrest former U.S. President George W. Bush during his expected visit to the region between December 1 and 5, 2011, for crimes under international law.

Amnesty International considers that there is enough evidence in the public domain, from U.S. authorities and from George W. Bush himself, to trigger requirements for Ethiopia, Tanzania and Zambia to investigate his alleged involvement in and responsibility for torture, and to secure his presence during the investigation.

"All countries to which George W. Bush travels have an obligation to bring him to justice for his role in torture," said Matt Pollard, senior legal adviser.

If fighting terrorism is considered torture, I'll take more of it.
