Bush Seeks Immunity for Violating War Crimes Act
by Elizabeth Holtzman
Thirty-two years ago, President Gerald Ford created a political firestorm by pardoning former President Richard Nixon of all crimes he may have committed in Watergate -- and lost his election as a result. Now, President Bush, to avoid a similar public outcry, is quietly trying to pardon himself of any crimes connected with the torture and mistreatment of U.S. detainees.
The ''pardon'' is buried in Bush's proposed legislation to create a new kind of military tribunal for cases involving top al-Qaida operatives. The ''pardon'' provision has nothing to do with the tribunals. Instead, it guts the War Crimes Act of 1996, a federal law that makes it a crime, in some cases punishable by death, to mistreat detainees in violation of the Geneva Conventions and makes the new, weaker terms of the War Crimes Act retroactive to 9/11.
Press accounts of the provision have described it as providing immunity for CIA interrogators. But its terms cover the president and other top officials because the act applies to any U.S. national. [more]

If dictator George steps down and allows an election, the profiteering, obstruction of justice, and the all out taxpayer rip off by the war corporations could be in jeopardy. Nations all over the world would like to have Bush arrested, tried for war crimes, and executed. They have plenty of evidence.
The shithead has to have something else up his sleeve.
