Rumsfeld flees France fearing arrest Sat, 10/27/2007 - 08:45

Former US Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld fled France today fearing arrest over charges of "ordering and authorizing" torture of detainees at both the American-run Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq and the US military's detainment facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, unconfirmed reports coming from Paris suggest. US embassy officials whisked Rumsfeld away yesterday from a breakfast meeting in Paris organized by the Foreign Policy magazine after human rights groups filed a criminal complaint against the man who spearheaded President George W. Bush's "war on terror" for six years. Under international law, authorities in France are obliged to open an investigation when a complaint is made while the alleged torturer is on French soil.According to activists in France, who greeted Rumsfeld shouting "murderer" and "war criminal" at the breakfast meeting venue, US embassy officials remained tight-lipped about the former defense secretary's whereabouts citing "security reasons". Anti-torture protesters in France believe that the defense secretary fled over the open border to Germany, where a war crimes case against Rumsfeld was dismissed by a federal court. But activist point out that under the Schengen agreement that ended border checkpoints across a large part of the European Union, French law enforcement agents are allowed to cross the border into Germany in pursuit of a fleeing fugitive."Rumsfeld must be feeling how Saddam Hussein felt when US forces were hunting him down," activist Tanguy Richard said. "He may never end up being hanged like his old friend, but he must learn that in the civilized world, war crime doesn't pay."

Lest we forget:

What Congress Really Voted For: Benchmark #1: Privatizing Iraqi Oil for US Oil Companies
By Ann Wright, US Army Reserves Colonel, Retired.
Thursday, May 24 the US Congress voted to continue the war on Iraq. They called it “supporting the troops.” I call it stealing Iraq’s oil-the second largest oil reserves in the world. The “benchmark” or goal the Bush administration has been working on furiously since the US invaded Iraq is the privatization of Iraqi oil. Now they have the US Congress blackmailing the Iraqi Parliament and Iraqi people: no privatization of Iraqi oil, no reconstruction funds.

... Let's send a list of congressmen and women to France, at least there they can be arrested for deliberately torturing a nation by sending our youth to die for a lie, for their greed, and complete lack of courage.
At least there someone seems to pay some homage to the law.

As it has always been with the USA from the Merchants of Death in WWI and Samuel Bush to Hitler's Angel, Prescott Bush and today, bin Laden's buddy, Junior, the adolescent, narcissitic personality disorder inflicted on the nation by the corrupt Supreme Court.

The Church Lady...

Why Rummy ran from France faster than a faith based million goes from Pat Robertson to Charles Taylor,
Those lizards can slither can't they?

Reptilian rummy for the border ran,
when they found out he tortured,
They sent him to Iran,
They decided him too old - too tough
and sent him to Iraq - enough
he cried, I can explain
"no heart - just brain."

There is a rap in there somewhere...I can hardly wait for Saturday Night Live this week...what a gift!
