ElBaradei suggests war crimes probe of Bush team AP News today... Hmmm...?

By CHARLES J. HANLEY, AP Special Correspondent

NEW YORK – Former chief U.N. nuclear inspector Mohamed ElBaradei suggests in a new memoir that Bush administration officials should face international criminal investigation for the "shame of a needless war" in Iraq.

If a 'needless war' is his criteria, why go back to last decade when we have Obama to try in court for Libya today?

Obama is even a lawyer, he can be his own defense team. Be even better than the OJ trial for must see TV... Wouldn't it?

    At least George Bush had the approval of the United States congress before the Iraq war.

    Obama violated the Constitution by not even consulting Congress before starting a war with Libya.

    Mohamed ElBaradei's name last came up when the George Soros backed revolution in Egypt tried to install him as Mubarack's replacement. The people involved in toppling the Egyptian government, Soros, Zbignew Brazinsky, and Jimmy Carter are all liberal Democrats.

    The "Iraq Liberation Act" passed in 1999 and signed into law by Bill clinton made it official policy of the United States to topple Saddam Hussein.

    The Bush War was based on lies, especially ones that tried to link Osama and Saddam - when anyone that has eyes to see would have known that those two would have been deadly enemies. Even if 9/11 had never happened, there would be US troops in Iraq:

    That war was planned even before Bush moved into the White House. Personally, I think the Blackwater people in the story below were used so much in Iraq for the sole purpose of the Bushie White House to be able to weasel out of war crimes investigations - for the simple reason they were *contractors* technically not under the commander-in-chief's direct command.

    Obama is not directly involved in any "war," nor is it illegal - it has the UN and Arab Leagues' go - ahead, unlike Bush, who completely ignored the UN. They are two completely different situations.

    ANSWER: ... LOTS of folks claim Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld are War Criminals.

    Heck, those three don't even dare travel outside the USA - for fear of being arrested.

    But I can read between the lines of your post - you HATE America - HATE our troops - and are willing to bash both with impunity.

    Obviously - you gravitate to the Republican Party - - - the party of mendacity.

    Thanks!
