Please Buy Donald Rumsfeld a Ticket to Germany

Ok, if we all pitch in, we can afford to buy former (that has a nice ring to it) Secretary of Defense Don Rumsfeld a one-way plane ticket to Germany.  For in Germany, he can face the war crimes charges that are currently being filed against him in that country.  Also facing charges are Alberto 'Torture Boy' Gonzales, George Tenet, and other senior level members of the Bush administration.

 

The charges are a result of Rumsfeld's direct involvement in the torture and abuse of prisoners at Abu Ghraib.  The key witness that would testify against Rumsfeld is former U.S. Brigadier General Janice Karpinski, who was stationed at Abu Ghraib when the abuse happened. 

 

The charges are filed in Germany because German law allows for universal jurisdiction when it comes to war crimes.  Of course, that law is laughable as they have little control of the actions of other nations. Rumsfeld was actually scheduled to speak in Munich in the next few months, but I'm betting he's not going to show for that.

 

Also, If you believe that Rummy was only torturing terrorists, think again.  When the Red Cross was allowed to enter Abu Ghraib prison, they discovered that about 80% of the prisoners had done nothing.  They were simply picked up in sweeps.  The U.S. effectively confirmed that number by releasing hundreds of prisoners shortly after the story broke.

 

The Rumsfeld story, as reported by TIME Magazine, is just the first step in what could prove to be many hearings, subpoenas, and criminal charges against this administration.  There are many people from the Nixon administration that eventually went to jail and what they did pales in comparison to the actions of Bush and his people.

 

The Democrats will chair all the committees in both the House and the Senate, so they will have the authority to call hearings and issue subpoenas.  It remains to be seen just how far they will go, but I, for one, am not holding my breath.  The Democrats have proved over the last six years that they are wimps that stand up to nobody.  The only reason they won the election is because they are not Republicans.  So Don Rumsfeld can probably rest easy and retire to his multi-million dollar estate.  His crimes are real, but he will likely never be imprisoned for them.
