Red Cross investigators concluded last year in a secret report that the Central Intelligence Agency’s interrogation methods for high-level Qaeda prisoners constituted torture and could make the Bush administration officials who approved them guilty of war crimes, according to a new book on counterterrorism efforts since 2001.
The book says that the International Committee of the Red Cross declared in the report, given to the C.I.A. last year, that the methods used on Abu Zubaydah, the first major Qaeda figure the United States captured, were “categorically” torture, which is illegal under both American and international law.
As previously reported the Massachusetts School of Law at Andover, plans to convene a ‘convention’ to plan strategies to prosecute members of the Bush administration for war crimes.
After years of disclosures by government investigations, media accounts, and reports from human rights organizations, there is no longer any doubt as to whether the current administration has committed war crimes. The only question that remains to be answered is whether those who ordered the use of torture will be held to account.

This issue is no longer something that can be written off as a partisan or 'extremist' view. Our leadership has a serious problem. Don't they usually hang war criminals? There is NO statute of limitations on these crimes and Bush could be prosecuted years in the future. Multiple investigations, reports and Supreme Court decisions have showed both constitutional violations and violations of international law.
