Do tell....

Seymour Hersh:
You cannot believe how many people have told me to call them on 20 January [the date of the next president's inauguration],' he says, with relish. '[They say:] "You wanna know about abuses and violations? Call me then." So that is what I'll do, so long as nothing awful happens before the inauguration.' He plans to write a book about the neocons and, though it won't change anything - 'They've got away with it, categorically; anyone who talks about prosecuting Bush and Cheney [for war crimes] is kidding themselves' - it will reveal how the White House 'set out to sabotage the system... It wasn't that they found ways to manipulate Congressional oversight; they had conversations about ending the right of Congress to intervene.'
The neocons may have gotten away with it for now. But I hope they become afraid to travel because citizens keep trying to arrest them, countries try them for war crimes in absentia, more and more loyal Bushies come forward and tell us what they were made to do and how they broke the law. I want them to live long and fearful lives cowering from the angry world community.

Yes, we the people, not just foreign countries, need to keep the fear of arrest in these people. Of course, Bush already has purchased his ranch in Paraguay which has no extradition policy and Cheney is already set up in Dubai where Halliburton is now located. Yep, Country First for those Repukes.
Hopefully another country will haul them into the Hague for war crimes if we don't have the backbone.

Yes, please. How about being arrested by the Iraqi police for depleted uranium poisoning, destruction of cities and infrastructure, and the unwanted murder of hundreds of thousands of innocents?
