    Leading Professor Francis A. Boyle of the University of Illinois College of Law in Champaign, USA, has filed a complaint with the prosecutor for the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague against US citizens George W. Bush, Richard Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, George Tenet, Condoleezza Rice and Alberto Gonzales (the “Accused”) for their criminal policy and practice of “extraordinary rendition” perpetrated upon about 100 human beings.

    “Extraordinary rendition” is a euphemism for the enforced disappearance of persons and their consequent torture. This criminal policy and practice by the Accused constitutes crimes against humanity in violation of the Rome Statute establishing the ICC.

    It's only torture if defined by law. Waterboarding was legal. Therefore, the case has no merit, even though they ordered waterboarding.

    As for the sexual torture, well, it obviously wasn't them.

    Disappearance? Anyone could look up the names of the captives held at anytime. Thus, no disappearance as they could be found.

    I don't suppose you see anything wrong with "the accused"

    don't bother answering, the question was designed to expose you as morally bankrupt person. :cool:

    Try to waterboard your children. Then use your argument to defend yourself in the court.

    Anyone who thinks they were just waterboarding is a complete moron.

    But then wrap whatever they were doing in the ludicrous word of 'freedom' and everything is suddendly justified.

    An excellent counter-defence. Perhaps this case has some merit afterall.

  9. A US soldier apparently did just that!
  10. International Law.

    I dunno about US law, but I suspect that it may well be illegal in US law as well.
