Obama Will Follow the Same Footsteps:
As GW Bush and Administration Are Being Taken to Court For War Crimes
August 20, 2013 the court papers were filed as the, incongruous, United States Department of Justice (DOJ) formally requested that GW Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Colin Powell, Condeleezza Rice and Paul Wolfowitz be granted immunity in a case alleging that they planned and waged war upon Iraq in violation of International Law.
The plaintiff is Sundas Shaker Saleh whi is an Iraqi single parent and refugee now living in Jordan. She filed her claim on March 2013 in San Francisco federal court stating that “the planning and staging of the war constituted a “crime of aggression” against Iraq. A war of agression is a war crime.
The DOJ (I pronounce dodge) contends that the planning and waging of war in Iraq was an action, by the acused and that they were acting within the scope of their employment and thus are immune from suit. This according to cheif counsel Inder Comar of Comar Law said.
So, what this means is that the corrupt government of GW Bush can walk away as if they are not guilty of these terrible crimes. Following this immunity scheme there is the Westfall Act of 1988 that allows the Attorney General to substitute the United States as the defendant and to grant absolute immunity to government employees for actions taken within the scope of their employment.
In her lawsuit, Saleh alleges that:
— Richard Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and Paul Wolfowitz began planning the Iraq War in 1998 through their involvement with the “Project for the New American Century,” a Washington DC non-profit that advocated for the military overthrow of Saddam Hussein.
— Once they came to power, Saleh alleges that Cheney, Rumsfeld and Wolfowitz convinced other Bush officials to invade Iraq by using 9/11 as an excuse to mislead and scare the American public into supporting a war.
— Finally, she claims that the United States failed to obtain United Nations approval prior to the invasion, rendering the invasion illegal and an act of impermissible aggression.
According to COMAR LAW:
“The good news is that while we were disappointed with the certification, we were prepared for it,” Comar stated. “We do not see how a Westfall Act certification is appropriate given that Ms. Saleh alleges that the conduct at issue began prior to these defendants even entering into office. I think the Nuremberg prosecutors, particularly American Chief Prosecutor Robert Jackson, would be surprised to learn that planning a war of aggression at a private non-profit, misleading a fearful public, and foregoing proper legal authorization somehow constitute lawful employment duties for the American president and his or her cabinet.”
The case is Saleh v. Bush (N.D. Cal. Mar. 13, 2013, No. C 13 1124 JST).

Supreme Crime Against Humanity – Robert H Jackson
Submitted by LanceCiepiela on Wed, 08/21/2013 – 1:12am.
If certain acts of violation of treaties are crimes, they are crimes whether the United States does them or whether Germany does them and we are not prepared to lay down a rule of criminal conduct against others which we would not be willing to have invoked against us – Source
The 2003 invasion of Iraq was an unlawful act of aggression and an international crime – the Supreme Crime Against Humanity. It cannot be justified under any reasonable interpretation of international law. It violates the outer limits of laws regulating the use of force – it amounts to mass murder.
They are War Crimes whether George W Bush did them or Adolph Hitler.
It’s time to play catchup with the war crimes that have been going on for decades
