Will there be a day of reckoning for the Bush Administration war crimes?
Somewhere someone with some authority is going to have to step up and actually do their jobs:
George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld covered up that hundreds of innocent men were sent to the Guantánamo Bay prison camp because they feared that releasing them would harm the push for war in Iraq and the broader War on Terror, according to a new document obtained by The Times.
The accusations were made by Lawrence Wilkerson, a top aide to Colin Powell, the former Republican Secretary of State, in a signed declaration to support a lawsuit filed by a Guantánamo detainee. It is the first time that such allegations have been made by a senior member of the Bush Administration.
General Powell, who left the Bush Administration in 2005, angry about the misinformation that he unwittingly gave the world when he made the case for the invasion of Iraq at the UN, is understood to have backed Colonel Wilkerson’s declaration.
A spokesman for Bush had no comment while one for Rumsfeld said the allegations are completely untrue and Cheney's office did not respond.
Meanwhile and in more recent Iraq news, the success of illegaly invading and occupying Iraq is exemplified by the many Iraqis celebrating the recent elections by blowing themselves up along with anyone or anything else nearbye.
