Cables via #Wikileaks show how US conspired with Spain to prevent arrest of Bush Administration heads for war crimes
The US strategy from the beginning of the second Iraq War has
been to deflect criticism and prosecution by blaming others. The war
began with a lie: that Saddam Hussein had WMD (the true reason for
invasion was, of course, oil and an attempt at geo-strategic takeover).
During the course of the war the US Administration ensured it was not
charged for war crimes or torture committed. Above is Part One of a
video interview with Baltasar Garzon, the renowned jurist, and includes
observations about the attempted prosecution of Bush officials regarding
torture allegations and how the US secretly pressurised the Spanish
Government to ensure no such prosecution took place. (Part Two of the
video is below.)
The article – the last in this series – concludes with a
summary of the main charges of war crimes and torture that could be
raised against the Bush Administration.
