Bush Cancels Visit to Switzerland - Threat of Prosecution

ENEVA, Feb 5 (Reuters) - Former U.S. President George W. Bush has cancelled a visit to Switzerland, where he was to address a Jewish charity gala, due to the risk of legal action against him for alleged torture, rights groups said on Saturday.

Bush was to be the keynote speaker at Keren Hayesod's annual dinner on Feb. 12 in Geneva. But pressure has been building on the Swiss government to arrest him and open a criminal investigation if he enters the Alpine country.

Criminal complaints against Bush alleging torture have been lodged in Geneva, court officials say.

Hand Bush over to the Iraqis

I'm sure they'd love to reward him for those ten years of being 'liberated'.

God dammit, .......whose the

God dammit, .......whose the guy who could'nt keep his big mouth shut, just the POSSIBILITY of it.........and the genius of it.........i reckon something that big would get a few heads up, wondering why a former president is getting arrested........PR department would have been out in force that day

Older date but great story...

I'm good with it being shown over and over.

Maybe it was a sting

to arrest him.

Keynote speaker????

Who on earth in their right mind want him as a keynote speaker? You kidding me... the man can't compose a single sentence that makes logical sense.

Really!?!

How dare you say such a thing! George Bush Jr. is a good man who is working hard to put food on his family so that humans and fish can co-exist! You see, you are trying to fool him once, you can't, fool h.., fool him once you can't fool him again! :)

Bushie was there to support OBGYNs so they "can practice their love on women".

I once met him in the late 80's at an undisclosed location. He was in the rest room talking to himself.

Believe me, he is one scary creature...

What was he saying to himself?

Was he

If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence

If this is true, then it means...

justice is FINALLY closing in on George W. Bush. I can hardly wait for George H.W. Bush's reaction.

The Spirit Is Willing But The Flesh Is Weak

I'm convinced that most or many of our so called elected leaders have been "BLACKMAILED"...The rest of them have sold their soul to the DEVIL for political gain (POWER) and or to the lobbyists (MONEY)

If anyone running for office stands for anything at all they are branded, lied about and or ignored out of a chance to get elected..

90 - 95% of our U.S. Congress believe in and stand for nothing...

If our Congress People Had any Intentions

Of protecting the constitution or the people of this country, then they'd be prosecuting Bush and Obama.

Unfortunately, we have a bunch of worthless individuals looking to line their own pockets as elected representatives....makes you wonder.

the stay at home

President is foiled again. Bastard.

So how do these "extradition" laws work?

Isn't that how we get drug kingpins from another country to stand trial here? Sometimes even as far as invading(Panama)?
