Obama's DOJ Asks Courts to Grant Immunity to George W. Bush For Iraq War

"In court papers filed today (PDF), the United States Department of Justice requested that George W. Bush, Richard Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Colin Powell, Condoleezza Rice and Paul Wolfowitz be granted procedural immunity in a case alleging that they planned and waged the Iraq War in violation of international law.

Plaintiff Sundus Shaker Saleh, an Iraqi single mother and refugee now living in Jordan, filed a complaint in March 2013 in San Francisco federal court alleging that the planning and waging of the war constituted a “crime of aggression” against Iraq, a legal theory that was used by the Nuremberg Tribunal to convict Nazi war criminals after World War II.

“The DOJ claims that in planning and waging the Iraq War, ex-President Bush and key members of his Administration were acting within the legitimate scope of their employment and are thus immune from suit,” chief counsel Inder Comar of Comar Law said.

The “Westfall Act certification,” submitted pursuant to the Westfall Act of 1988, permits the Attorney General, at his or her discretion, to substitute the United States as the defendant and essentially grant absolute immunity to government employees for actions taken within the scope of their employment."

How do catch a nutcase dove in your House? - Richard Nixon, 1971


http://youtu.be/4ZmkwqEK9Kk NIXON TAPES: President Nixon & Gerald Ford discuss quieting down "nutcase Congressman" Hale Boggs telling the unvarnished truth? Watergate tape record of White House telephone call.

White House Telephone, April 6, 1971, 5 minute taped phone call.

President Richard Nixon talks with then House Minority Leader (and later President) Gerald Ford about Rep. Hale Boggs, who had recently denounced FBI director J. Edgar Hoover on the floor of the House. Nixon also tells Ford to keep Republican "doves" (on the Vietnam War) under control.

[How to you handle a problem like Maria Dale Boggs?
How do you catch a moonbeam in your hand? nutcase in your house?]

What ever happened to Hale Boggs?

On October 16, 1972 a tragic event occurred in the remote wilderness of Alaska between Anchorage and Juneau, where House Majority Leader--Hale Boggs a democrat from Louisiana and Democrat representative--Nick Begich from Alaska disappeared in an apparent plane crash. Two more people were on board with the politicians that were Russell Brown an aide to Nick Begich and Don Jonz the pilot that perished as well.

Watch "Enemy at the Gates" and see how Khruschev...

stopped the German war machine in its tracks at Stalingrad.

Want to stop the war machine in its tracks? Take the gun grabbers at their words, guns are for hunting.

This is why the country is becoming lawless

Because the highest legal office in the land is used to subvert the law.

Watching each others back...

...because he and his administration is guilty of the very same crime.

Just showing the NEXT

Just showing the NEXT administration how things are done /s

Remember this though....

His day will come, and when it does, he will not be able to bribe or con the Almighty!
He will pay the full price of all his wickedness!

May it be soon!

You keep telling yourself that, just to make yourself feel better. Unfortunately, the only "heaven" that the Bible refers to is simply outer space, the "heavens". And, our creators were just as mortal as we are. Now, the universal law of karma, on the other hand, will ultimately balance out everyone's acts in some way, but to believe that some big, bearded figure is on a cloud meting out judgment of energy (which is all that we are inhabiting these bodies), is absolutely absurd and the stuff of fairy tales.

Way to make an ass of

Way to make an ass of yourself, nidhogge. LOL @ you

freedom of religion?

no need to disgrace others beliefs because they do not match your own

proverbs 20:15
There is gold, and an abundance of jewels;
But the lips of knowledge are a more precious thing.

Nothing to do with beliefs....

...belief implies shutting down your brain, which in turn means absolutely no critical thinking. Blindly taking things at their word without actually looking at what the words truly are saying. Re-Legion is simply a covert way to control that critical thinking part of your brain, to give you a false sense of hope and security that some vengeful, all-powerful Santa Claus on a cloud is going to come and smite all of the evil people in the world.

If people only asked more questions... for example, "God" coming to visit Abraham with a couple of his other "God" buddies (the "Sons of God aka Elohim, yes, there were more than one and the Bible clearly states it), and Abraham making them lunch.

Really people? Omnipotent creator of the Universe with a mind comprised of infinite having a lunch with the finite? C'mon. Those were our creators, the reason we look as we do, but no different than us being the Creators of the Liger (Lion/Tiger hybrid) or Geep (Goat/Sheep hybrid). If you want to actually learn something instead if blindly believing AS YOU ARE TOLD TO from the day you are born (wonder why that is?) then, start here:

Then move on to the "Terra Papers" and watch some of Robert Morningsky's seminars. If that doesn't put things into perspective for you, then hopefully you'll open up a bit more in your next lifetimes.

agree to disagree...

So freedom of religion means that we all must follow you and abandon our 'beliefs'/religion because of what you claim to be fact? I don't care what you choose to 'believe' or what you see as fact. I can still form my own opinion and and intend to do so. Also, just because I believe in God doesn't mean I blindly follow anyone or that I am even part of a church. Sounds to me like you are the one shutting off your brain. I am so sorry dictator nidhogge for being wrong. I will be submissive to your authority since you are all-knowing.

"I am not a crook." - Richard M. Nixon, Checkers Speech.


http://youtu.be/S4UEv_jjPL0 Part I (6 minutes live broadcast recording) of II. Checkers was his pet dog was a gift. Delivered and broadcast live on television 23 September 1952.

My Fellow Americans,

I come before you tonight as a candidate for the Vice Presidency and as a man whose honesty and -- % integrity has been questioned... [Also see Part II (transcript linked below).

I have a theory, too, that the best and only answer to a smear or to an honest misunderstanding of the facts is to tell the truth. And that's why I'm here tonight. I want to tell you my side of the case. I'm sure that you have read the charge, and you've heard it, that I, Senator Nixon, took $18,000 from a group of my supporters.

Now, was that wrong? And let me say that it was wrong. I'm saying, incidentally, that it was wrong, not just illegal, because it isn't a question of whether it was legal or illegal, that isn't enough. The question is, was it morally wrong? I say that it was morally wrong -- if any of that $18,000 went to Senator Nixon, for my personal use...

Checkers speech text. Includes: $15,000 senator salary; $41,000 house in Washington DC; house in Whittier, California which cost $13,000 and on which we owe $3,000. My folks are living there at the present time....
