It's Official: George W. Bush is a War Criminal

On June 29th the US Supreme Court utterly destroyed The Bush administration's case for opting out of the Geneva convention and by extension the theory of the War paradigm and the Imperial, or Unitary, Executive.

The inevitable conclusion, particularly from Reagan appointee Justice Kennedy's written decision is that the Bush Administration is guilty of war crimes.

Don't hold your breath waiting for Attorney General Alberto Gonzales to file charges, he helped create the legal edifice the Supreme Court demolished last Thursday. Short of the highly unlikely prospect of a Special Prosecutor like Patrick Fitzgerald deciding to go after Bush or a Democrat takeover in November - and even then the Democrats have already stated they won't pursue impeachment - Bush will face no judgment but that of history.

History's judgment is likely to be severe.
