Fox News Indicted For War Crimes

The Hague, Netherlands - Prosecutors at the International Court in The Hague have released an indictment of Fox News for the role they played in promoting torture and the illegal invasion of Iraq which has led to the deaths of thousands of American soldiers and innocent Iraqis. Named as coconspirators in the complaint are Rupert Murdoch, Roger Ailes, Brit Hume, Bill O'reilly and Sean Hannity

Chief Judge Werner von Spissel of the War Crimes Tribunal said "We did not come to this decision lightly. However, we could not ignore the despicable actions that Fox News took in promoting blatant propaganda and outright lies that have now led to the deaths of thousands of Americans and Iraqis. Furthermore, their actions in cheerleading the use of torture while slandering all critics of the Iraq policy clearly shows that they are not a news organization but a mouthpiece for the policies and goals of the Republican Party. Remember, it is not only those who directly commit crimes against humanity that are open to prosecution. Those who aid and abet these crimes must also answer for their actions."

There was no immediate response from Fox News to the release of the indictment by the International Court but Rupert Murdoch has called for the invasion of The Netherlands on the basis that the International Court in The Hague represents a clear and present danger to members of the Bush administration, their supporters and Republicans everywhere.

I wonder if FOX News, MSNBC and CNN will broadcast the trials of Bush and Cheney from the Hague?
