International Court Expanding To Make Room For Bush Officials
The Hague, Netherlands - Officials of the International War Crimes Tribunal announced today that plans are in place to increase the ability of the Tribunal to house and process the large influx of inmates they expect to receive when members of the Bush administration are charged and extradited for numerous violations of international law including many provisions of the Geneva Conventions which relate to torture and the treatment of prisoners.
Chief Prosecutor of the Tribunal Jurgen Laenen said that "unlike the Bush administration we will follow all international laws. President Bush, Vice President Cheney and other members of the Bush administration will find that they will be humanely housed in eight by ten foot cells where they will have access to attorneys and a public trial. They will not be waterboarded or tortured in any other way because that is the mark of criminals in totalitarian regimes and has no bearing in any system that claims to be just."
There was no immediate reaction from the White House to this announcement.
