Surely the facts have become far too inconvenient to ignore
“GENEVA – A visit former U.S. President George W. Bush planned to make to Switzerland next week has been canceled because of security concerns, after left-wing groups called for mass protests and rights activists proposed legal action against him for allegedly ordering the torture of terrorism suspects.”
“Bush’s spokesman David Sherzer said the two-term president was informed Friday by the United Israel Appeal that his Feb. 12 dinner speech in Geneva had been called off.
“We regret that the speech has been canceled,” Sherzer told The Associated Press in an e-mail Saturday. “President Bush was looking forward to speaking about freedom and offering reflections from his time in office.” “
“Saturday’s edition of Swiss daily Tribune de Geneve quoted the Jewish charity’s lawyer, Robert Equey, as saying the visit was canceled because of the risk that protests by left-wing groups could result in violence.
“The calls to demonstrate were sliding into dangerous terrain,” Equey told the newspaper. “The organizers claimed to be able to maintain order, but warned they could not be held responsible for any outbursts.”
Protest organizers had called for participants to each bring a shoe to the rally outside the lakeside Hotel Wilson — named after Bush’s predecessor Woodrow Wilson — where the dinner was to be held. The shoe was meant to recall the moment an Iraqi journalist threw his footwear at Bush during a news conference in Baghdad in 2008.”
“Equey told Tribune de Geneve that attempts by human rights groups to submit legal complaints against Bush to Swiss prosecutors hadn’t played a part in the decision to cancel the visit.”
Well it’s pretty clear what’s going on here. And I’m not just talking about the Polanski parallels. And this very moment Congressman Car Thief
is planning to launch an “investigation” of the President designed to turn up “dirt” the better to impeach him, as was done (unsuccessfully) with Bill Clinton. Obama could scotch this in a nanosecond were he to Do The Right Thing and indict Dubbya and his entire evil administration for Crimes Against Humanity.
Were he to do so, however, he would face THIS —
Consequently one can only hope for a “slip-up” in which Dubbya could be nabbed, put before the World Court and have his murderous ass served on a silver platter.
Ah, well we can dream, can’t we?
Sing us out, Sammy!
