Should Bush be charged with war crimes? think so []. They point to comments made by Donald Rumsfeld about the Geneva Convention, saying it is illegal for countries to use prisoners of war as props for television. And on their site, they have a picture of "The American Taliban" John Walker Lindh, tied up and humiliated by U.S. forces in Afghanistan. This raises a good point, also raised by my friend Ralph. What about Jose Padilla [also thought to be "John Doe 2" from Oklahoma City bombing fame]? Padilla is an American, not a foriegner, and is being held without being charged and without being allowed to meet with his attorney. This is unconstitutional and grounds, in Ralph's mind, for impeachment.
