Leahy's Truth Commission that doesn't lead to assigning a Special Prosecutor is bound to lead to immunity for Bush and the orchestrators of the Bush Administration���s crimes.
 
The truth is already largely known, by the public, the media and Congress. Numerous Congressional hearings have already been held (remember last July Conyers' hearing on the Imperial Presidency?) abounding with damning testimony, and yet...
 
nothing.
 
We don't need any more dancing around the truth.  We need action.  Nothing short of assigning a Special Prosecutor will do it.  That's my first preference, and I'm not going to stop pressing for it.  But, I also recognize that the Obama Administration would probably have not stomach for an actual prosecution.  And therein lies the reason for pressing the UN. 
 
Look, I know the UN is enormously flawed, and our cooperation with it have done damage.  After all, it took an international community to conduct the Nuremburg Trials?  There comes a time when the international community needs take action against a rogue government. And since the US is ignoring international and it's own laws and Constitution, it is behaving like a rogue nation.

I don't believe a lot of users in this mailing list particularly care for the UN or our countries involvement with them. In fact, we went to war and killed under an UN order in Kosavo under Bill Clinton, am I correct?

I would rather see the Truth Commission by VT Senator Lehey personally.

The UN is already poised to prosecute the Bush Adminstration.  Scroll down for the link to sign.
 
On March 8, 2007 the Petition to the UN General Assembly was submitted to the former President of the UN General Assembly. The current president of the UN General Assembly Miguel d'Escoto Brockmann has indicated that Bush should be put on trial:

���If the real justice is in order, people like George Bush who are committing crimes throughout the world should be put on trial. (March 8, 2009).���
It would be far better if we prosecuted Bush & co. in the United States before the International community steps in.  The Obama Adminsitration needs to be savvy to this.  If Attorney General Holden fails to assign a Special Prosecutor to proceed with indictment for the crimes of the Bush Adminsitration, it will look very bad for the Obama Adminsitration once the UN begins its trial.

The Bush Regime must be judged by an International Tribunal set up by the UN General Assembly ��� Joan Russow, PhD, Global Compliance Research Project

In Canada, on March 17, rather than arresting Bush as a war criminal, the police arrested citizens calling for Bush to be put on trial.

While the numerous campaigns to impeach Bush have unfortunately been unsuccessful, and while attempts have been made to arrest Bush under various National laws has, up to this point failed, the Bush regime still must be judged, by the international community, for war crimes, crimes against the peace, and crimes against humanity. A Petition to UN General Assembly to set up International Tribunal to try the Bush regime has been circulated widely. Previously, on March 8, 2007 on International Women���s day, the Petition to the UN General Assembly was submitted, in the six UN official languages, to the former President of the UN General Assembly. The current president of the UN General Assembly Miguel d'Escoto Brockmann has indicated that Bush should be put on trial:

���If the real justice is in order, people like George Bush who are committing crimes throughout the world should be put on trial. (March 8, 2009).���

Over the years, the United States has supported the setting up, by the United Nations, of tribunals to judge leaders of other states. To avoid, the perception of Bias, the United Nations General Assembly must be prepared to invoke Article 22 of the Charter of the United Nations, to set up an International Tribunal to try the Bush Regime. No state or state leader is above the rule of international law, particularly those states justifying aggression on the grounds of self-defence, under Article 51 of the UN Charter, or of preventive/pre-emptive aggression.


On March 8, 2007 on International Women���s day, the following Petition to the UN General Assembly was submitted, in the UN official languages, to the President of the UN General Assembly. During the week of March 5-9, the petition was discussed with representatives of delegations or NGOs from over seventy member states of the United Nations, and it was distributed widely. Prior to March 5, the petition, in the UN official languages, was personally sent in the appropriate language to Ambassadors at the UN missions in New York.


The petition in English, French and Spanish follows:

ENGLISH PETITION TO THE UN GENERAL ASSEMBLY TO SET UP AN INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL TRIBUNAL TO TRY PRESIDENT GEORGE BUSH, VICE-PRESIDENT DICK CHENEY, FORMER SECRETARY OF DEFENSE DONALD RUMSFELD, SECRETARY OF STATE CONDOLEEZZA RICE, AND ATTORNEY GENERAL ALBERTO GONZALES

1. The U.N. General Assembly has the authority to set up such a tribunal by a majority vote as a ���subsidiary organ��� under U.N. Charter Article 22.
2. The United States has supported the U.N. Security Council setting up Tribunals against other state leaders, so as a matter of law it is unobjectionable.
3. The Bush Regime is guilty of Crimes Against Peace, as defined by the Nuremberg Charter (1945), the Nuremberg Judgment (1946), and the Nuremberg Principles (1950), and as codified by U.S. Army Field Manual 27-10 (1956) paragraph 498.
4. The purpose of the ICTU (International Criminal Tribunal against the United States under the Bush regime) would be to investigate and prosecute United States regime under George W. Bush for war crimes, crimes against humanity and against the Peoples of Iraq
5. The establishment of ICTU would provide some small degree of justice to the victims of U.S. war crimes, crimes against humanity and against the Peoples of Iraq
6. Furthermore, the establishment of ICTU by the U.N. General Assembly would serve as a deterrent effect upon U.S. leaders, and members of Congress as well as top generals that they will be prosecuted for further infliction of international crimes against Iraq, Afghanistan and other states.
7. Without such a deterrent, the U.S. administration along with the U.S. Congress, and their allies might be continue to be prepared to attack other states
[* Since the USA has refused to become a party to the Rome Statute for the International Criminal Court, this is the only effective legal redress the rest of the world has against US Officials.]



This petition should be sent to president or prime minister of your state

ESPANOL

PETICI��N A LA ASAMBLEA GENERAL DE LAS NACIONES UNIDAS PARA ESTABLECER UN TRIBUNAL INTERNACIONAL CRIMINAL PARA LLEVAR A JUICIO A GEORGE W. BUSH, PRESIDENTE; DICK CHENEY, VICE-PRESIDENTE; DONALD RUMSFELD, EX SECRETARIO DE DEFENSA; CONDOLEEZZA RICE, SECRETARIA DE ESTADO; Y, ALBERTO GONZALES, FISCAL GENERAL.

1. La Asamblea General de las Naciones Unidas tiene la autoridad de establecer dicho tribunal por un voto en mayor��a como un "��rgano subsidiario" bajo la carta de las Naciones Unidas, art��culo 22.
2. Como los estados unidos han supportado otros tribunales contra otros estados, por tanto, es irrefutable como materia de ley.
3. Al Estatuto del ICTU debe agreg��rsele el crimen adicional de Cr��men Contra la Paz, tal como est�� definido en la Carta de Nurenberg (1945), el Juicio de Nurenberg (1946) y los Principio de Nurenberg (1950), y tal como est�� contemplado en el Manual de Campo 27-10 de la Armada de los Estados Unidos (1956) en su par��grafo 498.
4. El prop��sito del Tribunal Criminal Internacional contra los Estados Unidos bajo el r��gimen de George W. Bush (ICTU por sus siglas en ingl��s) ser��a el investigar y llevar a juicio al Gobierno de los Estados Unidos por sus cr��menes de guerra, cr��menes contra la humanidad y contra de la poblaci��n de Irak
5. El establecimiento del ICTU proveer��a alg��n grado de justicia a las v��ctimas de los cr��menes de guerra perpetrados por los Estados Unidos, los cr��menes contra la humanidad y econtra la poblaci��n de Irak
6. Adicionalmente, el establecimiento del ICTU por la Asamblea General de la ONU servir��a de escarmiento a los actuales l��deres de los Estados Unidos, que junto a miembros del Congreso y generales al mando, y otros estados estar��an al tanto de que ser��an juzgados por su recurrente perpetraci��n de cr��menes internacionales
7. Sin tal escarmiento, la administraci��n de los Estados Unidos junto con su Congreso puede y otros estados estar incitada a perpetrar ataques contra otros pa��ses

* Como los Estados Unidos de Am��rica rechaz�� ser parte del Estatuto de Roma para la Corte Internacional, esta es la ��nica v��a legal que el resto del mundo tiene para corregir las acciones de los oficiales de los Estados Unidos



Esta petici��n debe ser enviado a sus estados

P��TITION DESTIN��E �� L���ASSEMBL��E G��N��RALE DES NATIONS UNIES POUR L���INSTAURATION D���UN TRIBUNAL P��NAL INTERNATIONAL VISANT �� INSTRUIRE LE PROC��S DU PR��SIDENT GEORGE BUSH, DU VICE-PR��SIDENT DICK CHENEY, L���ANCIEN SECR��TAIRE �� LA D��FENSE DONALD RUMSFELD, DE LA SECR��TAIRE D�����TAT CONDOLEEZZA RICE ET DU PROCUREUR G��N��RAL ALBERTO GONZALES.

1. Selon l���article 22 de la Charte des Nations Unies, l���Assembl��e g��n��rale peut cr��er, suivant un vote majoritaire, les organes subsidiaires qu'elle juge n��cessaires �� l'exercice de ses fonctions.

2. Como les ��tats-Unis ont donn�� leur appui par tribual pour juger autres etats, au sens de la loi, on ne peut s���objecter �� ce Tribunal.

3. Il faudrait ajouter au statut du TPIE un crime contre la paix, tel que celui-ci est d��fini par la Charte de Nuremberg (1945), par le Jugement de Nuremberg (1946), par les Principes de Nuremberg (1950) et l���article 27-10, paragraphe 498 de l���US Army Field Manual (1956).

4. Le but du Tribunal p��nal international contre les ��tats-Unis sous l���administration Bush (TPIE) serait d���enqu��ter sur les crimes de guerre, les crimes contre l���humanit�� et le contre les peuples d���Irak et de les traduire en justice

5. La cr��ation d���un TPIE rendrait �� tr��s petite ��chelle ��� justice aux victimes des crimes de guerre, des crimes contre l���humanit�� et des g��nocides perp��tr��s par les Am��ricains contre les peuples d���Irak

6. De plus, la cr��ation d���un TPIE par l���Assembl��e g��n��rale des Nations Unies aurait un effet dissuasif �� l�����gard des dirigeants am��ricains, y les membres du Congr��s ainsi que les hauts g��n��raux, et aussi autres etats; ils sauront qu���ils pourraient ��tre jug��s s���ils commettent d���autres crimes en autres pays.

7. Sans un tel effet dissuasif, l���administration am��ricaine de concert avec le Congr��s, et autres etats pourraint se sentir autoris��s �� attaquer d���autres ��tats


* ��tant donn�� le refus des ��tats-Unis d���Am��rique de devenir membres du Statut de Rome de la cour p��nale internationale, la cr��ation d���un TPIE constitue l���unique recours l��gal et efficace que d��tient le reste du monde contre les dirigeants am��ricains.

Pri��re de faire parvenir un exemplaire au Pr��sident ou Premier ministre de votre pays.
