Speaking the Unspeakable: Is The Bush Administration Guilty of War Crimes and Crimes Against Humanity?

The International Commission of Inquiry on Crimes Against Humanity by the Bush Administration (http://www.bushcommission.org) held inquiry sessions in October and januarty to document the evidence on wars of aggression, detention, and torture, destruction of the global environment, sabotage of global health programs and the abandonment of New Orleans and has found that the Bush Administration GUILTY of war crimes and crimes against humanity. Come hear:

Ray McGovern - a retired CIA analyst where he worked for 27 years for presidential administrations from JFK to George Bush. In 2003, together with many other prominent former CIA agents, McGovern founded Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Santiy (VIPS). 2 weeks ago, Ray marched into Congress with 15 others wearing orange jumpsuits similiar to those worn by detainees at Guantananmo Bay to deliver the following message, "As a matter of conscience, I am returing the Intelligence Commendation Award medallion given me for "especially commendable service" during my 27 year career in CIA. The issue is torture, which inhabits the same category as rape and slavery, intriscially evil. I do not wish to be associated, however remotely, with an agency engaged in torture."

Larry Everest - journalist and author of Oil, Power & Empire: Iraq and the US Global Agenda.
