Bush/Blair Convicted of War Crimes at Tribunal That's Symbolic But Still More Than We've Accomplished

by

George Bush and Tony Blair have been found guilty at the symbolic Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Tribunal of committing "crimes against peace" during the Iraq war. An initiative by Malaysia's former premier Mahathir Mohamad, the ruling came after a two-year investigation and four-day hearing. The tribunal is also expected to later hear torture and war crimes charges against seven others, including Donald Rumsfeld and Dick Cheney.
