general taguba accuses white house of war crimes

Anthony Taguba, the retired two-star general who led an Army investigation into the horrific detainee abuse at Abu Ghraib, has accused the Bush administration of war crimes and is calling for accountability: Taguba: Bush administration tortured detainees, 'committed war crimes'.

In his 2004 report on Abu Ghraib, Taguba concluded that "numerous incidents of sadistic, blatant, and wanton criminal abuses were inflicted on several detainees." He called the abuse "systemic and illegal." He was then rewarded for his honesty by being forced into retirement.

Now, in the preface to a Physicians for Human Rights study of 11 former detainees who were apparently tortured by US military personnel and later released, Taguba writes that "there is no longer any doubt as to whether the current administration has committed war crimes. The only question that remains to be answered is whether those who ordered the use of torture will be held to account."

That's right, suckas. The Taguba is back with some brand new flava. He's talking about war crimes, and he's talking about the Bush administration—George W., Cheney, White House, Pentagon and Justice Department lawyers. War crimes, suckas. More here: Retired Gen. Taguba: Bush Administration Committed "War Crimes" And here: General Accuses WH of War Crimes.
