Cashing in on Torture... or a ticket to jail?

"Sell those books, George W, you may need the money for legal fees yet!" - Bill Quigley, Legal Director at the Center for Constitutional Rights

Money - the essential ingredient for Bush's presidential library and privately funded policy institute in Dallas - has been steadily flowing in to the former president's foundation since he left office almost two years ago... The Dallas Morning News reports on George W. Bush book tour  

In [his] memoir... Bush makes clear that he personally approved the use of that coercive technique against alleged Sept. 11 plotter Khalid Sheik Mohammed, an admission the human rights experts say could one day have legal consequences for him.

Bush's admission of guilt exposes the former president to prosecution (waterboarding has been widely confirmed as an act of torture, and not a "policy choice" as the current administration has suggested) and refreshes calls by human rights advocates for war crime accountability of government officials. 

The Indict Bush movement is mobilizing to expose him as the war criminal he is, with protests at book signings and at groundbreaking for the George W. Bush Presidential Center on November 16.
