Should Rumsfeld be tried for War Crimes?

A US General is going to Germany to give evidence that the operation of Abu Garib's torture rooms was directed from Rumsfelled's office, not the work of some soldier fall guys as they have alleged in their cover up. Should we allow Rumsfeld to be extradicted to Germany to face trial before the Nuremburg Tribunals for trial as a war criminal if German courts find sufficient evidence for an indictment?

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

Absolutely. We are a nation based upon the rule of law. If we violated international laws, the responsible parties shall be called to account for thier behavior.

You have violated Sharia law which is universal and should be put to death.

How about putting Rummy and Pat Tillmans's brother in a "thunder-dome" cage match and air it on PBS!

I am ready to move on and not prosecute the ignorant neocons who dug us into this mess. I would however get all the info I could on them regarding their questionable motives and use it against them only if they decide to not play by democratic rules. This of course means there is more than a 50% chance that this will happen.

He was a wrestler, so he too is probably one of they gay republicans... they let him go before he too came out.
