WHERE: Camp Democracy and delegation to front gates of the White House and the Department of Justice to deliver Verdict

Summary: Larry Everest, author and an organizer of the Commission commented: “The release of the Commission’s verdict comes at a moment when war crimes and crimes against humanity are again front-page news. Last week, Bush acknowledged his administration’s use of torture, rendition, and illegal detention, and argued they should continue. He advocates eviscerating the War Crimes Act to prevent prosecution of his administration. Bush is threatening another illegal war against Iran, and continues to use the attacks of Sept. 11 to justify these criminal actions.”

In this situation, the Bush Crimes Commission argues that people of conscience have a moral responsibility to investigate potential war crimes and crimes against humanity and to condemn them when they take place.
