Stew and Tom discuss George W. Bush War Crimes Trial on Dec 12th! Send Viral!
Get this information out everywhere! It's being censored by all fake news! George W. Bush is being dragged into court on December 12th for war crimes over the Iraq war! Circuit judges in San Francisco, Susan Graber and Andrew Hurwitz as well as District Court Judge Richard Boulware will hear hear oral arguments in Saleh v. Bush!
“We are pleased that the Ninth Circuit will hear argument. To my knowledge, this is the first time a court will entertain arguments that the Iraq War was illegal under domestic and international law,” Saleh’s attorney D. Inder Comar, legal director at Comar LLP, said. “This is also the first time since World War II that a court is being asked to scrutinize whether the war itself was an illegal act of aggression — a special war crime that was defined at the Nuremberg Trials in 1946.” Comar is handling Saleh’s case pro bono.
Ms. Saleh is also arguing that Bush administration officials knowingly lied to the public by fraudulently tying Hussein to Al Qaida and the threat of weapons of mass destruction. Such misrepresentations would also make them personally liable for their conduct under relevant law.
Ms. Saleh is arguing on appeal that the Defendants should not be immunized. She alleges that the Defendants were acting from personally held convictions that the US should invade Iraq, regardless of any legitimate policy reasons. Specifically, she is pointing to a record of statements made by some of the Defendants in leading neoconservative outlets in which they called for the military overthrow of the Hussein regi....

The Ninth Circuit has not indicated when it will issue a ruling on the appeal.
What is the Chilcot Report?
The Chilcot Report is the final report issued by the Iraq Inquiry, a committee established by the British Government in 2009 to investigate what happened during the run up to the Iraq War. Composed of British “privy counsellors,” the report was released on July 6, 2016 after more than 6 years of investigation, research, and drafting.
Why is the Chilcot Report important to the Saleh v. Bush lawsuit?
The Chilcot Report contains (i) factual conclusions by the privy counsellors about what happened during the run up to the Iraq War, (ii) actual documentation (including written notes between Blair and Bush) that show a plan to go to war in Iraq as early as October 2001, and (iii) statements of international law by distinguished experts who have concluded that the Iraq War was illegal and constituted aggression against Iraq.
What are some of the pieces of evidence submitted to the Ninth Circuit?
These are some of the excerpts that we highlighted for the Ninth Circuit as evidence that the Iraq War was illegal, and that government leaders were not acting within the lawful scope of their employment authority when they planned and executed the Iraq War:
Conclusions of the Iraq Inquiry Committee:
Conclusions of the Iraq Inquiry Committee related to the legal analysis of the British government leading up to the war:
Underlying statements and facts relied on by the Iraq Inquiry Committee
15 January 2010 Statement by Foreign & Commonwealth Office lega... to the Iraq Inquiry Committee
I considered that the use of force against Iraq in March 2003 was contrary to international law. In my opinion, that use of force had not been authorized by the Security Council, and had no other legal basis in international law.
18 January 2010 Statement by Foreign & Commonwealth Office lega... to the Iraq Inquiry Committee
I regarded the invasion of Iraq as illegal, and I therefore did not feel able to continue in my post. I would have been required to support and maintain the Government’s position in international fora. The rules of international law on the use of force by States are at the heart of international law. Collective security, as opposed to unilateral military action, is a central purpose of the Charter of the United Nations. Acting contrary to the Charter, as I perceived the Government to be doing, would have the consequence of damaging the United Kingdom’s reputation as a State committed to the rule of law in international relations and to the United Nations.
12 July 2010 Statement by Carne Ross, First Secretary of the U.K. P... to the Iraq Inquiry Committee
This process of exaggeration was gradual, and proceeded by accretion and editing from document to document, in a way that allowed those participating to convince themselves that they were not engaged in blatant dishonesty. But this process led to highly misleading statements about the UK assessment of the Iraqi threat that were, in their totality, lies.
I have no doubt we need to deal with Saddam. But if we hit Iraq now, we would lose the Arab world, Russia, probably half of the EU …
However, I am sure we can devise a strategy for Saddam deliverable at a later date. My suggestion is, in order to give ourselves space that we say: phase 1 is the military action focused on Afghanistan because it’s there that perpetrators of 11 September hide. Phase 2 is the medium and longer term campaign against terrorism in all its forms. …
(Mr. Blair was apparently discussing with Defendant-Appellee Bush regime change in Iraq just one month after the attacks that took place on September 11, 2001. Mr. Blair’s suggestion for “phase 1” of the U.S.-U.K. strategy on the war on terrorism to first direct military action toward “Afghanistan because it’s there that perpetrators of 11 September hide,” further supports allegations that U.S. officials used an unrelated terrorist attack to execute a pre-existing plan of regime change in Iraq. Mr. Blair then went on to discuss a “phase 2” that would include invading Iraq).
Iraq is a threat because it has WMD capability … But any link to 11 September and AQ [Al Qaeda] is at best very tenuous; and at present international opinion would be reluctant, outside the US/UK, to support immediate military action … So we need a strategy for regime change that builds over time. …
(This note supports allegations that U.S. government leaders were aware that Iraq had no link to the 9/11 attacks or Al Qaeda and support allegations that U.S. government leaders made false statements to the public about the threat Iraq posed, or its connection to Al Qaeda, in order to support a war and satisfy personally-held objectives of regime change that had no legitimate policy underpinning)
I will be with you, whatever …
The Evidence. Again, I have been told the US thinks this unnecessary. But we still need to make the case. If we recapitulate all the WMD evidence; add his attempts to secure nuclear capability; and, as seems possible, add on Al Qaida link, it will be hugely persuasive over here.
(This note confirms that U.S. government official’s intent to invade Iraq was well-formed by July 2002. Mr. Blair’s July 2002 note to George W. Bush observed that U.S. officials thought evidence supporting regime change was “unnecessary” and that an “Al Qaida link” could be simply be tacked onto government messaging in order to sell the war).
Statements by legal experts who have concluded that the Iraq War was illegal
Distinguished members of the legal community in the United Kingdom have also concluded without ambiguity that the war was unlawful.
A second Security Council resolution specifically and unambiguously authorising military action was required. The vague warning of ‘serious consequences’ in resolution 1441 did not suffice, and to interpret resolution 678 as granting the necessary authority was not ‘good faith’ interpretation as required by international law. Without such a resolution, the invasion of Iraq constituted an act of aggression, contrary to Article 2(4) of the UN Charter.
What happens next?
The Department of Justice has indicated that it will oppose the filing of these portions from the Chilcot Report with the Ninth Circuit. We will circulate the DOJ opposition once it has been filed.
Saleh alleges former Bush administration leaders along with George W. Bush himself committed the crime of aggression when they planned and executed the Iraq War, a war crime that was called the "supreme international crime" at the Nuremberg Trials in 1946!
Stew Webb talks about this trial in his latest Intelligence update in the video above. He's heard these judges are not the typical Bush Clinton Crime Syndicate judges that will dismiss the case. We shall soon see! Will George W. Bush finally be rightfully exposed for committing war crimes?
George W. Bush's trial will be live streamed on the Ninth Circuit's Youtube Channel! Everybody is being encouraged to spread this story and watch the Court begin case at 9:00 am Pacific Time one December 12th. The case will likely be heard later in the morning as it is last on the Court's calendar.
Also named in this court case is Richard Cheney, Colin Powell, Condoleezza Rice, Donald Rumsfield and Paul Wolfowitcz as defendants for starting the illegal Iraq War killing more than 500,000 ultimately. This case was originally dismissed in 2014 saying the defendants were immune from further proceedings because of the federal Westfall Act which immunizes former federal officials in civil lawsuits if a court determines they were acting in the legitimate scope of their jobs. Saleh now disputes this immunity saying the planning and waging of a war of aggression against Iraq fell outside the legitimate scope of employment of former President bush and the other defendants! This could get very interesting if Stew's sources are correct and these judges are patriots!
