The Atheist Fag, founder of this blog and author of this post, has created a new website devoted specifically to issues surrounding demand for and likelihood of war crimes trials being conducted for the criminals in the Bush Administration.
The site is laid out like a printed newspaper, with headlines, articles on pages, and teasers in the columns.
Breaking away from the newspaper analogy there are also a number of pages containing filtered YouTube video selections based on subjects related to torture and the US concentration camp in Guantanamo Cuba.
Each of the most famous war criminals in the Bush Administration has their own category for news stories, you’ll find all of your favorite malicious evildoers like George Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and Condoleeza Rice.
Articles shown on the site are updated by an automated process every two hours, so you’ll be able to track the progress of justice if and when any of these criminals are held responsible for their crimes.
Be the first on your block to visit War Crimes Trials, and stop back often to check on the progress of Truth, Justice and the American Way.

For some time the US government, acting on the orders of Our Glorious Christian Leader, has been operating a concentration camp in Cuba. We call the US detention center a concentration camp because it is consistent with the definition of the term.
a camp where non-combatants of a district are accommodated, such as those instituted by Lord Kitchener during the South African war of 1899-1902; one for the internment of political prisoners, foreign nationals, etc., esp. as organized by the Nazi regime in Germany before and during the war of 1939-45.
Today an innocent man arrested without due cause was released. Sami al-Hajj had been held prisoner by US forces for 6 years without ever being charged with any crime. Before he was illegally detained by imperialist invaders he was working as a photographer for Al Jazeera.
During the first year he was held in the US concentration camp without being charged with any crime. He had no rights according to Our Glorious Christian Leader.
During the second year he was held in the US concentration camp without being charged with any crime. He had no rights according to Darth Cheney.
During the third year he was held in the US concentration camp without being charged with any crime. He had no rights according to Donald “Death Star” Rumsfeld.
During the fourth year he was held in the US concentration camp without being charged with any crime. He had no rights according to Co-Conspirator Rice.
During the fifth year he was held in the US concentration camp without being charged with any crime. He had no rights according to Alberto “Torture Time” Gonzales.
During the sixth year he was released from the US concentration camp without being charged with any crime. Nobody has apologized for holding him prisoner for 6 years with no charges.
We do not know how often he was tortured, but we do know who authorized the torture.
Since he was never charged with any crime at all, not even littering, what shall we presume about his guilt or innocence? Is there any presumption to be made about a person’s guilt or innocence? How about if a person has not only never been convicted of a crime, suppose they have never even been charged with a crime – are they still guilty?

Official US Government policy approving of the use of torture justifies the immoral, illegal, brutal, inhumane, demeaning, fascist behavior of Our Glorious Christian Leader by pretending that Our Glorious Christian Leader is not subject to laws made by mere international treaties signed by the USA. The Pentagon is covering their ass.
The memo was written by John Yoo, who was then deputy assistant attorney general for the Office of Legal Counsel under Alberto “Torture Time” Gonzales, a primary enabler of faith-based torture initiatives.
While the so-called legal opinion does not actually say that Our Glorious Christian Leader answers directly to God, it has been widely reported that God told Our Glorious Christian Leader to engage in an illegal conspiracy to promote a war of aggression based on a pack of lies.
Of course since Jesus H. Christ told Our Glorious Christian Leader that he should invade Iraq this means he was delegating authority, and with authority directly from his Imaginary Bearded Sky Daddy, it seems obvious that Our Glorious Christian Leader should not be subject to the laws of mere mortals. Praise Him!

A former guard at the US Concentration Camp in Guantanamo Bay has testified about the illegal, immoral, unethical, disgraceful, shameful treatment of prisoners – as authorized by Our Glorious Christian Leader. Christopher Arent was 17 when he joined the National Guard.
He became very quickly discouraged when he saw the immoral deeds ordered by the first war criminal President in US history.
“Inside the interrogation room, it would be 10 to 20 degrees [F.] with loud music playing. And there would be the detainee shackled to the floor by his hands and feet with nothing to sit on, with loud music playing in the freezing cold.”
This is evil. Pure evil. Raw evil. The kind of evil that only a person as low as Darth Cheney would enjoy. And George W. Criminal likes to tell us what a great fucking Christian he is, how he prays to Jeebus, and how Jeebus tells him to invade perfectly innocent nations based on a pack of lies.
Another veteran of the US torture apparatus, former sergeant Domingo Rosas, says that he was assigned to torture prisoners by preventing them from sitting down, laying down, getting any sleep. He witnessed other US soldiers using other torture techniques approved by Our Glorious Christian Leader, the official spokesperson for American Christianity to the rest of the world.
“I witnessed one detainee rolling around in the mud being kicked again and again,” he said. “I saw the interrogator pouring water on his face, waterboarding him. And another detainee was standing there with a bag over his head and was forced to carry a huge rock until he couldn’t do it anymore and collapsed. That image seared itself into my mind’s eye and I can’t forget it. I won’t forget it.”
These are the actions authorized by Our Glorious Christian Leader, on the advice of Donald “Death Star” Rumsfeld, with cheerleading provided by Darth Cheney, and publicity handled by by Co-Conspirator Rice and Once Respectable Powell, press releases by Rupert Murdoch.

In the fine tradition of compassionate conservatives that fundamentally follow Jeebus, Our Glorious Christian Leader has vetoed a bill that would have outlawed torture. Which bills would Jeebus veto? Would Jeebus be disappointed if torture was illegal? Or does Jeebus only hate torture if the person doing the torture is a foreigner?
We all agree that it is morally wrong for our enemies to torture their prisoners. The US Government has often criticized the practice of torture as conducted by small dictatorships. Among the many reasons often used as a la carte rationalizations of the illegal invasion of Iraq is the fact that Saddam Hussein was torturing his own citizens. Any civilized nation would naturally reserve torture for foreigners.
Maybe Our Glorious Christian Leader would be willing to sign a bill that outlaws torturing just Americans, but not foreigners. Of course, on the other hand, maybe he would veto such a bill too.
Usually when Our Glorious Christian Leader vetoes a bill that would outlaw torture he says stuff like “We don’t torture” which is probably just as true as everything else that he says on the subject. Still, I’m not sure if he used that line this time. I’m still waiting to hear him say “We don’t torture, that’s why we vetoed this bill. Because it would outlaw torture. We don’t torture, but this bill would interfere with our ability to collect information.”
Our President who frequently says we don’t torture did say
“The bill Congress sent me would take away one of the most valuable tools in the war on terror”
Only the Party of Jesus is ready to defend your right to be tortured, and they’ll torture you if they have to in order to Protect Freedom™!
Maybe we need a faith-based torture program, we could ask people how much they love Jeebus now as we increase their height, or give them swimming lessons while they are laying on their backs. We could call the new faith-based torture program some snappy name, like the Spanish Questioning or the Spanish Enhanced Interrogation Technique. I hear they have lots of faith-based interview technique training manuals in Rome at that little nation state with the guys in dresses.
We could have a new federal agency that handles “interviews”, the BEI (Bureau of Enhanced Interrogations). Why it’s a whole new industry.
How much safer does Our Glorious Christian Leader make you feel?
Speaking to a group of British Members of Parliament, Iranian government official Mohsen Yahyavi said that gays deserve to be executed or tortured and possibly both. He did not say how hot he thought lesbian porn was, however.
Mohsen Yahyavi is the highest-ranked politician to admit that Iran believes in the death penalty for homosexuality after a spate of reports that gay youths were being hanged.
President Ahmadinejad, questioned by students in New York two months ago about the executions, dodged the issue by suggesting that there were no gays in his country. The sane college students, not afflicted with Fundamentalism, reacted by laughing in his face.
Iran is a perfect example of the extreme danger involved in letting persons afflicted with Fundamentalist religious delusions have political power over normal human beings. No more than 15 minutes study of history is required to understand that the evil of any particular government is directly proportional to the influence of the local fairy-tale based religion on that government.
It is little wonder that Iran stands apart from the civilized world. Their brutal suppression of women, pious murder of homosexuals, and ridiculous laws based on idiotic superstitions set them squarely in the middle of the 14th century. Yet they have the technological means to spread their insanity beyond their borders.
Christians do owe a debt of gratitude to Islam. Were it not for Islam Christianity would be the dumbest religion in the world.
The Oxford Research Group has released a study which finds what is obviously true, the US and UK invasion of Iraq based on a pack of lies has done more to promote terr’ism than to stop it. Our first reaction was to say “Well DUH!”
Fighting terr’ism is the fourth or fifth lie that has been used to justify the invasion, first it was nukular weapons made with yellow cake lies, then it was WMD (we know exactly where they are), then it was Saddam is torturing people (the height of irony), then it was to liberate the people (from the yoke of local government). As each lie has been demonstrated to be a complete fabrication with no basis in fact whatsoever, the warmongers have produced new lies along with claims that the most current lie is really, really the reason and no kidding this time.
As each new lie comes along, the previous lie is vehemently denied. Despite the fact that the lies have been well documented, the liars continue to deny their lies, and the lies keep shifting with the tides. Of course you can only impeach a President for lying about a blow job. Lies that result in hundreds of thousands of deaths and dismemberments are OK if they are told to generate corporate revenue.
Any day now we expect to hear about headlines on Fox News to the effect that the gummint could not tell us for fear of panic in the streets, but really we had to invade Iraq because Saddam bin Laden was planning an invasion with help from his Martian allies. Maybe the Martian spaceships were used to get all of the WMDs out of Iraq just as our troops rolled in.
Would it be possible to fight a war on chilly? Not the nation Chile, the sensation of being too cold. If we were to start a war on chilly, how could chilly surrender thus allowing the war to end?
The War on Terror is really a War on Terra, the planet. Because as Iraq has clearly demonstrated military might can not be used to stop terr’ism. In order to stop the terr’ism with our current techniques we would have to kill the whole planet – thus the name War on Terra.
It has been demonstrated that when a far-away nation invades a country based on a pack of lies and kills thousands and thousands of people who had the nerve to stay in their own country, the survivors are not always universally grateful. Indeed, 100% of the terr’ism in Iraq today is caused by the US and UK invasion. Invading more will make it worse. Sending more soldiers will make it worse. Killing more locals will make it worse. Continuing the lies about why we invaded in the first place will make it worse. Peace, oddly enough, often results in a diminished level of violence. Who knew?
A patriotic US citizen named Tony Lagouranis has been speaking out about the widespread practice of torturing prisoners of war in Iraq, admitting that he conducted torture sessions with the blessings of Alberto “Torture Time” Gonzales legal opinions that claimed Our Glorious Christian Leader is entitled to authorize torture.
Serving in both the notorious Abu Ghraib prison as well as at Al Asad Airfield, Lagouranis, who is now working as a bouncer at a Chicago bar, says that the practices used by US forces are in fact torture despite the pretend justification from America’s most infamous attorney. Among the techniques he freely admits are used by US Forces are:
Meanwhile, back in the US, Republican-controlled Fox TV was glorifying the illegal and immoral practice of torturing people on the pure propaganda TV series 24.
This pro-torture propagandizing of the American sheeple has not escaped the critical attention of foreign media outlets that are not controlled by US corporations, as is evidenced in Australia, Italy, Malaysia, France, South Africa, and Canada.
Have you heard about this story on Fox News? We did not think so. We first saw the story on UnFox News – it’s not a propaganda arm of the Republican Party.
