This is good news, but will it actually get anywhere?
Read more here: http://truthyism.com/priceless-irony-la ... ring-date/Last summer, Inder Comar, Esq. filed a lawsuit against the Bush Administration on behalf of Iraqi refugee plaintiff Sundus Shaker Saleh. It is a noble attempt to hold the Bush Administration accountable for war crimes and a case that Quiet Mike has been following from the beginning.
Earlier this year, the Department of Justice, who is defending the six Bush Administration officials, responded to the lawsuit by requesting that the case be dismissed. The Bush tribe is claiming that the planning of the war occurred within the scope of their employment and therefore they have immunity.
Rather than dismissing the case, the Judge asked for additional information. So Mr. Comar filed a 2nd amended complaint back in June.

This Comar dude is pretty smart. He's calling them on the hypocrisy of the above statement.The Bush tribe is claiming that the planning of the war occurred within the scope of their employment and therefore they have immunity.
Read this, he makes a good point.
The first argument he made was something called judicial estoppel. It prevents a party from taking a position in a case which is contrary to a position they have taken in earlier legal proceedings. In this case, Comar used the Nuremburg Trials as an example.
The Nuremburg Trials, which the United States views as legitimate, held Nazi leaders accountable for their acts of aggression. Comar held that judicial estoppel dictates the Bush Administration and DOJ canâ€™t argue that leaders arenâ€™t accountable for acts of aggression because it runs contrary to the USâ€™s position at Nuremburg.
The second point that was made referred to the Augusto Pinochet trial. In 1999, British Lawyers determined that Pinochet did not have immunity for certain acts he committed while in office such as torture and other violations of international law. These Brits held that Pinochet was not immune because Chile had signed the convention against torture.
In light of the treaties and charters that the United States has signed, Comar stated that the defence canâ€™t now claim that acts of aggression are above a leaderâ€™s authority. In this case, the Bush Administration.
