John Bellinger should be tried as a war criminal

John Bellinger is now traveling through Europe and attempting to rewrite history a common practice for those that were in the Bush administration. Bellinger who was the State Department's point person on Guantanamo was (and most likely still is) an arrogant liar. I do not say that lightly. He is on my list of individuals from the Bush administration that should be tried as war criminals. Bellinger's attempts to rewrite history will not succeed as I and others will be following close behind to set the record straight. I wrote a letter to the International Herald Tribune challenging Bellinger's claims regarding the efforts of the Bush administration to find countries in Europe to help settle detainees that could not return to their home country. The Tribune declined to publish my letter so I share it with all of you.

I applaud the suggestion that Bellinger (and the entire Bush administration) be tried as war criminals. It would be well to pursue the same goal for any administration that refuses to withdraw ALL U.S. forces from occupied Iraq and Afghanistan. Anyone who hesitates to do so is also a war criminal.
