AlterNet: Rights and Liberties: The Gonzales Indictment

The Gonzales Indictment

By Marjorie Cohn, TruthOut.org. Posted January 19, 2005.

Instead of being confirmed as attorney general, Alberto Gonzales should be indicted for war crimes.

Alberto Gonzales should not be the attorney general of the United States. He should be considered a war criminal and indicted by the attorney general. This is a suggested indictment of Alberto Gonzales for war crimes under Title 18 U.S.C. section 1441, the War Crimes Act.

COUNT I: Application of Geneva Conventions; Definition of Torture

On or about Jan. 25, 2002 through Jan. 16, 2005, Defendant ALBERTO GONZALES, Counsel to George W. Bush, the president of the United States of America, did write, commission and concur in memoranda that advocated conduct by United States military forces, amounting to war crimes under Title 18 U.S.C. section 1441 (The War Crimes Act ).

The War Crimes Act defines as war crimes: grave breaches of the Geneva Conventions, and violations of Article 3 common to the Geneva Conventions."
