First off, we have Richard Clarke, the nation’s top counterterrorism official under former Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, accusing Bush and former Vice President Dick Cheney of committing war crimes in their 2003 invasion of Iraq. (At one point, Cheney even tried to throw Bush under the bus!) Activists in Europe and around the world have been calling for Bush’s prosecution for years.
There is also the always looming question of what exactly Bush knew about the 9/11 attacks before they happened. Without a doubt, it seems certain that the Bush administration was involved (at the least) in covering up sources of financing for the attacks. This remains one of the most heinous crimes to be allowed (and forgotten) by the American people.
For many activists growing up in the Age of Obama, the crimes of Bush might not be fresh in your mind, but rest assured, Baby Bush is a criminal. Opposition to him and the Iraq War sparked a large Anti-War movement in the early 2000’s. (A movement that was subsequently dismantled once Obama came to power.)
