Bush Seeks Retroactive Immunity for Violating War Crimes Act



This is the headline above an article by Elizabeth Holtzman, the former prosecutor who's been angling for Bush's impeachment.

Here's the case she makes:

"Thirty-two years ago, President Gerald Ford created a political firestorm by pardoning former president Richard Nixon of all crimes he may have committed in Watergate - and lost his election as a result. Now, President Bush, to avoid a similar public outcry, is quietly trying to pardon himself of any crimes connected with the torture and mistreatment of US detainees."

She's got a point.
