"It's a straightforward case. There are hundreds of declassified pages that have shed light on how Bush authorized the CIA secret detention program. ... He writes in his book that when he was asked by the CIA if he would authorize them to proceed to waterboarding of a detainee, he replied, 'Damn right, I do.' The detainee was subsequently waterboarded 183 times in one month."
-- Claire Tixeire, jurist and legal researcher for the Center for Constitutional Rights, on how Bush can be tried when he travels to any of the signatory countries obligated to prosecute any individual suspected of committing torture, under the terms of the U.N. Convention Against Torture

Interview with Phyllis Bennis, director of the New Internationalism Project at the Institute for Policy Studies, conducted by Scott Harris
After 18 days of determined anti-regime protest across Egypt, it was the nation's military that played a decisive role in forcing President Mubarak to relinquish his 30-year hold on power, when his resignation was announced on Feb. 11. Although the leaders of Egypt's popular uprising expressed faith in the military to support the people over the Mubarak government, it was this same army which served as a linchpin in propping up the one-party state for three decades.

Interview with Claire Tixeire, jurist and legal researcher with the Center for Constitutional Rights, conducted by Scott Harris
Although George W. Bush has been out of office since January 2009, human rights groups in America and around the world are working to hold the former U.S. president accountable for what many international law scholars believe to be human rights abuses and war crimes. Two torture victims had planned to file criminal complaints in Geneva Switzerland on behalf of the U.S.-based Center for Constitutional Rights and the Berlin-based European Center for Constitutional and Human Rights on Feb. 7, naming President Bush as responsible for authorizing their torture, including waterboarding, while in U.S. custody. The filing of the complaints was to coincide with Bush's scheduled trip to Switzerland on Feb. 12, as Swiss law requires that a person being charged with torture must be present in the country before an investigation can be opened. However, at the last moment, the former president cancelled his trip to Switzerland, presumably due to the legal case being filed against him. Story continues
