Review

"I highly recommend, both for reading and for sending to Eric Holder, George W. Bush: War Criminal? The Bush Administration's Liability for 269 War CrimeS≪/i> by Michael Haas. This is a phenomenal work…"

www.opednews.com



"In a straightforward and relatively non-legalistic manner, Haas (emeritus, political science, U. of Hawaii) presents the evidence that the administration of George W. Bush committed 269 war crimes in the prosecution of its wars and occupations. His approach is to systematically go through the Geneva Conventions and all the other relevant instruments of the laws of war, quoting the relevant passages of the various treaties and then immediately following up with a brief description of how the Bush administration violated that particular provision. He also offers a brief concluding discussion of how and why the Bush administration should be prosecuted for having committed war crimes."

Reference & Research Book News



"Haas (political science, emeritus, Univ. of Hawaii) is the first author to compile a comprehensive list of alleged war crimes committed by the Bush administration during its global war against international terrorism. Haas's benchmark is the set of Geneva Conventions adopted after World War II, of which the United States was a critical state sponsor. At the least, this work should be read with close scrutiny, given Haas's insistence on the centrality of the rule of law even (or especially) in time of international conflict—an insistence recognized by the U.S. Supreme Court, most notably in Hamdan v. Rumsfeld (2006), in which the Court overturned the Bush administration's system of military commissions. Perhaps most likely to be acknowledged (and even then it's a long shot) is Haas's call for a truth commission to investigate the past deeds of various Bush officials, including the President himself. This work's greatest achievement, however, may be its detailed treatment of the Geneva Conventions and their role in establishing an international regime based on the rule of law, a regime applicable to American law and politics. Highly recommended, especially for serious students of the topics covered.'

Library Journal

Review

"Michael Haas's book on the Bush administration's war crimes is a carefully researched, fact-based assessment of many of the crimes committed by George Bush and his people, both domestically and internationally. America will not find its way again in the world until the Bush administration has been held accountable for them. Haas's identification of these crimes is an important step in advancing that goal."

Format: Hardcover
Based on information supplied in autobiographical and press sources, the book matches events in Afghanistan, Guantánamo, Iraq , and various secret places of detention with provisions in the Geneva Conventions and other international agreements on war crimes. His compilation is the first to cite a comprehensive list of specific war crimes in four categories-illegality of the decision to go to war, misconduct during war, mistreatment of prisoners of war, and misgovernment in the American occupations of Afghanistan and Iraq.

Love it! Really explains how the president committed war crimes and got away with it. How some people live above the law.

All the thousands of killed and maimed should haunt this man who intentionally & carelessly went to war for "unknown" reasons. We as a nation are much poorer for this action.

Format: Hardcover
Author Haas presents a most helpful list of all of the statutes members of the Bush/Cheney administration (or Cheney/Bush administration, depending on which person you think was actually running things) can be charged now with having violated.

As with most of these current works on the rogue nature of our prior administration (the habits of which are now being picked up by the Obama administration, just as so many people had predicted would be the case if congress failed to impeach and remove these miscreants from office and thus put successive administrations on notice that these were "high crimes and misdemeanors," if not downright treason), Haas overlooks the lynch-pin, the ne plus ultra, the sine qua non of this Cheney/Bush administration. Namely, 9/11/2001. Haas assumes that there was "an attack" on the United States (or on the white-elephant, asbestos-laden World Trade Center towers 1, 2 and 7, the heavily fortified Pentagon wall, and, allegedly, a field in Shanksville, PA).

The evidence that the three World Trade Center skyscrapers were taken down with demolition explosives is now pretty conclusive--especially now that fragments of nano-thermite have been recovered from dust at the site--a "high energetic" compound/product
