MSNBC's Cenk Uygur Accuses George W. Bush of War Crimes

Former President Bush has taken full responsibility for the decision to waterboard 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed.

CBS News reported:
In a memoir due out Tuesday, Bush makes clear that he personally approved the use of that coercive technique against alleged Sept. 11 plotter Khalid Sheik Mohammed, an admission the human rights experts say could one day have legal consequences for him.

In his book, titled "Decision Points," Bush recounts being asked by the CIA whether it could proceed with waterboarding Mohammed, who Bush said was suspected of knowing about still-pending terrorist plots against the United States. Bush writes that his reply was "Damn right" and states that he would make the same decision again to save lives...

Liberals in the mainstream media are now clamoring 'war crimes.'

Via NewsBusters:
CENK UYGUR, MSNBC contributor: Now that isn't even the most startling part of the book. He also admits to a war crime. He said, when they asked him, "hey, should we waterboard Khalid Sheikh Mohammed?" He admits it. In the book, he says I told them "Damn right." Go ahead and torture him basically.
