Although Rumsfeld was already sued in Germany, his latest indictment in France looks a little more promising. The torturer was in the French capital at the behest of Foreign Policy magazine, but those that have been after him interrupted his plans. It is important to bring this man (among many) to justice for the crimes he committed by authorizing the practice of torture at Abu Ghraib and other sites.
"We've been working on cornering Rumsfeld and getting him indicted somewhere going on three years now," said the Center's president, Michael Ratner. "Four days ago, we got confidential information he was going to be in France."
Joined by activists, attorneys for the human rights groups caught up with Rumsfeld on his way to a breakfast meeting. "He was walking down the street with just one person," said Ratner.
"Around 20 campaigners gave Rumsfeld a rowdy welcome...yelling 'murderer,' waving a banner and trying to push into the building," reports AFP.
"Murderer" is one word for the ex-Secretary, but I would prefer "convicted criminal" much more.
