War Crimes Charges?

I suppose when all is said and done that if we're going to state, repeatedly and correctly, that turning over prisoners to torturers is aiding and abetting war crimes, then we're going to have to ensure that we do everything in our power to see that justice is done.

Personally, I think that the politicians who put our soldiers in the situation where they had no choice but to hand over their prisoners to the Karzai government or the Americans are the ones who should face the charges.

I'm wondering if any of the right-wingers who bewail the breakdown of the "rule of law" in Caledonia will assist us in pursuing this far greater example of criminality?

We have to start with a parliamentary enquiry looking into what crimes were committed and who is responsible. If that fails to happen then I believe we turn to the International Criminal Court.
