Follow-Up on Indictment-ville

I made a post a few days ago outlining a few of the people i've been thinking may be in trouble. Others have since asked me (here and privately) who i've heard will be facing indictments. below is something i cought earlier in the week but just now found in print (with a very roundabout link--sorry). Anyway, the scuttlebutt goes:

(by Larry C. Johnson)

Had lunch today with a person who has a direct tie to one of the folks facing indictment in the Plame affair. There are 22 files that Fitzgerald is looking at for potential indictment . These include Stephen Hadley, Karl Rove, Lewis Libby, Dick Cheney, and Mary Matalin (there are others of course). Hadley has told friends he expects to be indicted. No wonder folks are nervous at the White House.
NOTE that there is a possibility of indictments of 22 people. TWENTY TWO!! if 22 bush administration people are indicted, this presidency will implode. i don't see THAT much happening, but that's just because i don't believe in hubris THAT much.

German Court decides that Iraq War is violating the law of nations.

A major of the german armed forces refused to follow order issued from the german secretary of defense to give logistic support to US troops. His superior demoted him for not following the orders. He filed a law suit against his and one of Germanys highest courts said:

It was not a refusal to obey orders, it was a decission based on his conscience because the war in Iraq is a illegal attack war, this means:
The war in iraq is basically on the same level with the illegal attack war Nazi Germany started in 1939 against Poland.

The court explicitly said: That this war in Iraq is illegal and against international law.

This means Bush and Chenney are War Criminals.

I don't believe they're war criminals. just criminals that'd do anything for the war they wanted.

Well - starting a illegal attack war means you are a war criminal. That is why they hung Keidel, a General of the Wehrmacht , 1947 in N├╝rnberg - because he led a illegal attack war.

The definition is quite clear.
