Iraq War Confidential: The Lies and Crimes of the Bush Administration

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

In this paper it is argued that the G.W. Bush administration perpetrated state crimes and war crimes in its policies and actions concerning Iraq. More specifically, it is maintained that the 2003 invasion of Iraq constituted state crime as defined by scholars, particularly Kramer, Michalowski and Rothe, 2005. In addition, the author provides evidence that the invasion and occupation of Iraq were war crimes in violation of international criminal law as established by the Nuremberg Charter, the U.N. Charter and the Geneva Conventions. Under the Nuremberg Charter, for example, the supreme international crime is that of initiating a war of aggression (e.g., the unauthorized invasion of Iraq) because it is the crime from which all war crimes follow. Finally, the author considers the possibility or likelihood of the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague charging key members of the G.W. Bush administration with war crimes. A discussion of these topics is offered because the culpability of the Bush administration under state and international laws is a significant issue in the ongoing debate over the legitimacy and consequences of the Iraq war.
