Bush charged in Vancouver, B.C., court

A Vancouver lawyer has filed criminal charges against George Bush in Vancouver Provincial Court. Gail Davidson, cochair of an international legal group called Lawyers Against the War, said she charged Bush with seven counts of counselling, aiding, and abetting the commission of torture in connection with the actions of U.S. armed forces at Abu Ghraib prison and at Guantánamo Bay.

Davidson said that by December 8, the Attorney General of Canada, Irwin Cotler, must give his consent for the case to continue. If the case goes to trial and Bush is found guilty, he would be liable to imprisonment for up to 14 years.

Pie in the sky? Of course. But it's still fun to think about.
