Legal fairness
I was watching these comcast.net reports regarding Saddam's photos and his legal case and I realized something. If he is to be held legally responsible for "war crimes" simply in the basis that he held office at the time the crimes were committed, without proving intent, then by the same token, George Bush MUST be held responsible for the abuses in the Abu Grabe prison.

In 1986 the World Court convicted America of acts of terrorism and for war crimes for the atrocities we committed in Nicaragua in '83 and '84. Reagan is still regarded as a hero by many, despite that. Also, I think it's ironic that the U.S. has its big "War on Terror" when it's been one of the greatest perpetrators of terrorism and trainers of terrorists over the last century world wide.
