Lawsuits against the Bush Administration didn’t have the luxury of an insane Congress suing the president for something they wanted. Instead they have had a rocky road over the last decade following the information which led to the war in Iraq.
The Saleh v. Bush lawsuit just received a new hearing date which ironically lands on September 11th of this year. Their previous hearing was denied but Inder Comar believes they have strong legal precedent to get their lawsuit through the new hearing date.
(from Quiet Mike)
Last summer, Inder Comar, Esq. filed a lawsuit against the Bush Administration on behalf of Iraqi refugee plaintiff Sundus Shaker Saleh. It is a noble attempt to hold the Bush Administration accountable for war crimes and a case that Quiet Mike has been following from the beginning.
Earlier this year, the Department of Justice, who is defending the six Bush Administration officials, responded to the lawsuit by requesting that the case be dismissed. The Bush tribe is claiming that the planning of the war occurred within the scope of their employment and therefore they have immunity.
Rather than dismissing the case, the Judge asked for additional information. So Mr. Comar filed a 2nd amended complaint back in June. The amended complaint provides more details about the planning of the Iraq war and when it started.
Comar’s evidence, shows the Bush/Cheney team started planning the invasion of Iraq as far back as 1997. The amended complaint also explains that the war was motivated by personal enrichment and the war was a “crime of aggression.”
