    Isn't it amusing that the US is not offering asylum to any of the deposed dictators in the middle east? We get all uppity and condescending about harboring fugitives while at the same time refusing to turn over members of the Bush/Cheney Regime who have outstanding arrest warrants from the World Court. Seems to me we should practice what we preach!

    Wow! I can't believe a fellow citizen has to ask! I don't know the exact legalese but all are connected to the Bush/Cheney Regime's invasion of Iraq.

    I'd like to read about the World Court charges. Do you have any links?

    As for harbouring ex-dicators from the Middle East, well that kinda bit the US badly the last time they did it, so maybe the State Dept. learned a lesson from it. Besides, why take them in directly when you have the Saudis?

    The United States gave all of them enough money they can live lavishly anywhere in the world....... although for some reason for the most part they all end up in France.
