Accountability for Rummy?

Apparently disgraced secretary of "war" Donald Rumsfeld may face charges as a war criminal, according to an article in Time Magazine. Documents to be filed in Germany next week are alleged to name Rumsfeld along with Atty. Gen. Alberto Gonzales, George Tenent (former CIA director) and other top Bush administration officials for their roles in alleged abuses at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq and the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

The case is to be files by 11 Iraqis and at least one Saudi who claim that there were held and tortured by U.S. and coalition forces. Rumsfeld is know to have personally approved various "special interrogation techniques," which are considered torture internationally. Gonzales was the legal architect for the use of the techniques and avoiding scrutiny by Congress.
