Calls for Accountability over Iraq War

Hosted by  • 

Three weeks before last month's elections, 51% of Americans favored impeachment of President Bush, but House Speaker elect Nancy Pelosi says it's "off the table."  This weekend, rallies and forums are planned to build grassroots momentum. A court in Germany has been asked to press "war crimes" charges against Donald Rumsfeld over the prisons at Abu Ghraib and Guantánamo Bay. Has the President exceeded the powers granted him by the Constitution?  Can foreign courts prosecute US officials for the way they do their jobs?
