International Criminal court told canada complicit in torture of afghan detainees

A Canadian human rights activist has filed more than 120 documents with the International Criminal Court (ICC­) demonstrating reasons for concern about the legality of Canada’s handling of the transfer of detainees in Afghanistan and calling for an investigation.
John McNamer, of Kamloops, B.C., said the information was sent to the Office of the Prosecutor at the ICC and that he has informed Canada’s governor general and attorney general, inviting both to have a look at the evidence.  He says there is substantial reason to believe international laws have been violated during much of Canada’s mission in Afghanistan through the transfer of detainees into conditions of torture at the hands of U.S. and Afghan authorities.
McNamer, a decorated Vietnam veteran, said it is a matter of conscience for him and that he has been shocked over past years by “the lack of legal and moral integrity” from Canada on the handling of people detained in Afghanistan. 
“Complicity in torture is a war crime, and Canada is up to its neck in complicity in torture,” he said in a press release Wednesday. “It’s truly a horror story when you stop and look at everything that has come down on this, and anyone who wants to look at this information had better have a strong stomach.”
He said he sent evidence to the ICC because he believes top Canadian authorities have used their power to cover up wrongdoing and that the truth about detainee torture will come out only with intervention by a higher authority such as the International Criminal Court.

Obama, himself, is complicit, in the protection of Bush officials from prosecuting them, along with his own criminality, torture camps

in Afghanistan.   Panetta, the Fascist miltary should be prosecute along with the whole Congress for their FASCIST COMPLICITY, torture

and fascist foreign policies, failure to prosecute War criminals.    PROSECUTE ALL WESTERN WAR CRIMINALS AND FASCIST,




NATO and the Fascist U.S. Empire bribed, threatened former STALINIST STATES , into complicity in rendition flights, torture and black


The class and Empire deformed language and criminal policies have produced multiple class ideologies , including Liberalism,

degenerating into totalitarianism, and FASCISM:


Obama's Human Rights Insouciance



"Is Obama a hypocrite or merely insouciant? Or is he an idiot?

According to news reports Obama's White House meeting on Valentine's day with China's Vice President, Xi Jinping, provided an opportunity for Obama to raise "a sensitive human rights issue with the Chinese leader-in-waiting." The brave and forthright Obama didn't let etiquette or decorum get in his way. Afterwards, Obama declared that Washington would "continue to emphasize what we believe is the importance of realizing the aspirations and rights of all people."

Think about that for a minute. Washington is now in the second decade of murdering Muslim men, women, and children in six countries. Washington is so concerned with human rights that it drops bombs on schools, hospitals, weddings and funerals, all in order to uphold the human rights of Muslim people. You see, bombing liberates Muslim women from having to wear the burka and from male domination.

One hundred thousand, or one million, dead Iraqis, four million displaced Iraqis, a country with destroyed infrastructure, and entire cities, such as Fallujah, bombed and burnt with white phosphorus into cinders is the proper way to show concern for human rights.

Ditto for Afghanistan. And Libya....


He is powerless to prevent himself from supplying Israel with weapons with which to murder Palestinians and Lebanese citizens to whom Obama brings human rights by vetoing every UN resolution passed against Israel for its crimes against humanity.

Instead of following Washington's human rights lead, the evil Chinese invest in other countries, buy things from them, and sell them goods.

Has any foreign dignitary ever raised "a sensitive human rights issue" with Obama or his predecessor? How is the world so deranged that Washington can murder innocents for years on end and still profess to be the world's defender of human rights?

How many people has China bombed, droned, and sanctioned into non-existence in the 21st century?

Will Syria and Iran be the next victims of Washington's concern for human rights?

Nothing better illustrates the total unreality of life in the West than the fact that the entire Western world did not break out in riotous laughter over Obama's expression of his human rights concern over China's behavior...."
