United States' Nuremburg Chief Prosecutor Benjamin Ferencz Speaks Out on Iraq
United States Chief Prosecutor Benjamin Ferencz, was only 26 years old when he successfully prosecuted 24 Nazis SS officers for war crimes, at the infamous "Einsatzgruppen (Nazis Death Squads) Trials", including SS General Dr Otto Ohlendorf who pleaded not guilty due to self-defense in the murders of over 1,000,000 jews.
Ferencz has called the invasion of Iraq "a clear breach of law" and stated "regarding Iraq, that last security council resolution essentially said, look, send the weapons inspectors out to Iraq, have them come back and tell us what they've found then we'll figure out what we're going to do. The US (Bush) was impatient and decided to invade Iraq which was all pre-arranged of course. So, the United States (Bush) went to war in violation of the Charter" and being illegal to begin with made everything that followed illegal also.
