Of course it's always funny watching which laws liberals like to hold up and pretend to care about. While the Bush Derangement Syndrome sufferers continue to harass the former President for having the audacity to give terrorists a hard time, they have no problem ignoring say, sanctuary cities who protect violent illegal aliens or a corrupt Obama administration that started an operation that led to the murder of a border patrol agent. But that's who they are and why they should never be taken seriously:
Former members of the George W. Bush administration assailed Amnesty International Thursday for demanding the former president's arrest while he and his family are in Africa, calling Amnesty's campaign at best a form of "harassment" and at worst a threat.
The world's largest human rights group said Thursday "there is enough evidence in the public domain" to justify Ethiopia, Tanzania or Zambia arresting the former president during his visit to the region on charges of committing "crimes under international law." The president is traveling in the three nations between Thursday and Monday to promote AIDS and cancer awareness.
"They've been trying to get any country where President Bush and Vice President Cheney visit to harass them wherever they go," former Justice Department attorney John Yoo said of Amnesty's actions.
"It could be taken as a call for violence against the president," said Brad Blakeman, a former Bush adviser who accompanied the former president to Africa in 2003.
Blakeman said Amnesty is just trying to "embarrass" the former president but the sustained campaign could be potentially dangerous.
"I think it's a threat upon ... the former president," he said.
The group said the three nations should investigate Bush's "alleged involvement in and responsibility for torture," referring to the Bush administration's use of waterboarding.
"All countries to which George W. Bush travels have an obligation to bring him to justice for his role in torture," said Matt Pollard, senior legal adviser for the American branch of AI.
But Bush officials said Amnesty's campaign at this point should be categorized as "harassment" -- particularly considering the purpose of Bush's visit.
"It shows how upside-down the human rights world is, where they're going after a president who's trying to save lives -- many, many lives. Why? Because they're upset about the treatment of three al Qaeda leaders in the war on terrorism," Yoo, who wrote memos that provided the legal basis for the CIA's Bush-era interrogation program, told FoxNews.com.
