Biden Nominee Wanted to Prosecute Bush and Cheney

A Biden nominee for the State Department pushed to prosecute George Bush and Dick Cheney for War Crimes.

According to The Washington Free Beacon:

President Joe Biden’s nominee for human-rights chief at the State Department has called on the Hague to investigate U.S. armed forces and former Bush administration officials for alleged “war crimes” and “crimes against humanity” related to the war on terror, a stance that conflicts with the Biden administration’s stated opposition to the international court probe.

Sarah Margon, Biden’s nominee for assistant secretary of state for democracy, human rights, and labor, was the Washington, D.C., director for Human Rights Watch (HRW) and the foreign policy director at the Open Society Foundations. She has advocated prosecuting U.S. officials in foreign criminal courts over the CIA’s enhanced interrogation programs and other activities in Afghanistan—a position at odds with the Biden administration’s stance that could draw scrutiny ahead of Margon’s Senate confirmation hearing.

The Hague, also known as the International Criminal Court, launched an investigation last year into U.S. military and government officials for supposed “war crimes of torture and cruel treatment,” prompting the Trump administration to institute sanctions and a visa ban against ICC officials.

“We continue to disagree strongly with the ICC’s actions relating to the Afghanistan and Palestinian situations,” said Secretary of State Antony Blinken in April. “We maintain our longstanding objection to the Court’s efforts to assert jurisdiction over personnel of non-States Parties such as the United States and Israel.”

Many Bush-era officials and proponents have slammed the nomination as a movement to wish and hope away the world’s problems.

A Communist Wanna Be wishes to work in the State Department?
Certainty, the WH and Sniffer, Toucher Joe can identify a more credible candidate who does not know that it is easier to be a Communist in a Free country than to be Free in a Communist Country.

Aid and comfort to the enemy constitute TREASON! If a U.S. citizen attempts to sic an agency of the corrupt and ANTI-AMERICAN UN on the U.S.A., that citizen should face death by firing squad, PERIOD!

One can only marvel at the stupidity of Biden considering this wretch, Sarah Margon, for this position. Since 9/11 more than 40,000 murderous Islamic jihad attacks have taken place, yet this feckless maggot doesn’t wish to focus on Muslims, Muslim terror organizations such as the Muslim Brotherhood, Hezbollah, Boko Haram, al-Shabab and Hamas, no, it must be on U.S. officials involved in fighting these terrorist organizations. For goodness sake, get rid of this imbecile!

Sadly, it doesn’t really make any difference whether or not bideN is an idiot, since either way he’s a PUPPET for the Globalist CABAL.
