Amnesty International Calls on Canadian Authorities to Arrest George W. Bush

(By Tiffany Gabbay, The Blaze) - Amnesty International is calling on Canadian authorities to arrest former president George W. Bush during his planned visit to British Columbia next week.

The human rights group said Bush violated international law when his administration utilized enhanced interrogation techniques in the questioning of enemy combatants. Amnesty also asserts Bush should be brought on charges of war crimes and torture.

“It is incumbent upon Canadian officials to investigate, arrest and prosecute former president Bush for torture when he arrives in Canada a week tomorrow,” said Alex Neve, Amnesty Canada’s secretary general.

Neve even went so far as to say the Mounties should be sent for Bush as soon as he sets foot on Canadian soil.
