The piper and the paying of...

Just days after he was fire - um - resigned from his office, it looks like things aren't exactly peaches for our previous Secretary of Illegal Wars. At a time when a recent MSNBC poll had 87% of the country in favor of investigation the Shrub White House for impeachment, Time magazine now reports that Rummy and friends are about to...

"...face more repercussions for his involvement in the troubled wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. New legal documents, to be filed next week with Germany's top prosecutor, will seek a criminal investigation and prosecution of Rumsfeld, along with Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, former CIA director George Tenet and other senior U.S. civilian and military officers, for their alleged roles in abuses committed at Iraq's Abu Ghraib prison and at the U.S. detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba."

It's almost as if it just doesn't pay to commit crimes against humanity any more.

In case it's not clear: "Germany was chosen for the court filing because German law provides "universal jurisdiction" allowing for the prosecution of war crimes and related offenses that take place anywhere in the world."

Oh, sweet irony.
