Bush now has less than three hours to be President. What next for this man? Well, there’s one big question:
Will he be charged with anything like war crimes?
Given his approval of torture it is certainly something that remains possible. Much as I’d like to see him answer for it, I very much doubt it – and even if charges are brought, he won’t stand trial. You might see someone try to bring charges at the Hague but the US probably wouldn’t extradite him. If Bush stays home (something I imagine he’ll be happy to do), he’ll be safe.
