I read yesterday on the Huffington Post that bush has cancelled a trip to Switzerland after several groups threatened to protest his visit. Several human rights groups were also demanding his arrest because he has admitted to ordering torture. According to Reuters, Dominique Baettig, a right-wing member of the Swiss Parliament was also demanding his arrest. Of course bush denied that the criminal complaints had anything to do with the cancellation. I wish they hadn't warned him but just arrested him as soon as his plane landed. He should have been arrested and tried here but wasn't even though we are one of the 147 countries to have ratified the 1987 treaty banning torture.
