College Students Stage Mass Walkout On Dick Cheney, Call Him “War Criminal”

College Students Stage Mass Walkout On Dick Cheney, Call Him “War Criminal” – Video

by Will Kohler

Video footage shows students walking out on Dick Cheney while he was speaking at American University. The students were protesting his foreign policy, and calling him a “War criminal” as they left the arena.

As reported by American University’s The Eagle, the former vice-president denied allegations that he was a war criminal saying that “the accusation are not true.”

Cheney told the crowd that during his vice-presidency three people had been waterboarded.

According to Cheney, the enhanced interrogation tactics used do not fall under the scope of the 1949 United Nations Geneva Convention, which outlaws cruel, inhuman or any degrading treatment or punishment because the Geneva Convention does not apply to unlawful combatants.

The Bush administration considered terrorists as unlawful combatants and considered those undergoing enhanced interrogation tactics as terrorists.

“If I would have to do it all over again, I would,” Cheney said. “The results speak for themselves.”

  1. If what this man, the former VP of the USA, says, please tell me mister former Vice-President of the United States of America, why the people you define as terrorists are put on trials at Military Tribunals…… were terrorists by and under your own definition are not military but civilians who took up weapons against other people………..

    Civilians are not to be put on trial before or at military tribunals, according to international law, and international military law, as well as by decision and resolution of and by the United Nations……

    These people you define as terrorists are civilians and MUST be put on trial, and informed of their crime, be receiving an indictment, and be given the opportunity to defend themselves against an accusation, and the by dismissing of the rights of these civilians is, in itself a warcrime, as these civilians were kidnapped from, and transported away from, or out of the warzone, and that IS a warcrime!

    The fact mister former Vice-President of the USA can not travel to Europe without being arrested for war-crimes, the fact mister former Vice-President of the USA can not travel to locations that are outside the USA for whatever purpose, says enough about how the world regards your actions and decisions then!
    You mister former Vice-President of the USA are by and under definition of international law a war-criminal!
    And every citizen, US-national or any other national, on American soil or anywhere else, is allowed to make a so-called citizen arrest, and every official preventing such an arrest is in violation of international law, to which the USA is subject!
