Al-Zaidis Schuhattacke gegen G.W. Bush
In the US "we have a very very unusual and unprecedented situation where the president of the United States has bragged about ordering a felony, ordering a prosecutable offense," he went on to say.
"The reason he does that is because he thinks that no US court will move against him," McGovern argued.
In the memoir, Bush recalls that when the CIA asked him whether it could proceed with waterboarding of Khalid Sheik Mohammed, the alleged plotter of the 9/11 attacks, he replied "Damn right," The Washington Post reported.
Bush justifies the decision by claiming Mohammed was suspected of knowing about future terrorist plots against the United States.
