WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles) – Former U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney was busted for his role in war crimes committed during the administration of his former boss, George W. Bush.
This is the first time that Cheney was made to answer for his crimes on U.S. soil. He was busted at the U.S. Capitol. The war crimes include torture suffered by victims at the hands of soldiers and contractors in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Ironically, Cheney’s busting was witnessed by no less than Bush himself.
In 2012, Bush, Cheney and other key members of their administration were found guilty of war crimes in a trial held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. They were tried in absentia.
Responding to questions from the media after Cheney was busted, Bush said he was relieved that his Vice President was just busted, and not hanged.
