Bush and Blair found guilty of war crimes
Well, that was quick. The Malaysian tribunal already returned a guilty verdict against Mr Bush and Mr Blair for "crimes against peace."

Yeah, I know, big deal. I'm sure they're both crying in their beer.

5. If they do, and they carry out an assassination . . .
Will the U.S. object? Can the U.S. object? Blair and Bush got far more due process from Malaysia than bin Laden, Al-Awlaki or Al-Awlaki's son got. Seems pretty shameful that Malaysia has more respect for the rule of law than the United States does, but the conclusion seems so apparent, it's almost inescapable.

4. That's a start.
Lot more to try. Lot more places to try them in.

Most of all: Lots of victims who demand justice.
