Supreme Court Ends Torture Suit Against Rumsfeld
Supreme Court Ends Torture Suit Against Rumsfeld

Monday, 10 Jun 2013 10:59 AM



The Supreme Court has rejected an appeal from two American whistleblowers who claim U.S. forces tortured them in Iraq and who want to sue former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld.

The justices' action Monday leaves in place a federal appeals court ruling that found Rumsfeld cannot be held liable for actions taken by subordinates that may have crossed legal bounds.

The two men are Donald Vance and Nathan Ertel, who say they were detained and tortured after they accused an Iraqi-owned company for which they worked of illegally running guns.

This was obvious... If they allowed this then the gate is open to sue Bush for his actions taken.
