The United States Department of Justice has requested that former President George W. Bush and the highest figures in his administration receive full exemption from being tried for the Iraq War, which the DoJ says was in line with international law.

  Apart from Bush, the names listed in the paper the DoJ filed on  Tuesday are former Vice President Richard Cheney, former  Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, retired four-star General  Colin Powell, former Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice and  former Deputy Secretary of Defense and President of the World  Bank, Paul Wolfowitz.

  Sundus Saleh, an Iraqi single mother of three who became a  refugee, filed a complaint in March in the San Francisco federal  court, claiming that the war in her country can be judged as a   ‘crime of aggression’, according to the same legal standards that  the Nuremberg Tribunal used for convicting Nazi war criminals of  World War II.

  Saleh is the lead plaintiff in this class action lawsuit.  

  The reason for the decision is connected with the ‘Westfall Act’   certification. The 1988 law gives the Attorney General the power  to personally decide whether the United States is actually a  defendant in the case. This in turn allows the granting of  absolute immunity to politicians for actions carried out while in  the government’s employ.

  Inder Comar of Comar Law has agreed to take the case. The  San-Francisco-based firm normally specializes in support to  private companies, particularly those in the tech industry. Comar  met with Saleh at her home in Jordan to discuss the case. 

  Chief counsel Comar wrote on the War Is a Crime website  explaining that, “The DoJ claims that in planning and waging  the Iraq War, ex-President Bush and key members of his  Administration were acting within the legitimate scope of their  employment and are thus immune from suit.”
