OTTAWA - Amnesty International wants the federal government to arrest former U.S. president George W. Bush when he visits British Columbia next week.

The rights body said both Canadian and international law require Canada to detain Bush and investigate him for war crimes and torture.

"It is incumbent upon Canadian officials to investigate, arrest and prosecute former president Bush for torture when he arrives in Canada a week tomorrow," said Alex Neve, Amnesty Canada's secretary general.

Bush and former president Bill Clinton are scheduled to attend an economic conference in Surrey, B.C. next week.

It does not matter whether it is Obama or the President of Iran or wall st bankers, action should be taken against all those who commit crimes in a fair and impartial manner, then there would not be any occupy wall st.

This is interesting but I don't feel it is getting at the real root of the problem. Please watch this video for clarification on this point:
