Bush: War Criminal

Bush administration quietly circulating draft legislation to eliminate crucial parts of the War Crimes Act
The US War Crimes Act of 1996 makes it a felony to commit grave violations of the Geneva Conventions. The Washington Post recently reported that the Bush administration is quietly circulating draft legislation to eliminate crucial parts of the War Crimes Act. Observers on The Hill say the Administration plans to slip it through Congress this fall while there still is a guaranteed Republican majority--perhaps as part of the military appropriations bill, the proposals for Guantánamo tribunals or a new catch-all "anti-terrorism" package. Why are they doing it, and how can they be stopped?
So, I don't understand why the Dems aren't making a big media stink about this. Maybe they want to commit war crimes in the future if they ever come to power.
