Pressure Mounts on Canadian Law Enforcement Official to Arrest George
Bush for International Crimes and for Possible Involvement in the 9/11

Saskatoon Canada. About 300 protesters gathered outside of Teachers'
Credit Union Place
in Saskatoon to make a public display of their refusal to welcome
George W. Bush to Canada. Bush's luncheon address to a business
audience in Saskatoon was one stop in his three city Canadian tour.
While one branch of the protesters worked with police, another branch
emphasized the responsibility of the police to arrest George Bush.
This second group has aligned itself with Lawyers Against War. As it
did in the prelude to the former US president's speeches in Calgary
and Toronto, LAW delivered evidence to the relevant law enforcement
officials right up to Prime Minister Stephen Harper. LAW has
documented the case that Bush is credibly accused war criminal who
should be arrested in Canada and tried for international crimes as
well as for violating the Canadian Crimes Against Humanity and War
At one point I, Josh Blakeney, who am here in Saskatoon covering the
event for Globalization Studies at the University of Lethbridge, took
the microphone on the dissenters podium to criticize one of the
organizers who publicly thanked the police. I presented the case on
behalf of those who believe that Canadian law enforcement officials
are violating the rule of law, including the Nuremberg principles, for
not arresting former US president for his role in authorizing
aggressive war and torture. Following orders, it was decided at
Nuremberg and the United Nations, is no excuse for violating
international laws as Canadian law enforcement officials have
consistently done in refusing to arrest George Bush's during his
Canadian speaking engagements.
I also drew attention on and off the podium to the growing body of
evidence that parts of the US government may have been involved in the
controlled demolitions of the three World Trade Center towers on
September 11, 2001. A recent peer-reviewed article by University of
Copenhagen Chemistry Professor Niels Harrit et. al. demonstrates
conclusively that military grade nano-thermite was used in dropping
the three towers. From the day one of the post-9/11 era the US
government has stuck to its initial story that the three steel-frame
towers collapsed because of the impact of two plane crashes.
I pointed out that the contested events of 9/11 form the basis of the
US government's Global War on Terror which continues under the Obama
regime but with a different name. Most of the the war crimes and
crimes against humanity that LAW and other organizations have pressed
against George Bush came about because of aggressive wars justified by
an explanation of 9/11 that subsequent research and publication by
Professor David Ray Griffin and others have shown to be implausible.
The US government alleged on day one that Osama bin Laden and nineteen
Saudi hijackers with box cutters acted alone in creating the 9/11
debacle. This version of events would attribute the destruction to a
massive failure of intelligence, air defense, immigration, and
skyscrapper engineering for which no one has yet been fired for
incompetence or malfeasance.
In my short talk at the dissenter's podium in Saskatoon I called
attention to the importance of the upcoming trial next March of
Splitting the Sky, a prominent activist in the movement seeking 9/11
truth. The well-known Mohawk activist, who is also known as John
Boncore, was arrested in Calgary last March attempting to conduct a
citizens' arrest of George Bush.
