Michael Ratner will introduce, discuss and sign his new book, The Trial of Donald Rumsfeld: A Prosecution by Book. This book compiles evidence that the Bush Administration is guilty of war crimes - evidence presented in the form of a court case. The Trial of Donald Rumsfeld offers proof that high-level officials, including Rumsfeld, ordered, authorized, implemented and permitted war crimes such as torture and cruel, inhuman, and degrading treatment in the name of fighting the "war on terror."
