From World Can't Wait | Original Article

People across the globe are rightly raising the alarm that Trump appointed well-known advocates of aggressive war on the world, Mike Pompeo and John Bolton, as Secretary of State and National Security Advisor. These are men who to this day justify the illegitmate, unjust, immoral war on Iraq under the rubric of "America First." And, he is calling for a woman, Gina Haspel, known for her role in abetting and then covering up torture, to move into Pompeo's current position as CIA Director. 

WarCriminalsWatch.org identified Bolton as a war criminal since the project began in 2008, with the election of Obama.  Bolton's fingerprints on crimes against humanity go back to the Reagan administration, when he helped engineer the Iran-Contra deal, leading to US-caused deaths in Central America and the Mid East.

Name: John R. Bolton
Born: November 20, 1948
Profession: Attorney
GW Bush Administration Position:

  • Undersecretary of State for Arms Control and International Security
  • Interim Permanent US Representative to the UN from August 2005 until December 2006 on a recess appointment

Donald Trump Administration Position:

  • National Security Adviser, April 9, 2018 -- (his appointment was announced on March 22, 2018)

War crime charge(s):

  • Crime against peace – planning and carrying out a war of aggression.
  • Helped prepare the U.S. war on Iraq, claiming that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction as justification for the war.

Trump’s New War Cabinet: An Even Greater Danger to Humanity
by Sunsara Taylor posted on RefuseFascism.org

...The Congressional Research Service recently estimated that as many as 300,000 people could die in the first few days of war against North Korea – and that is the estimate assuming there are no nuclear weapons involved. If the war becomes nuclear, experts have said there could easily be a million deaths on the first day. And that would only be the beginning.

The writing on the walls could not be more clear. Trump has assembled a team that is fully prepared to plunge the world into catastrophic wars that could easily and quickly spin out of their control. The question is, what will we do? Read more.

The nomination of Gina Haspel, Trump's nominee for CIA Director, has brought out public protest.  Curt Wechler calls for, "a public reckoning with the nominee's administration of one of the most notorious of the CIA's 'black sites,' in Thailand, known as Detention Site Green, where the most brutal interrogations of two suspected al-Qaeda operatives, Abu Zubaydah and Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri took place."

A Failure of Accountability Made Gina Haspel's Nomination Possible

'Bloody Gina' also played a role in destroying videotaped evidence of what occurred at that site. Former CIA counterterrorism officer John Kiriakou recounts the torture: 'They waterboarded Abu Zubaida 83 times. They later subjected him to sleep deprivation; they kept him locked in a large dog cage for weeks at a time; they locked him in a coffin-size box and, knowing that he had an irrational fear of insects, put bugs in it with him.'
