    Update on Rummy

    Well the lack of domestic press wasn't enough for the war crimes charges handed to Rummy to disappear.
    United States Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld has cancelled a planned visit to Munich.

    Rumsfeld has informed the German government via the US embassy he will not take part at the Munich Security Conference in February, conference head Horst Teltschik said.
    The New York-based Center for Constitutional Rights filed a complaint in December with the Federal German Prosecutor's Office against Rumsfeld accusing him of war crimes and torture in connection with detainee abuses at Iraq's Abu Ghraib prison.

    Rumsfeld had made it known immediately after the complaint was filed that he would not attend the Munich conference unless Germany quashed the legal action.

    Why was he charged?

    US Code TITLE 18 > PART I > CHAPTER 118 > ยง 2441

    Definition (c-1)-> "defined as a grave breach in any of the international conventions signed at Geneva 12 August 1949, or any protocol to such convention to which the United States is a party"

    Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment
