Earlier today, at the Hay festival in Britain, journalist and environmental campaigner George Monbiot made an unsuccessful attempt to arrest the ex-Bush administration official, John Bolton, who was speaking at the event.
Monbiot is a terrific journalist and thorough researcher. His work is often linked by Sparrow Chat. On his website, he explains the reason why he chose to attempt a citizen’s arrest of John Bolton for war crimes.

I’m sure George was aware beforehand he had no chance of circumventing the tight security around Bolton. The episode was obviously a publicity stunt to keep those responsible for the Iraq carnage in the public eye. How sad, though, that a common journalist has to take such action, when the great and powerful who control our nations sit with their fat, gold-infested, fingers jammed under their ample buttocks, and do nothing.
When is the international ass-crawling to this warped and twisted administration finally going to stop?
