A CNN headline during Tuesday's 11 a.m. hour of Newsroom asked, "Should Bush officials be tried for war crimes?"
CNN legal analyst Lisa Bloom argued that the U.S. should submit to the
jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court for the mass murder of
Iraqis that far exceeded the 9/11 atrocities.
Bloom downplayed the 9/11 terror attacks in the face of the Iraq War.
When anchor Ashleigh Banfield noted that America responded to 9/11 with
force and not in a "sanguine" manner, Bloom compared it to the Iraqi
casualty count: "And that was 4,000, not 100,000, not 10 years." [Video below the break. Audio here.]
