But Paraguay (or is it Uruguay) still calls, George Jr

Human rights groups have vowed to track George W Bush round the world after their success in forcing him to cancel a trip to Switzerland amid concerns over protests and a threatened arrest warrant.

Katherine Gallagher, a lawyer with the New York-based Centre for Constitutional Rights, said: "The reach of the convention against torture is wide. This case is prepared and will be waiting for him wherever he travels next.(1)

It's an open and shut case. The Bush family has some big acreage in one of the aforementioned countries, turns out he might be spending a lot of time there clearing brush. Or hanging out in East Texas.

As a side note, how much of a stir could WikiLeaks really cause when an ex-president brags about torture and few people blink an eye in the United States ? We don't have the capacity to be shocked anymore. Just order up some greasy burgers and apathy/cynicism about the human condition.
