In what is the first ever conviction of its kind anywhere in the world, the former US President and seven key members of his administration were today (Friday) found guilty of war crimes.
Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and their legal advisers Alberto Gonzales, David Addington, William Haynes, Jay Bybee and John Yoo were tried in absentia in Malaysia.
The trial held in Kuala Lumpur heard harrowing witness accounts from victims of torture who suffered at the hands of US soldiers and contractors in Iraq and Afghanistan.
They included testimony from British man Moazzam Begg, an ex-Guantanamo detainee and Iraqi woman Jameelah Abbas Hameedi who was tortured in the notorious Abu Ghraib prison.
At the end of the week-long hearing, the five-panel tribunal unanimously delivered guilty verdicts against Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and their key legal advisors who were all convicted as war criminals for torture and cruel, inhumane and degrading treatment.
Full transcripts of the charges, witness statements and other relevant material will now be sent to the Chief Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, as well as the United Nations and the Security Council.

Press Release  April 10, 2009
National Archives to Release Reagan and Bush Presidential Records

Washington, DC. . . Acting Archivist of the United States Adrienne Thomas announced today that 245,763 pages of Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush Presidential records will be opened for research on Monday, April 13, 2009, at their respective libraries. These records, which were still pending with the George W. Bush Administration as of January 20, 2009, today cleared the review process established by President Barack Obama under Executive Order 13489.

In making the announcement, Thomas said, "I am delighted that the Obama Administration has cleared the way to open these Presidential records. This action allows the American people to view historical records relating to the Presidency and judge for themselves the actions of federal officials."

These Presidential records are being released in accordance with the Presidential Records Act and the new Executive Order 13489, titled "Presidential Records," which was signed by President Obama on January 21, 2009.

On Monday, April 13, 2009, the Ronald Reagan library will open 244,966 pages of records processed in response to hundreds of Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests. These records include the Presidential Briefing Papers collection, Office of Speechwriting research material, and approximately 13,000 pages of declassified records on numerous foreign policy topics. To date, more than ten million pages of Presidential records have been processed at the Reagan library

The library is located at 40 Presidential Drive Simi Valley, California. Research room hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. See the Reagan Library web site for more information.

On Monday, April 13, 2009, the George H. W. Bush library will open 797 pages of records that deal with Saudi Arabia. To date, more than six million pages of Presidential records have been processed at the Bush library, which is located at 1000 George Bush Drive West, College Station, Texas. Research room hours are 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. See the George H.W. Bush Libary web site for more information

Obama Opens Some Reagan Records Kept Secret by Bush
Monday, April 13, 2009

Nearly a quarter million pages of records from the Reagan White House are finally going to be released to the public today, thanks to an executive order signed by President Barack Obama. Under the Presidential Records Act of 1978, the documents were supposed to have been made available to the public after January 20, 2001; twelve years after Reagan left the White House. However, on March 23, 2001, only five weeks after assuming the presidency, President Bush ordered the National Archives not to release the Reagan papers to the public. Bush also kept sealed the papers of Reagan’s vice-president, who happened to be Bush’s father.
  
The documents cover 244,966 pages of Presidential Briefing Papers, speech writing material, foreign policy topics, and other subjects. Many of the documents were requested by historians and others through the Freedom of Information Act, only to be denied by Bush’s order. Some of those requests involved memos relating to possible pardons for Iran-Contra conspirators Oliver North and John Poindexter. However, experts don’t expect those papers to be among the ones that will be made available through the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library. Approximately 800 pages from President George H.W. Bush’s administration on the topic of Saudi Arabia will be released, though.
  
The Obama decision does not address the consequences of another executive order that George W. Bush signed on November 1, 2001. That order gave former presidents and former vice-presidents, and their families after they die, the right to continue preventing the release of their papers.

Not only that, but, according to Bush’s executive order, even if an ex-president wants to release his papers to the public, the sitting president has the right to bar their release anyway
Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5

I'll go through them slowly,( but don't bet they haven't been edited, been a few moons gone by ).
VP Bush was Ronny's controller, each time RR was asked a serious question or facing up to internationl diplomats, he would respond, " I'll take that under advisement", he would then head off to close doors with GB and the crew to get the response.
 There will be some Sh**T in the records to keep people buzzing, but not what will cut the ice..
