bush takes a trip

Former de facto President George W. Bush is in China for something called the Boao Forum.

Wonder how much he was paid to attend?

Anyway, China is a good choice for the former President. They are unlikely to entertain any ideas to arrest the guy for authorizing torture or other things done on his watch.

Which raises an interesting mental exercise: what would the Obama Administration do if say Bush went to a EU country and somebody convinced a judge to issue a warrant for his arrest, and the police tried to arrest him? It would be a mess. Agree with Bush or not, I doubt ANY American administration would want to see an ex-Prez being arrested and prosecuted overseas.
