Aljazeera.Net - Rumsfeld cancels trip after accusations

Propaganda or good journalism? Al-jazeera is not the media conglomerate of choice of Middle-Eastern advertisers (ie. Halliburton/KBR) . Which is why it might be the least biased view of the middle-east.


US Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld cancelled a planned visit to Germany after a US human rights organisation asked German authorities to prosecute him for war crimes, Deutsche Presse-Agentur (dpa) has learned.

Rumsfeld has informed the German government via the US embassy that he will not take part in the Munich Security Conference in February, conference head Horst Teltschik told dpa on Thursday.

The New York-based Centre for Constitutional Rights filed a
complaint in December with the Federal German Prosecutor's Office against Rumsfeld accusing him of war crimes and torture in connection with detainee abuses at Iraq's Abu Ghraib prison.
