Francis Boyle, Professor at the University of Illinois College of Law, discusses his legal Complaint demanding the prosecution of Bush administration officials for crimes against humanity, the International Criminal Court’s (ICC) jurisdiction over crimes committed by the US in ICC-member countries, the “Marty” report that catalogs the US practice of “extraordinary rendition” and how a less-desirable international prosecution is the result of the Obama administration’s failure to uphold the rule of law.

Francis Boyle is a Professor and scholar in the areas of international law and human rights. He is the author of Tackling America’s Toughest Questions: Alternative Media Interviews, BREAKING ALL THE RULES: Palestine, Iraq, Iran and the Case for Impeachment and many other publications.

Professor Boyle received a J.D. degree magna cum laude and A.M. and Ph.D. degrees in political science from Harvard University. Prior to joining the faculty at the College of Law, he was a teaching fellow at Harvard and an associate at its Center for International Affairs. He also practiced tax and international tax with Bingham, Dana & Gould in Boston.

He has written and lectured extensively in the United States and abroad on the relationship between international law and politics. His Protesting Power: War, Resistance and Law (Rowman & Littlefield Inc. 2007) has been used successfully in anti-war protest trials. In the September 2000 issue of the prestigious The International History Review, Professor Boyle’s Foundations of World Order: The Legalist Approach to International Relations (1898-1922) was proclaimed as “a major contribution to this reinterrogation of the past” and “required reading for historians, political scientists, international relations specialists, and policy-makers.” That book was translated into Korean and published in Korea in 2003 by Pakyoungsa Press.

As an internationally recognized expert, Professor Boyle serves as counsel to  Bosnia and Herzegovina and to the Provisional Government of the State of Palestine. He also represents two associations of citizens within Bosnia and has been instrumental in developing the indictment against Slobodan Milosevic for committing genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Professor Boyle is Attorney of Record for the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria, conducting its legal affairs on a worldwide basis. Over his career, he has represented national and international bodies including the Blackfoot Nation (Canada), the Nation of Hawaii, and the Lakota Nation, as well as numerous individual death penalty and human rights cases. He has advised numerous international bodies in the areas of human rights, war crimes and genocide, nuclear policy, and bio-warfare.

From 1991-92, Professor Boyle served as Legal Advisor to the Palestinian Delegation to the Middle East Peace Negotiations. He also has served on the Board of Directors of Amnesty International, as well as  a consultant to the American Friends Services Committee, and on the Advisory Board for the Council for Responsible Genetics. He drafted the U.S. domestic implementing legislation for the Biological Weapons Convention, known as the Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act of 1989, that was approved unanimously by both Houses of the U.S. Congress and signed into law by President George H.W. Bush. That story is told in his book Biowarfare and Terrorism (Clarity Press: 2005).

In 2001 he was selected to be the Dr. Irma M. Parhad Lecturer by the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Calgary in Canada. In 2007 he became the Bertrand Russell Peace Lecturer at McMaster University in Canada. Professor Boyle is listed in the current edition of  Marquis’ Who’s Who in America.

Currently Professor Boyle lectures on international law at the University of Illinois College of Law.

  1. I can't think of a better example of 'the elephant in the room'! The Bush administration gutted this country in more ways than one and should be held accountable.

  2. The BOOOOOSHE MAFIA needs to go to the Hague, no less!!! Orange jumpsuits for ALL THE CRIMINALS ESPECIALLY MOSSAD!

  3. F— prison

    Execute the traitors,

    Turd of Terror

  4. When criminals write their "laws" you shouldn't expect them to volunteer to go to jail.

  5. I am impressed. But still, if Professor Boyle serves as counsel to Bosnia and Herzegovina, he is sure to find floatsam and jetsam to pull in front of a court on that side of the fence too.

  6. Over at http://www.moneyteachers.org/911.htm they've gone into an interesting story on Atta of that Mossad false-flag terror op. aka 9-11…they focus on the work of Daniel Hunsaker; " News that Atta had been on the payroll of the elite international program surfaced in a curious way just a mo. after the attack: a brief 7-line report by German newspapr Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung on 10/18/01, under the headline " ATTA WAS TUTOR FOR SCHOLARSHIP HOLDERS." Thus Atta had been on the payroll of a joint US-German program. One sign of an intelligence asset is his involvement in organizations backed by the western power elite.

  7. The fact that 9-11 "hijacker" Atta was being paid to "tutor" others in the program means that he was probably an Illuminati trainer as well. That is, he was involved as a "handler" of other Illuminati intelligence assets as well. In other words, Atta was a programmed multiple that managed other programmed multiples for the CIA-Illuminati.. This would explain the erratic behavior..http://www.MadCowProd.com has an interview w/his American girlfrnd. Striking in the video is the testimony concerning the massive amts of cocaine and other drugs avail to Atta..This is more evidence that he was an " MK-Ultra" multiple mind slave..The US end of this program was run out of an address at the UN Plaza by CDS International. The Carl Duisberg Society. The list of elite power brokers backing CDS Int incl Kissinger, Rockefeller, Bill and Hillary, Ira Magaziner..etc

  8. My compliments to Professor Boyle. I wish him the best as he pursues his complaint in the International Criminal Court against the former Chickenhawk-in-Chief.

    Because the U.S. Government under Obama is just as "law free," so to speak, it's necessary to go the international route.

  9. The German paper quoted a spokesman for " Carl Duisberg Gesellschaft", desribed as a " German international further education org.." as having paid ATTA as a "scholarship holder" and "tutor" btwn '95 and '97..

  10. German Nazis were hung at the end of WWII 'for waging aggressive war" – and is there any difference between what they did and what Bush / Cheney and all of the Zionists in the Bush Administration did? NOT to excuse Hitler – and I repeat – NOT to excuse Hitler – but one can almost justify his attack on Poland to retrieve the German city of Dansig. And what 'excuse' did Bush have for war with Iraq, Afghanistan? We have seen the terrorists and it is US!

  11. Thank you Mr. Boyle: I hope that the Hague will start an investigation off of your complaint.
    You have done a great service to our Country, one built upon laws that all have to follow.
    I wish that the background music on your interview did not exist, it was very hard to understand
    you at times. Carry on !!! In Peace, John

  12. Just why should the 'Bush Team' only be locked up in prison….. why not tortured and then locked up… in an Iraqi prison.
