President George W. Bush called of an upcoming trip to Switzerland because of pending protests. What, what? But he was going to give a speech about freedom!
Several human rights groups including Amnesty International and the New York-based Center for Constitutional Rights had planned to ask Swiss prosecutors to open a criminal investigation against Mr. Bush over the admission in his recent memoirs that he personally authorized the waterboarding of terrorism suspects.Oh. Wonder if that had anything to do with it.
Wait, though -- this all sounds kind of familiar...
