    Yes, I second Laura’s request for an up-dated list; current criminality has been and continues to be as corrosive -even to a greater extent then the recent past. Our Peace Prize President and his “staff” have shown just how true this statement is.

    I would like to see an updated list to include the post 2008 war criminals, the one who hail from the other side of the aisle. As long as a blind eye is turned to Obama, Clinton, Clinton, Kerry, Rice, Powers and the rest of the so-called “lesser evils” (a term that is only meaningful to those engaged in denial), we haven’t a prayer for justice, much less peace.

    Thank you for this list… WE need to know the Who as much as the Why!
