"Pinter demands war crimes trial for Blair" (UPDATED)

"How many people do you have to kill before you qualify to be described as a mass murderer and a war criminal? One hundred thousand? More than enough, I would have thought," he said.

"Therefore it is just that Bush and Blair be arraigned before the international criminal court of justice. But Bush has been clever. He has not ratified the international criminal court of justice ..."-from the story in the Guardian Unlimited (UK).

The New York Times story, "Playwright Takes a Prize and a Jab at U.S.," casts Pinter as an America-hater and doesn't mention his call for Bush to face international justice. Update: This story from the BBC, "Bush and Blair slated by Pinter" sharpens and echoes the earlier story.
