RUMSFELD QUITS GERMANY TRIP TO AVOID ARREST?

The Volokh Conspiracy's Juan Non-Volokh posts that Rumsfeld has canceled a trip to Munich. Why? Because the New York-based Center 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."

Apparently, the lawsuit's in play -- Germany hasn't quashed the center's legal motion, even though Rumsfeld said he wouldn't attend the conference unless they did. More here.
