Just Atonement Inc. is perhaps the only legal non profit in the world today dedicating time and effort to holding those leaders accountable who planned and executed the Iraq War.

JAI’s past work includes the Saleh v. Bush case, which resulted in a February 2017 court order from the Ninth Circuit court of appeal, which ruled that President Bush and other high-ranking officials were immune from proceedings under US domestic law, regardless of whether international law did not provide for such an immunity.

Our current work focuses on advocacy and other potential litigation avenues for litigating the Nuremberg-era “crime of aggression” with respect to Iraq.

We just don’t question it. We need to have a conversation about why we’re always at war. And why we’re always doing it unilaterally."
