Should the head of state be held accountable for the consequences of their decisions once retired?


Specifically I'm referring to Bush and Blair with this post. It seems to me that when in power you can make the most terrible and misguided decisions but as soon as you either retire or lose an eledction you can wash your hands of the entire affair. In Tony Blair's new book he dismisses the fact that no weapons of mass destruction were found in Iraq by suggesting Saddam had enough desire for us to belive they were there! This is pitiful stuff. He knew he was wrong, but it's not a crime because he was head of state. And politicans get away with theiving expenses money from the tax payer too!
