The German prosecutors have not made any decision. whether Rumsfeld shall be investigated or not. The plaintiffs are Iraqis, not Germans. The plaintiffs are supported by an American NGO, not a German NGO. They WANT to have a criminal investigation in Germany, but it is doubtful whether they will get one. They have not even contacted the German prosecutors yet. They have just issued a press release, picked up by TIME magazine. That's all that happened, but the American blogosphere goes ballistic and blames Germany, although Germany has not done anything. Crazy. Apparently, many American bloggers are so convinced that Germans are Anti-American that they can't see straight anymore. German prosecutors have dismissed similar cases in the past. This is explained in more detail in the Atlantic Review, which is edited by three German Fulbright Alumni.
