Torture Memos Revealed

 Link

 Excerpt:
CIA interrogators were given legal authorization (from the White House) to slam an alleged "high-value" detainee's head
against a wall, place insects inside a "confinement box" to induce fear and force him to remain awake for 11 consecutive days,
according to a closely guarded August 1, 2002, legal memo released by the Justice Department on Thursday.

 The memo, signed by the former head of the Justice Department's Office of Legal Counsel (OLC), Bush bastard Jay Bybee,
was written about a week after Bybee's office had given the CIA verbal authorization that subjecting the detainee to seven
other brutal interrogation methods would not violate torture laws.

"This letter memorializes our previous oral advice given on July 24, 2002 and July 26, 2002, that the proposed conduct would not
violate the prohibition against torture," wrote Bybee, who now has a lifetime judgeship on the Ninth Circuit US Court of Appeals.
CIA interrogators would not be in violation of torture laws, Bybee wrote, because they would not be acting with the intent to inflict
"severe pain or suffering" by subjecting detainees to the brutal interrogation methods outlined in the memo.

Said Bybee, "The absence of specific intent negates the charge of torture."
 

Have you ever seen such bullshit in your life?
If they have permission to slam his head against a brick wall, that means they have permission to smack this poor bastard
in the head with a brick - what's the difference?  And does anybody think they slammed his head gently or lightly?

And how the fuck do you slam a guy's head with a brick without the intent to inflict "severe pain or suffering?" 

Give me this Bybee piece of shit for an hour - I'll tie him to a chair and do all kinds of painful shit to him,
all the while I'll remember that my intention is not to  inflict severe pain or suffering.

How does that work?
How do you beat a man's head with a brick with good intent?

Remember 1992, when "Football Williams" slammed Reginald Denny's head with a brick?

 Jay Bybee say this is NOT a crime, yet Football Williams 
 was sentenced to 30 years in prison - but then - he was Black.

Next time some ghetto scumbag beats a white tourist with a brick, what prevents the scumbag
from arguing, "Yes, I did it, but I had no intention to inflict pain or suffering?"

How does a jury decide THAT's a crime and what the Bush bastards did was not?
How do you convict a guy for doing EXACTLY what Bush's Justice Dept said was legal?

Quotes

"This past weekend our Commander in Chief displayed some real presidential sac. I say Hail to the Beef . 
He steered America out of dangerous waters and helped her escape some pretty unsavory characters. 
No, not the pirates. I'm talking about the Bill of Rights lovers who keep humping the leg of habeas corpus...
You see, the president is fighting a federal court's ruling that the detainees at Afghanistan's Bagram Air Force 
base have the right to habeas corpus, that they have the right to challenge their detention. But he's just following 
the long-standing principle of American justice - Guilty until proven forgotten about. Now, this is essentially the 
same stance taken by George Bush with one important difference, Obama makes the kids like it. Now, I don't 
know why he's denying them habeas corpus, I can only assume the guys they've got  detained over there did 
something really unforgivable like remind Obama he was once a professor of constitutional law. That is cold."

"Bill thought he was the President, too." 


The Torturersí Manifesto
  by the whore editorial board at the NYWTimes

 Link

 Excerpt:
To read the four newly released memos on prisoner interrogation written by George W. Bushís Justice Department is to take a journey into depravity.

Their language is the precise bureaucratese favored by dungeon masters throughout history. They detail how to fashion a collar for slamming a prisoner 
against a wall, exactly how many days he can be kept without sleep (11), and what, specifically, he should be told before being locked in a box with 
an insect - all to stop just short of having a jury decide that these acts violate the laws against torture and abusive treatment of prisoners.

In one of the more nauseating passages, Jay Bybee, then an assistant attorney general and now a federal judge, wrote admiringly about a contraption 
for waterboarding that would lurch a prisoner upright if he stopped breathing while water was poured over his face. He praised the Central Intelligence 
Agency for having doctors ready to perform an emergency tracheotomy if necessary...

These memos make it clear that Mr. Bybee is unfit for a job that requires legal judgment and a respect for the Constitution. Congress should impeach him. 
And if the administration will not conduct a thorough investigation of these issues, then Congress has a constitutional duty to hold the executive branch 
accountable. If that means putting Donald Rumsfeld and Alberto Gonzales on the stand, even Dick Cheney, we are sure Americans can handle it.

After eight years without transparency or accountability, Mr. Obama promised the American people both. His decision to release these memos 
was another sign of his commitment to transparency. We are waiting to see an equal commitment to accountability.

A Truth Commission on Torture is Needed
 Let's give the job to Lee Hamilton - again

 Link

 Excerpt:
Obama did the right thing this week when he ordered the release of Justice Department memos that the Bush bastards
used to justify CIA torture of Al Qaeda prisoners in its custody.

The president and Atty. Gen. Eric Holder also were correct when they not only renounced any future recourse to torture, 
but said there will be no prosecutions of the officers who did so under orders and believed their actions were legal.
The president is whistling past the graveyard, though, when he insists that this is "a time for reflection, not retribution." 
Without facts, reflection is little more than daydreaming. That's why Pat Leahy is right to call for a truth commission 
that can render an accurate historical accounting of the executive branch's shameful conduct over the last seven years.


"I'll rubbert stamp anything."

A truth commission is important because of the public rhetoric of the Bush bastards -- the very ones who pushed so hard 
behind closed doors for permission to torture and who have argued so strenuously that the legal memos ought to remain secret.

FOX Explains Tea Parties

 Link

 Excerpt:
As for this week's tea parties, few people seemed to have any idea what, exactly, the events were meant to protest.

Even Fox News, which served as both quarterback and head cheerleader for the protests, had trouble explaining what 
the attendees were upset about, and what they wanted. They were angry, Fox told us -- but angry at what? Some were 
angry about taxes, or (typically unspecified) spending, or Washington, or (purely imaginary) attempts to repeal the
Second Amendment. Others just seemed angry at the wind. In Texas, some members of the "Party of Lincoln" 
even began talking about seceding from the United States.

One thing was clear: They were angry. Fox News' Neil Cavuto made that clear during an exchange with Bill O'Reilly:
"They're annoyed at everybody. ... There is a palpable rage here. ... These were a lot of average folks who 
said they were sick of it. ... They're just very angry. They don't like being laughed at. They don't like being 
joked about. They're average folks who want to just be treated like average Americans who are angry."

(Presumably, the people who don't like being laughed at were not the people who walked around with bags of tea 
dangling from the frames of their glasses.)

Reagan's deregulation

 Link

 Excerpt:
Reaganís massive deregulation was the key to generate great wealth over a short period of time without regard to consequence.
The Reaganiteís desire to return to post Roosevelt governance was the birth of unpatriotic greed. The Reaganites were so intent
on destroying all federal social programs such as SS, they purposively spent heavily on military and other dead end money pools
to create a massive federal debt liability. Their intent was to spend so much at the federal level all social programs would have to
be discontinued for the US to stay solvent. The Social Security Fund was and is the republican grail of privatization nirvana.

All that money lying around just waiting to be acquired. For those who still remain lukewarm on the issue, think of this. The republican
politicians have never argued that Social Security tax should cease, they argue that the taxes should go to a private entity for individual
taxpayer investment. We see what deregulation has brought to the financial markets, that is social security waiting to happen if we allow
any form of social security modification, privatization or reforms. And you wondered why Grover Norquist worships Reagan.

 Subject: Obama 

I voted for Obama in the Florida primary ( even though I was told my vote would not count ), 
I voted for him for President. I contributed to his campaign and knocked on doors for him. 
That being said, I must express my dismay at his decision not to investigate those 
that tortured in my name per the Bush memos that were released this week,

The entire defense used by those tried at Nuremburg centered around two issues. 
(1) "I did not know what was going on" and (2) "I was only following orders." 
Demjanjuk said as much in his deportation hearing. His defense was that he did not know 
those evil acts occurred at Sobibor and what ever he did he did because he was following orders.

I have always accused my friends that are"loyal Bush supporters" for the past 8 years 
of not holding Bush accountable for his Unconstitution actions. They, not I, allowed Bush 
to drive this country into the ditch.

Since I am an Obama supporter it is my duty as a citizen NOT to defend his decisions 
that are so boneheaded as this decision not to investigate, bring charges if warranted, 
hold trials and allow justice to take its course. Torture is against the law.
 Mike
 

Mike, you're not alone, but maybe it's deeper than that.

I'm disappointed, too, but Obama has more facts (and is tons smarter) than you and me.
What if his only option is putting a spotlight on Bush's crimes?

Maybe we could do the South African thing here:
Confess your crimes, all of them, ON THE RECORD AND IN PUBLIC, and we'll get past this.
But anything you try to hide - and get caught on - you're charged with and you do the time.

But if I know our sissfied Democrats, they'll say "That's much too harsh."

 I don't know a lot about boats, but surely our satellites and jet fighters can tell the difference
 between a slow-as-Bush fishing boat and a 5-man speedboat designed to attack a big ship.

I mean, one is big and slow and designed to carry tons of fish

and the other is about the size of a bass boat.

Why is this boat fifty miles offshore of Somalia?

 Subject: Tea baggers and tax protesters

Bart,  Iíve been thinking about all the calls for secessesion from Texas and Georgia and other southern states and I say let them go. 
But before they do we should close down ALL the military bases and move them to northern states that want to stay in the union. 
Not only military bases but VA hospitals, USDA offices, national parks and other federally operated offices. 

Note: Moving Big Bend National Park will be expensive.

Then we need to go through and blow up every dam and reservoir that was created by the TVA and WPA during the depression 
using US federal money, we wouldnít want them to taint themselves with having to get water from a corrupt system.  And of course 
Texas can start patrolling their own border with Republic of Texas money, they can land their planes with Republic of Texas money,
they can keep up the national parks and dams using Republic of Texas money.  Iím sure Rick Perry already has this all figured out.

You see everyone thinks that reconstruction ended in the 1800ís, but it hasnít.  The south got (and still gets) all those military bases 
and federal offices in order to create jobs for a poor region.  The south sucks on the teat of the government more than any other part 
of the country and this is never truer than the state of Texas.  If they want to threaten to leave the union they should realize that a large 
chunk of their employment comes from the federal government.  So I say let them leave, we could certainly use the jobs up here in 
the north.  They can start paying their own way for a change.  And if the people in the south think taxes are bad now, try it without 
all the government handouts they are currently getting.

I pay my taxes gladly each year because I figure itís a small price to pay to live in the greatest country in the world. 
Those that donít want to pay their taxes are, in my mind, un-patriotic.

Angry - Obama not prosecuting torture

 Link

 Excerpt:
Human rights groups and torture victims expressed disappointment Friday with Obama's decision
not to prosecute CIA operatives who used torture on helpless victims, many of whom were innocent.

Obama sought to turn a page on what he called "a dark and painful chapter" with his announcement a day earlier.
He condemned torture while promising to let the trotruers go free, pissing off a lot of people.  The decision left some
bitter in the Muslim world, where there was widespread anger over abuse of detained terror suspects. It could tarnish
Obama's growing popularity among Arabs and Muslims, who have cheered his promises to close Gitmo and leave Iraq.

"All of us in Guantanamo never had hope or faith in the American government," said Jomaa al-Dosari, a Saudi who spent
six years being tortured at Gitmo. "We only ask God for our rights and to demand justice for the wrongs we experience
in this life. There will be a time in history when every person who committed a wrong will be punished."
 

So - why did Obama bother with that lofty inaugural speech and "unclenching fists" if he was going to do this?
Why did he bother making his first interview with Al Jazeera if he was going to turn a blind eye to the torturers?

I realize that he's stuck - he's either got to piss off the Muslim world or 45% of America, but deep down,
aren't most Republicans against torturing the innocent hoat herders?

I have no idea what that's like - I guess you don't, either. 
What's it like being tortured for hour after hour, day after day, week after week, 
month after month, year after year?  How does the human brain cope with that?

Seems like the humane thing would be to allow the innocent to commit suicide - but there was no way
the prisoners can, so they had no choice but to put up with it,  hour after hour, day after day, week after week,
month after month, year after year - and *my* president is OK with letting the sadistic bastards off the hook?
 

But, as always, I have to remember the important question, "Compared to who?"
However bad the torturing was, it has stopped.
Things are certainly better than they were under torturer Fuhrer Bush.

Bart,

Who pissed in Keith's Triple A-Rod Latte?

The one guy I thought may see that a little diplomacy might come in handy, has already, after fewer than
90 days in office, called Obama a conspirator in the BFEE handiwork of the last eight years.

Sure investigating the Cheney years is important, but not before we can make sure that people keep their jobs and homes.
WERE I BEEN AS THEY HAD TO DO,  (Is that a rhetorical landmine you just laid there?) 
I would focus on straightening shit out for everyone first, then get some payback.

Is Keith just a liberal George Will? A baseball expert blowhard?  Or does the fact that
he has to be a blowhard compel him to seem like a stick of deep-fried shit?

Speaking of which, I'll bet a bottle of Chinaco that Keith will be the new John Madden.
At least you never let me down.
Ed Schultz's TV show is a fucking disaster as well.
Too bad my friend who was a VP of Talent Development for Disney got laid off.

We was so close.

 Subject: Your comments on USA Today

Bart,

When I read your comments about  USA Today not "giving" their customers what they want, followed immediately by your plea
for comtributions, the irony was inescapable.  Know what?  Someone who reads USA Today for free is not really a customer of theirs.
The people who buy hard copies are customers.  You comment, i.e. complain,  that only 2% of your readers contribute.
I would bet that even a smaller percentage of those who read USA Today online contribute to USA Today.  Yet you call them bastards
for not giving you their entire publication online for free.  I believe you also have content, what you call Bartcop Radio, that you only
provide to paying customers.  Doesn't that make you a bastard because you don't give away everything for free.  If not, why not?

 Dave, boy - I'd hate to be you right now.

 Say, do you have a digital camera nearby? I'd like to try an experiment.
 Point the digi-cam at your face and I'll tell you when to snap it.

 Right now the facts are chomping at the bit to kick your ass.

 I'll bet it was an accident that you missed this part:

> One of the worst offenders us USA Whore Today.  I'll read something, then I'll want to put it on the page
> so I search for it online - but it's not there and I'll be damned if I'll spent half a day re-typing an entire story.

 What does that tell a sharp guy like yourself?

 If I can't find a USA Today story online - where did I find it?

 C'mon, let that giant light bulb appear over your head.

 I subscribe to USA Today - how else would I know to search for a certain story online?
 I don't have time to re-type what's in my ink-stained hand - that's what pisses me off.

 Quick - SNAP THAT DIGI-CAM RIGHT NOW!!
 

 Gotcha.

 Subject: GM dealers

Regarding the rant from Danny -  I have two American cars I love, a 1999 Tahoe and a 2006 Buick.
Both are really nice cars, but I wonít buy American again. Why?  The dealerships.

They lie and promise you anything to get you to buy, and then when you go to pick up the car
expecting that piece of trim to be tightened down or that auto start installed, they tell you sorry
when they canít do it, and you canít return the brand new car but theyíll buy it back as ďusedĒ.

Then the service department canít fix anything under warranty to save their lives.
They canít even find the problem even though 4 other casual observers noticed it
Ö.and suddenly, when itís out of warranty they can figure it outÖwith a hefty price tag.
Sorry GMÖitís not you; itís your dealers that suck.
 Jim in Topeka
 

The last time I bought GM was a 1987 Cutlass Supreme.

I paid extra for a bumper-to-bumper warranty that was good for a year.
After 11 months, I took my car back to the dealer with 14 complaints.
They told me one of my 14 complaints was covered on my bumper-to-bumper warranty.

That was the last time I bought GM.

With Honda and Toyota, after 11 months we had no complaints.

Reminder: The GOP spent all last summer praising Obama
in an effort to prevent Hillary from becoming president.

Now that he's won - he's Hitler?

Where are all those clips praising him from Pigboy,
Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity and Bill O'Reilly?

Hi Bart! 
Keeping the hammer flying, like always

Greeting from dusty Iraq again! 
It's spring, so we have the spring sandstorms to deal with. 
It just plain gets nasty.  I'm glad the govt got rid of that problem in the US, 
you have to wonder if the wingers think we DESERVED the dustbowl? 
Keep on hammering, 
 MadSat
 

Dude, thanks - and be careful out there.
