"The United States is committed to the world-wide
elimination of torture and we are leading this fight by example. I call on all governments to join with the
United States and the community of law-abiding nations in prohibiting, investigating, and prosecuting all acts of
torture and in undertaking to prevent other cruel and unusual punishment. I call on all nations to speak out against
torture in all its forms and to make ending torture an essential part of

Excerpt: I can appreciate why Karl Rove is upset about
recent revelations about Bush's torture policies. After all, who wants
friends and colleagues to end up looking like
war criminals? Rove has a specific job to do: make Bush and his team look
while trying to destroy President Obama and his
team. The latest evidence puts Rove in a tougher position. Poor guy.
But that hardly excuses the kind of foolish rhetoric
Rove is throwing around. On Fox News (where else?), for example,
Rove said the administration's recent disclosures
about torture are 'very dangerous.' Rove insisted, 'What they've essentially
said is if we have policy disagreements with
our predecessors . . . We're going to turn ourselves into the moral equivalent
a Latin American country run by colonels in mirrored
sunglasses and what we're gonna do is prosecute systematically the
previous administration, or threaten prosecutions
against the previous administration, based on policy differences.
Is that what we've come to in this country?'
You see, in Rove World, the way to avoid becoming
a banana republic is to have a chief executive who ignores the rule of
They are stuck and they know it.
After 8 years of destroying the GOP, the Bush bastards are now asking
to become pro-torture to save them and I wonder if they're willing
to go that far.
The GOP is trying desperately to stage a comeback - but can they do
that by being pro-torture?
Hey Bart, if Texas if fed up with government inteference
and secedes, will they refuse foreign aid from the US?
Will they refuse military assistance since they
have no standing military for protection? How long before they will be
annexed by Mexico since they believe it to be
a part of their country anyway?
They should just be stocking up on all those assault
weapons going south because they will need them when there
is no US to protect their border and the drug
lords move in to operate freely. Just a few of the thoughts I have
about their being fed up with US government.
Where will they be without it?
Texas hasn't thought any of this through.
They're just throwing a tantrum like a nine-year
Excerpt: Sean Hannity had actor Charles Grodin on his
show tonight, and the two men actually had some
genuinely good natured sparring with each other
over the news of the week
GRODIN: You're for torture.
HANNITY: I am for enhanced interrogation.
GRODIN: You don't believe it's torture. Have you
ever been waterboarded?
HANNITY: No, but Ollie North has.
GRODIN: Would you consent to be waterboarded?
We can waterboard you?
GRODIN: Are you busy on Sunday?
HANNITY: I'll do it for charity. I'll let you
This will only work if the waterboarding
is done by somebody who hates Hannity.
The Right has portrayed waterboarding as cuffing
a man and sprinkling his chest with water,
which any six year old could do four hours without
The trick comes when the viictim actually believes
which won't work if Hannity's in a studio
giggling with his co-workers.
So expect a sham.
If they wanted to do this right, they'd blindfold Hannity, strip him
naked and turn him over to me in a barn far away from his friends. Real quick, Hannity would realize
he was in real danger and you
can bet your balls he would actually be afraid for his life because
I'd hold his head underwater until
he was forced to swallow. After I did that about 20 times, Hannity
would be my little bitch.
I give you my very best Nancy Grace Guarantee that Hannity would go
back to his studio
with an entirely new perspective on the meaning of waterboarding.
"Bush has very graciously kept his mouth shut,

Excerpt: In a saner world (or at least one that accurately
reported on original documents), all of this would be a point of pride
for the CIA.
It would serve as evidence of the Bush Administration's
scrupulousness regarding the life and health of the detainees,
and demonstrate how wrong are the claims that
harsh interrogations yielded no useful intelligence.
Instead, the release of the memos has unleashed
the liberal mob, with renewed calls in Congress for a "truth commission"
and even, perhaps, Judge Bybee's impeachment
and prosecutions of the other authors. Obama has hinted that
Administration won't prosecute CIA officials,
it may try to sate the mob by going after Bush officials who wrote the
One major concern here is what Obama's decision
to release these memos says about his own political leadership.
He claims that one of his goals as president
is to restore more comity to our politics, especially concerning national
He also knows he needs a CIA willing to take
risks to keep the country safe. Yet Mr. Obama seems more than willing to
indulge the revenge fantasies of the left, as
long as its potential victims served a different president.
In other words, it's unpatriotic to enforce the law. A few scrolls
above, Bush said,
"I call on all nations to speak out against
torture..." which is exactly what Obama is doing.
Bush knew he was committing crimes and he repeatedly said
"We do not torture." And now that he's been caught, the Whore Street Journal wants us to
believe that Bush is a decent, honest man?
"When the subject has anything to do with sex,
the right in America is the party of moral absolutes. We know what's right, we know what's wrong,
and even if there's a price to pay we can't shirk our responsibility to set a proper example and do the right thing.
But when the subject is torture, suddenly it's all about carefully weighing the costs and benefits. Having
an honest debate about how far we should go to protect ourselves. Understanding the context of what happened.
It's just not possible to flatly say that waterboarding and sleep deprivation and stress positions are barbarisms
unfit for use by a civilized country. It's much more complex than that. Funny how that works, isn't it?"

> So what explains America's refusal to buy
from GM, Ford and Chrysler?
For me it was this:
I had a GM for 3 years and replaced the transmission,
muffler, starter, alternator and catalytic converter.
I had a Chrysler for 2 years and replaced the
alternator, muffler, smog pump, CV joint, 2 clutches, and radiator.
I had a Ford for a year and a half and replaced
the transmission, timing belt, carburator, muffler, alternator,
and vacuum advance unit (wtf ever that is)
Then I had a Subaru for 10 years and drove it
until it had 200,000 miles on it and other
than routine maintenance it was in the shop exactly
once, for a broken tail light cover.
I never even bothered to change the oil until
it went 15 or 20 thousand miles.
I don't really give a crap where it was made,
I just want the thing to go when I need it to.

Excerpt: When he was vice president,
Dick Cheney never acknowledged the public's right to know anything. Now,
he has the full disclosure bug. He told Fox News
this week that President Obamaís decision to release memos written
by the Bush Justice Department authorizing the
abuse and torture of detainees inspired him to ask the Central Intelligence
Agency to release transcripts of those interrogations...
Cheney claims that the waterboarding saved thousands
of lives. Most accounts that don't come from officials involved in
the formation of those policies suggest that
that is not the case. The question needs to be answered so Americans can
decide if they want to buy into Mr. Cheney's
view that the ends always justify such barbaric means.
If torture works, if their methods got valuable
information from the al Qaeda guys,
why haven't they caught or killed Bush's former
oil partner, Osama bin Laden?
Excerpt: A man imprisoned after 9-11, as a suspected terrorist
was tortured in numerous secret CIA prisons before
Bush bastard memos allowing the practice had
even been written, according to a lawsuit filed in a federal court.
"Beginning in December 2001, [Rafiq] Alhami was
tortured repeatedly, the lawsuit claims," reported the Whore AP.
"The methods were varied: At different times Alhami
was stripped naked, threatened with dogs, shackled in painful
'stress' positions for hours, punched, kicked
and exposed to extremes of heat and cold. The suit also alleges Alhami's
interrogators sprayed pepper spray on his hemorrhoids,
causing extreme pain.
Like the Fascist dogs and Clinton's impeachment, these Bush bastards
were always going to
torture somebody. They just needed an excuse - and 9-11 showed
up and made their day.

"A war crime investigation does not look at
the people who drove the trains -- they look at the people who told the trains to roll. Bush and Cheney, the CIA
director, the attorney general ... implemented, in full knowledge that it was a war crime, the torture program. A
true war crime investigation would be given to a special prosecutor, who would follow it where it would lead him
or her. And that would most certainly lead him...or her to Bush and Cheney and the people like the CIA director and attorney
general who pushed through this program. God help us if the only thing we get out of this is a commission
modeled on 9/11." -- Jonathan Turley, Link

Excerpt: The CIA briefed top Democrats and Republicans
on the congressional intelligence committees more than 30 times
about Bush's torture schemes, according to intelligence
sources who said the lawmakers tacitly approved the techniques
that some Democrats in Congress now say should
land Bush administration officials in jail.
Between 2002 and 2006, the top Republicans and
Democrats on the House and Senate intelligence committees
"each got complete, benchmark briefings on the
program," said one of the intelligence sources who is familiar with the

it had to do was withhold funding," said the source.
Those who were briefed included Nancy Pelosi,

Sen. Shelby of Alabama and Rep. Peter Hoekstra of Michigan, all Republicans.
