Bush, Cheney and Torture
When I was growing up I was taught that we’re the good guys.
Our fathers literally saved the world from the bad guys in World War II.
The bad guys were animals. Savages. Inhuman monsters.
And our fathers stormed the beaches at Normandy and risked, and in many cases,
lost it all in order to protect The American Way.
We were the shining city on the hill.
We were what the rest of the world was striving to be.
The George W. Bush administration sanctioned and carried out torture.
They tortured human beings.
They rationalized it and justified it by saying it was to protect Americans...
But it doesn’t matter – we’ve become the bad guys.
Now this report confirms that President Bush, Vice President Cheney and their underlings
knew that it was torture and knew it was wrong and did it any way.
This report is proof of crimes having been committed.
If the shoe were on the other foot, the Republicans would not hesitate so long as a single heartbeat
- they would release the information and prosecute the “criminals” immediately and to the full extent of the law.
But the Democrats don’t DO that.
Because the Democrats still believe they are the good guys.
When OUR guy had a girlfriend, the Republicans impeached him.
When Bush lied 5,000 soldiers into their graves (not to mention the 35,000 maimed)
the Democrats sat there like the scared little mice they are.
