Torture is torture – and “it cost hundreds if not thousands of American lives.”
Jesse Venture rips the Rethugs a new rectal orifice! Cutting through the Pelosi BS, Ventura points out that waterboarding is torture – the very same sort of torture we, as a country decried during the Vietnam War when it was done to our soldiers.
To be honest, Pelosi has been a lousy Democrat leader. If the Rethugs are sucessful in pulling her down – a lot of oflks on her side of the isle will cheer. I find it utterly amazing the Rethugs could impeach Clinton for a blow job, and the Dems couldn’t, and wouldn’t impeach the Dick for treason, and the Bushsquat for lying not only to Congress…
But the whole damn country.
With Rummy’s inclusion of bibilical quotes on the covers of Pentagon Briefings, it’s fairly plain that this country was in the thrall of our very own American Taliban. An American Taliban who sunk our country to the lowest levels in persuit of a self inflicted Jihad in Iraq, and who fractured or broke every law that inconvienced their immoral and brutal tactics.
The country is not going to push past this by covering it up. There needs to be a full and public accounting, complete with long jail terms for the guilty, and the purgatory of American Public Opinion for the abettors.
