October 27, 2008

The BBC are preparing to screen scenes of an actor being subjected to a controversial form of torture – waterboarding. The scenes, starring actor Richard Armitage, will be shown during the new series of popular show Spooks, which starts tonight.  >>>>>

Just adding to the further desensitization of the public toward waterboarding and torturing of people not considered American, or are deemed a threat to the U.S.

Bush White House ‘endorsed torture’

October 15, 2008

The Bush Administration explicitly endorsed torture techniques used by the CIA on al-Qaeda suspects, according to secret memos obtained by The Washington Post.  The Post has identified two documents sent by the White House to then CIA Director George Tenet in 2003 and 2004, endorsing controversial interrogation techniques such as ‘waterboarding’. >>>>>


Judge says gov’t must produce waterboarding memos

September 4, 2008

U.S. District Judge Alvin K. Hellerstein says the memos are “clearly responsive” to a lawsuit filed in 2003 by the ACLU and other civil rights groups seeking records on the treatment of prisoners in U.S. custody overseas.  >>>>>


Secret ‘torture memo’ gave legal cover to interrogators who acted in ‘good faith’

August 4, 2008

A Justice Department legal opinion issued in August 2002 advised the CIA that its interrogators would not be prosecuted for violating anti-torture laws as long as they acted in “good faith” while using brutal techniques to obtain information from suspected terrorists, according to a previously undisclosed memo released publicly last Thursday.  >>>>>

 I remember, as a former Marine, I had many discussions with younger Marines reminding them that they only had to follow “lawful orders.”  It’s a shame how those who disagreed used the argument that one was not patriotic enough, and the level of danger he would put other Americans if he chose to refuse orders.


John Conyers and the Constitutional Clock

July 26, 2008

…From the outset, Conyers and the Democrats in control of the House of Representatives, where Barr served as a Republican from 1995 until 2003, have done all they can to make sure the judiciary committee hearing, ironically entitled “Executive Power and Its Constitutional Limitations,” result anything but an impeachment hearing. It is completely understandable why — because the reputations of Conyers, Pelsoi, and the Democrats are not only on the line, they also stand to be criminally indicted along with Bush and his perfidious neocons. Democrats are up to their eyeballs in criminality.  >>>>>

Even in the Western Media, a true conspiracy is unfolding — too slowly if you ask me, spoken above the heads of the masses, because both Republican and Democratic Leaders face charges of maybe [war crimes, crimes against humanity, hijacking the constitution?].  I am starting to believe that Western leaders are against wearing hijab because the eyes are uncovered.

If there were only a way to get the majority of the Americans to understand the news at this level; for most people – it’s the Islamic terrorists who are destroying our country.
