Bush Claimed Right to Waive Torture Laws

My Bush Claimed Right to Waive Torture Laws: "President Bush claimed the right to waive anti-torture laws and treaties covering prisoners of war after the invasion of Afghanistan, and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld authorized guards to strip detainees and threaten them with dogs, according to documents released Tuesday...."

George Washington would not have condoned this....Bobby Lee would not have implemented it.....Jesus Christ would condemn it.

Who else do we need as examples to finally figure out that the neo-cons and the liberals are opposite sides of the same evil coin?

This is not the way Americans behave. This is not the way the Southern mind thinks. This is not something we can on principle tolerate.

No matter who we fight and no matter what methods our enemies might use we are or SHOULD be guided by a higher law. Once we abandon that we sink into the level of barbarity that we so despise in others.
