Bush's Torture

This article is about a 2007 International Committee of the Red Cross, the organization that monitors violations of the Geneva Conventions, that prisoners were tortured under the Bush administration. This is bad on so many levels. First, it is against the principles that have guided this nation from its beginning. The United States has been a leader over its history in crafting treaties that prohibit such methods. Secondly, if we torture, it is more likely that our own soldiers will be tortured upon being captured. And, most importantly, professional interrogators DON'T USE IT BECAUSE IT DOESN'T WORK. Maybe the one being tortured will give you accurate information. More likely, he will tell you anything to make the torture stop. And the interrogator doesn't know what information is valid and what isn't.

No, the article is about made up accusations against Bush by idiots who hate America. Since there are no "CIA prisons" how the hell does the Red Cross know about what went on in non-existent facilities?


"First, it is against the principles that have guided this nation from its beginning."

No, it isn't you airhead bimbo, you haven't a fucking clue. The founding principles were about PUNISHMENT, not about using measures to gather information to protect US citizens.



" it is more likely that our own soldiers will be tortured upon being captured."

They ARE being tortured and killed you stupid cunt. American citizens are being BEHEADED live on video. Just how stupid can you get?



"professional interrogators DON'T USE IT BECAUSE IT DOESN'T WORK"

Which is why the Bush administration ISN'T using it, because it doesn't work. God you are so fucking stupid.
