Waterboarding … six times a day for a month. That’s the lasting legacy of the Bush/Cheney adiministration, as the snow of our long winter of discontent melts away and all manner of new info seeps and oozes out disgustingly. It’s what many of us thought was happening. No, actually worse. But the lying skunks are being revealed for what they are/were – and the Coulters and Limbaughs and Cheneys and Foxes of the political landscape are decompensating before our very eyes.
The Senate and the Justice Department are stepping up to the plate … as they should in a government of checks and balances. Imagine – it’s all working again! Here are a few of Carl Levin’s comments on the senate report (you can read more at the link) … I’m rushing off … sorry!
In my judgment, the report represents a condemnation of both the Bush administration’s interrogation policies and of senior administration officials who attempted to shift the blame for abuse – such as that seen at Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo Bay, and Afghanistan – to low ranking soldiers. Claims, such as that made by former Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz that detainee abuses could be chalked up to the unauthorized acts of a “few bad apples,” were simply false.
What cowards and liars they are. And self righteous, to boot. Scum. Let the snow continue to melt … and their deeds be uncovered and put on full display in the spring sunlight!
