The Torturous Path of Liarsposted by The Vidiot @ 1:20 AM Permalink
Scott Hennen [R-Limbaugh wannabe] Would you agree a dunk in water is a no-brainer if it can save lives?I'll just ignore the fact that the question was a fluffier softball than Jim Guckert finds in a reach around. The 'dunk in water' that these bastards are referring to is 'water boarding.' A form of torture that drowns the victim just short of death until they'll say anything to make it stop. Salem used it in the 1600's to make witches confess. How appropriate for the Hollween season.
THE VICE PRESIDENT: It's a no-brainer for me, but for a while there, I was criticized as being the Vice President "for torture." We don't torture.
And as big a lie that the "we don't torture" remark is concerned, it's backed up by an even greater lie "The Bush administration has agreed to apply the Geneva Conventions to all terrorism suspects in U.S. custody"
Here is what the Geneva Conventions say:
(c) Outrages upon personal dignity, in particular humiliating and degrading treatmentAnyone else remember when 'name, rank & serial number' was the standard that we expected our prisoners of war expected to be held to?
Bushco says 'we don't torture', 'we apply the Geneva Conventions' but they are lying. Secret prisons, not allowing the Red Cross access to or even names of our prisoners, killing and torturing these secret prisoners, are all against the Geneva Conventions!
