More American Shame: Kidnapping Children

I think this proves beyond all doubt that America has lost any sense of what we once stood for, we can no longer be trusted to know right from wrong, and America can rightfully be labeled a country of monsters with no moral grounding whatever. Completely both amoral and immoral.

American agents under order of president bush, one of the most despicable world leaders since Pol Pot and Idi Amin Dada and a scandalous coward, in my opinion, KIDNAPS THE CHILDREN OF SUSPECTED TERRORISTS TO AID IN TORTURING INFORMATION FROM THE ALLEGED TERRORIST. And though those agents and bush may claim that they don't actually torture the children themselves, I believe nothing would stop them from torturing a suspect's child in their bloodlust to obtain information.

There can be no justification for this. It is sick, twisted, perverse, ugly, dehumanizing, and a whole lot of other words I could apply to describe the abomination of taking and holding innocent children in confinement for use as an instrument of torture against alleged terrorists. I can imagine the sickening pictures of children in the custody of America and the prisoner, who may or may not be a terrorist, being shown the pictures with direct threats that their children will themselves be tortured if the suspect fails to confess.

We are no longer a nation of laws; we are not a nation of men; we have become the nation of yellow-bellied, cowardly, cruel and inhuman MONSTERS, takers and torturers of children. And don't even try to allege that snatching a child from their homes and taking them thousands of miles away from everything they have ever known for the purpose of torturing information from a parent is not itself, torture.

Jeralyn Merritt at Talkleft provides more detail on the 9 and 7 year-old children and how they were used as an instrument of torture by the CIA. One of the interrogators stated:
"His sons are important to him. The promise of their release and their return to Pakistan may be the psychological lever we need to break him."
Not in my wildest dreams could I ever envision myself being so embarrassed, humiliated, and ashamed to be an American.

The world watches. The world knows. Americans: Monsters. Can we sink any lower?
