If you are conservative. If you are a patriot.
If you believe in the sanctity of the Constitution, if you believe in "Liberty and Justice for All," you are a conservative and a patriot. Because those are the principles and laws our nation was founded on 222 years ago and the principles and laws that the radical administration in Washington has chosen to destroy.
If you are a patriot and a conservative, you will be sickened by this:
"Red Cross investigators concluded last year in a secret report that the Central Intelligence Agency’s interrogation methods for high-level Qaeda prisoners constituted torture and could make the Bush administration officials who approved them guilty of war crimes.
"The International Committee of the Red Cross declared in the report, given to the C.I.A. last year, that the methods used on Abu Zubaydah, the first major Qaeda figure the United States captured, were “categorically” torture, which is illegal under both American and international law.
"The book says Abu Zubaydah was confined in a box “so small he said he had to double up his limbs in the fetal position” and was one of several prisoners to be “slammed against the walls."
You can read more beginning July 15 when “The Dark Side: The Inside Story of How the War on Terror Turned Into a War on American Ideals,” by Jane Mayer is released.
Citing unnamed “sources familiar with the report,” Ms. Mayer wrote that the Red Cross document “warned that the abuse constituted war crimes, placing the highest officials in the U.S. government in jeopardy of being prosecuted.”
PS: I believe that if the current administration were to last through 2012 or 2016, this post would be removed by that administration and I would be harassed, audited, threatened or imprisoned.
This would be easy. A logarithm would be created to search the web for "charged" words. They would be filtered and dissent would be cleansed.
