If the President is not bound by the aggreements and laws of the national he is governing then what is the fucking point of having a Geneva Convention?
This latest bullshit that Bushes lawyers investigated how to scoot around torture laws and regulations – this is not a few dumb shit kicks in Abu Ghraib – this is systemic disregard for any process or decency. Evidently, if you are the president and you condone torturing someone it is not torture because that is not something the president is allowed to do.
He is merely helping to defend the country. So if it isn’t torture – what the hell is it? This is like the arguments that Guanatanamo Bay is not under military jurisdicition or American jurisdiction – and not Cuban jurisdiction – it is a lawless state – does anyone else think that that is a completely stupid and irresponsible idea?
Please, Bush-fans out there – explain to me how you can stand by such a grossly negligent and disgusting arrogant administration? I’m not asking you to be for Kerry – but how can you truly be for Bush? Do you really not find his actions morally repugnant? Tell me what I am blind to – please.
And now with that new hostage in Saudi Arabia they are going to jump up and down about POW treatment and hostages and the Geneva Conventions – all the while wiping the blood of their mouths with that same document.
The war crimes just keep a-comin’.
