What we say and what we do

The Bush administration continues to deny that it condones torture, or that it has sent detainees to countries for the express purpose of being tortured. To this end they have sent Condolesa Rice to Europe to deny these charges and to to explain how lawfully we have acted. Meanwhile back in the real world, the bill being put through congress by John McCain, that will legally end torture by the US, is being fought by the Bush administration. Hmmm.. If the Bush doesn't condone torture, then why is he fighting the enactment of this law. You see, not only does Bush condone torture, but the administration fights the act of legally and definitively defining it and outlawing it. Currently they can hide behind semantics and legalistic definitions of the word torture. Remember, this administration acts in the name of the people of the United States. We must not allow leaders of low moral standards and challenged ethics to let us to sink to the level of those we are purportedly at war against.

Hey, thanks for noticing my blog. Meanwhile, this torture issue is insane. On the one hand Condi told Europe that we don't torture. Meanwhile she supports Dubya's drive to legalize torture. She also says we don't "render" captives to other countries for torture. Meanwhile she admits we send people to other countries for questioning.

These people are insane.

And I think it actually affects the personal psychological well-being of individuals in this country to know that we are being ruled by psychopaths.
