    Wow. That last part just brings this to a new low. Lets commit crimes and cover our tracks so that another agency gets the blame.

    I think the administration should be tried for treason.

    i downloaded a few of the reports from the aclu site and this stuff is truly sickening. the fact that an executive order is referenced authorizing certain prohibited methods of torture is nothing less than reprehensible.

    damn the geneva convention...freedom is on the march.

    Is this stuff getting much media attention over there? Even if untrue, if something half as dodgy as this started getting spread around about blair in this country it would be all over the papers and TV news and Blair would be answering very difficult questions in public. He would still get away with it, but at least there would be a fuss. Any media frenzy going on there? If not I guess its solid proof that the 'liberal' media is a load of ********.

    Wow I didn't know the ACLU became the Iraqi Civil Liberties Union.

    Yeah, it's not like they have rights or anything! We went there to free them, after all. And they're going to get freedom... whether they want it or not.

    (God, I hope you were being sarcastic)

    BTW, anyone who's been paying attention isn't surprised at all. This has been the defense all along. "We were only following orders". Sure is a skewed idea you have of freedom there Georgie Boy.

    Guess the next argument is that they don't follow the Geneva rules, why should we. Oops, already tried that one. We'll better start attacking the liberal media for a couple of papers mentioning it briefly to deaf ears, or just preaching to the converted. It's not our fault we screwed up, it's the media's fault for uncovering what we've covered up. Yeah, they're the ones making us look bad. :rolleyes: Maybe you should, I don't know, not screw things up in the first place.

    Anyone else have a feeling something truly awful is about to happen?

    Something truly awful happens every day: it's just that until 9/11 it didn't happen to you. Welcome to the Reality Club. :)

    Sometimes I wish I could go back to being oblivious and not caring. Ignorance is bliss.
