We do get off topic don't we? A White House panel proposes tax restructuring and major cuts to the services that we hold near and dear while the corporate owners of that government get off scott-free and nearly no one is taking notice.
this Iraqi war cost us billions of dollars and thousands of lives for what WOMD that never did exist.
WMD Sorry Jerry I don't know how to separate the you tube WMD lies it is on this link 2nd from the bottom.
The formula Bush used for invasion of Iraq and a unfounded war. 9/11, Al-Qaeda and Osama bin Laden.
He had the formula for the perfect storm. When he went after Saddam with the fever pitch of a mad dog....Osama bin Laden had to be dancing. America is now paying the price and yet many still can't see that America and the world was duped. sigh
Strange days indeed most peculiar Mama
What I'm curious to see is, what does the Justice Dept. do now that GW has admitted publicly to authorizing torture ?
We HAVE (maybe had) Treaties , ya know.
Since GW made his comment in his book and then in person on many interviews, I believe there is no way in he!! he will be prosecuted and convicted for torture. He KNOWS that!
I need to look into that Dave. Did GW say publicly he authorized torture? What I recall is he said after talking with his lawyers he allowed waterboarding. And somewhere in the past, he said waterboarding was NOT torture. I haven't found that yet.
BUSH: We believe America's going to be attacked again. There's all kinds of intelligence comin' in. And— and— one of the high value al Qaeda operatives was Khalid Sheik Mohammed, the chief operating officer of al Qaeda… ordered the attack on 9/11. And they say, "He's got information." I said, "Find out what he knows.” And so I said to our team, "Are the techniques legal?" He says, "Yes, they are." And I said, "Use 'em."
LAUER: Why is waterboarding legal, in your opinion?
BUSH: Because the lawyer said it was legal. He said it did not fall within the Anti-Torture Act. I'm not a lawyer., but you gotta trust the judgment of people around you and I do.
LAUER: You say it's legal. "And the lawyers told me."
Do you see an admission to using torture in that response?
Now do I believe GW authorized torture? You betcha. But legally, or so GW is confident that legally, waterboarding is not torture and he, the lawyer, and somewhere, they have law or stuff to back that up. That is what I believe too!!! We'll never convict him.
