Invictus has the details, but the "Camp Delta" torture policy from Guantanamo Bay has been posted online now. It's breathtakingly unadorned, and if a USAF commanding officer is willing to put a signature on this ... silk-wrapped excrement ... then impeachment is far too mild a fate for Bush, Cheney and their cohort of criminals, for not only have they destroyed our armed forces with their calumny, they have dishonored our officers and enlisted corps with their viciousness.

Since I've adopted Goldman Sachs as my parasite, I'm learning all sorts of interesting things about them! For example, in his capacity of Secretary of the Treasury, former Goldman Sachs CEO Hank Paulson might bail out Goldman Sachs.
