Of course Gitmo is for torture
If I may take a fraction of your precious attention--consumed as your attention must be by the latest extremely accurate coverage of the late, great Anna Nicole Smith's hatred of Catholics--I'd like to talk about torture. Vanity Fair:
The whole purpose of setting up GuantÃ¡namo Bay is for torture. Why do this? Because you want to escape the rule of law. There is only one thing that you want to escape the rule of law to do, and that is to question people coercivelyâ€”what some people call torture. GuantÃ¡namo and the military commissions are implements for breaking the law. Why build a prison here when there are plenty of prisons in Nebraska? Why is it, when we see photos of Abu Ghraib, we think that it is "exporting GuantÃ¡namo"? That it is the "GuantÃ¡namo method"? â€”Lieutenant Commander Charles Swift to the author, January 2007.
Nice to see the all the coverage of ... Oh, wait! Look! Over there! Foul-mouthed bloggers! Fuck!
If the country survives Bush and the Republicans, Charles Swift will one day be known as the hero he so clearly is.
