“To call this a program of torture is to libel dedicated professionals”
– Dick Cheney
“I don’t want to say this – absolutely torture.”
– Eric “Mancow” Muller, conservative radio talk show host, after being subject to 6 seconds of waterboarding.
THIS IS A BIG DEAL, PEOPLE. WE WERE NOT PLAYING HARMLESS PRANKS ON ILLEGALLY DETAINED PRISONERS. WE WERE TORTURING THEM.
– and Dick Cheney knows better, which just proves that the bastard has no conscience. That he’s recently become the GOP’s posterboy for blatant revisionism further betrays an utter lack of human decency in that man.
AND THAT WAS FOR 6 SECONDS. HOW LONG DO YOU THINK PRISONERS AT GUANTANAMO ENDURED?
There can be no debate on this anymore. Muller had the testicular fortitude to actually go through with it – and he lasted 6 seconds. Perhaps said fortitude came from thinking that “waterboarding” was somehow harmless. Now one of the very same men who once belittled the act of waterboarding has turned around completely. It took a dose of reality and H20 to do it, but there it is.
THEY DON’T CALL IT TORTURE FOR NOTHING, DICK.
Enough with the bullshit. There was never any debate over it, the naysayers just made it seem that way – much like they do with global warming, and evolution. Only problem is that by the time they’ve decided to stop being ignorant pricks we will have already paid the price for their deceit and/or ignorance. There are no two sides to reality.
And in related news, Obama decides to indefinitely detain prisoners without trial. That’s on top of signing a bullshit Credit-Card Protection Bill that doesn’t even cap interest rates those dipshits are charging you, and continues to fight for universal health care that isn’t really universal – just a cheaper version of something we should be getting from a single-payer system in the first place. For all the change he talked about, he’s sounding remarkably…like a Democrat. The fuck did I expect, right? Fuck it, I’m voting Green and independent from now on – like I should have been doing.
PS: I know Keith Olbermann bats for the left, but truth has a funny way of being biased more towards liberals. When Bill O’Reilly says something that isn’t batshit insane, I’ll post some of his crap.
OK, this was great, too. The man speaks truth, what can I say?
