Bush White House-approved interrogation techniques amounted to "war crimes."

    Who's surprised?

    Everyone knew that the Bush administration engaged in torture...despite the denials. Even the administration's 'tortured logic' (no pun intended) about detainees not being prisoners of war (and therefore not subject to the Geneva Convention's restrictions on torture), and John Yoo's memo's outlining why 'enhanced interrogation techniques' didn't violate the US Constitution, US treaties, and US laws did nothing more than make a mockery of our laws and stated ideals by simply attempting to rationalized (and legalize) illegality. I think that the Bush administration's attempts to destroy all copies of Zelikow's memo is acknowledgement enough of that fact.

    Let the conservative apologists begin their usual spin. Then when they're done doing that, they can again start up with their argument that President Obama is a thug.

    Terrorists have no rights. When facing an unconventional enemy we need to do what we have to do to gain any and all information necessary to protect our nation,interests,and people.
    I support interring any and all that pose a threat,and once guilt and information extracted,then kill those people. Send them back to their allah,and then they can fuck their 72 virgins all they like.

    I think you might just be a terrorist, therefore you have no rights. See how that works? It's simple. It doesn't require any proof. It doesn't require evidence, or due process, or even a trial.

    I'm sure Obama has it covered with plausible deniability.

    This is illustrative of conservatives’ contempt for the rule of law, where ‘the ends justify the means,’ as practiced by GWB, his father before him, Reagan before that, and ultimately Nixon.

    And a future republican administration will be just as likely to engage in the same illegal practices, using the same justification.
