    This is what torture gets you. Unsubstantiated information that leads innocents into WAR. GWB and his minions are certainly not “innocents.” All of our killed and wounded as a result of this travesty of American power, might and false allegation are certainly innocent. Any continuation of this travesty by the liars and thieves to export their wills while ignoring genuine American interests and values is by definition fascism. There will be a judgement day and that is for certain. Connect the dots and see where you stand in this evil and totalitarian WAR.




    "LONDON (AFP) - An Al-Qaeda terror suspect captured by the United States, who gave evidence of links between Iraq and the terror network, confessed after being tortured, a journalist told the BBC.

    Iban al Shakh al Libby told intelligence agents that he was close to Al-Qaeda leaders Osama bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri and "understood an awful lot about the inner workings of Al-Qaeda," former FBI agent Jack Clonan told the broadcaster.

    Libby was tortured in an Egyptian prison, according to Stephen Grey, the author of the newly-released book "Ghost Plane" who investigated the secret US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) prisons that housed terror suspects around the world.

    US President George W. Bush confirmed the existence of the network of CIA holding facilities overseas during a September 6 speech defending controversial US interrogation practices."

    For some reason, I am not surprised.

    Kind of sums up my thinking on everything YOU post.

    You need to do more reading and less of your opinionated thinking. I''ve never posted or come close to embracing facsism. The current leadership in the USA comes as close to the definition of fascism as anything known in this world since WWII.


    But, you're another junior grade marine with the straw from the obstacle course still itching up his ass. What the heck do you know?

    Not much verifiable information in that short 12 paragraph article. Did Psycho write it?

    The information is there. Research it for yourself.

    Yes, it is there. Do you have no ability to research?

    What the F*** is "probably?"

    Dispute the facts or back out of the conversation.

    You initiated this thread.I read your entire link- there are no internal links. There are no verifiable facts in the article. It appears to be made up by this Stephen Grey, who is trying to sell his book. It looks like BS to me.:gay:
