    Built by a subsidiary of Halliburton?
    And, how many times were the Taxpayers double and triple billed AFTER they were given the No-Bid Contract??

    I want a dip in the Blood and Oil Pool. Then a dance thru the piles of dead Iraqis. The Bush Depression Exhibit is also on my list.

    Bush is a war criminal if he leaves the country we will be arrested.

    Proof that Bush, Jr was one of our smartest and best presidents. What other presidents (well, maybe Grant and Harding) were smart enough to award such lucrative contracts to their Friends (who must have given them ample baksheesh). They should add Bush, Jr to Mt Rushmore after such outstanding accomplishments!!!

    Actually, I have a problem with Mr Sargent: Executive Order, Congressional Resolution, and Supreme Court opinion has clearly stated that NOTHING ordered by the US government can EVER be called ‘torture’.


    The rack, thumbscrews, electrodes to the genitals, the Chinese Water Enhanced Interrogation, & etc. & etc. all are perfectly legitimate and legal methods for US interrogators to use on prisoners if authorised by an appropriate senior executive, and CANNOT be called ‘torture’.


    The word ‘torture’ must be reserved for actions by enemies of the US: if they did ANY of those things, it would clearly be a Capital offence, and the US would have every right to execute them as slowly and painfully as possible, and this would be simple IVSTICE.

    Actually, that’s true. Cheney is almost entirely absent, except in videos where he’s standing near Bush and they couldn’t cut him out. W did finally get THAT one right! Maybe he finally managed to look into Cheney’s soul.

    Sorry, Wabbit. That simply isn’t true.

    Please look here: http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/gavin-magrath/george-bush-war-criminal_b_2138057.html
    .
    Quoted therefrom:
    1) In fact, the Supreme Court of the United States has found that the Guantanamo system was a violation of US and international law.
    2) …Bush is now not just a suspect but a convicted war criminal, having been convicted in absentia by a Malaysian Court.

    How come there’s a tarp over the 2009 big payoff to the banks wing?

    Also convicted were Rumsfeld, Gonzales, Yoo, Bybee, Addington and Haynes. The court admits that it has no international standing and that the convictions were only declaratory in nature and that the tribunal has no power of enforcement or power to impose any custodial sentence on any of those convicted. The tribunal that tried him also is not recognized by any Malaysian court and the convictions are only symbolic. (huffpost forgot the rest of the story) I guess you could say all of the defendants were sort of convicted….sort of.

    The human rights activists that managed to get this done to Bush in Malaysia have had no success in Germany, Canada, Spain, Switzerland, or the International Criminal Court in obtaining indictments. This same group wants to get Obama for extra judicial killings.

    As for “the Supreme Court of the United States has found that the Guantanamo system was a violation of US and international law.” the only thing that I could find was a decision by the Court that the detainees had the right to challenge their detention in civil court. Is this the decision that the huffpost is referring to?

    Ms. Ima calling names again “brain dead” is a good one. How long did you wrack your brain for that little jewel? Did it really enhance your argument? Illuminate a striking point? Made your comment solid in a factual way? I didn’t think so. It goes for those contrary to you too. Calling names is poor form and is the junk in arguments signifying a lack of vision and cogent thoughts.
