Condi: With US or Against US on Torture

This quote from Condi Rice is probably worth recording:
The US does not use the airspace or airport of any country for the purpose of transporting a detainee when we believe he or she will be tortured.
Rice also said:
With respect to detainees, the US complies with its laws, its Constitution and its treaty obligations... The US has fully respected the sovereignty of other countries that have cooperated in these matters. The US is a country of laws. The US must protect its citizens.
Yeah, about that "protecting citizens" thing, Condi...
The 9/11 Commission released its final report on Monday, outlining an array of shortcomings in the government's response to the 2001 terrorist attacks and calling overall progress disappointing...
On the one hand, Bush's cabalists want to terrify the world into abandoning civil rights, using the threat of terrorism as a justification. On the other hand, they don't really care too much about spending money on protecting their own citizens, because they know that the threat is not really as dangerous as it appears (since they themselves fix the cherry-picked intelligence and massage it through the media to inflate and distort the terror threat). You can't have your cake and eat it, guys...

Aha, Gandhi, that's where you are wrong. They CAN have their cake and eat it too. And they've been doing it all along. Only trouble is, it's OUR cake. Or at least it used to be.

But my main point is that they can tell any damned lie they please any day of the week, regardless of whether it contradicts yesterday's lie, UNLESS the major media are going to pin them for it ... and so far this is exactly what the media have failed to do.

And that's one of the reasons why blogs such as yours are so important. Please keep up the great work.
