Common Article 3..

April 11th, 2008 | by Dusty |

Vanity Fair has a long but worthy article up that goes to the heart of the torture debate. It has historical context as well as specialists in the field of torture and it’s effects on human beings. Common Article 3 is the section of the Geneva Conventions that deals with torture. They also tear into the torture log of detainee # 063 who we now know by his name; Mohammed al-Qahtani. From the article:

According to this log, the interrogation commenced on November 23, 2002, and continued until well into January. The techniques described by the log as having been used in the interrogation of Detainee 063 include all 15 approved by Rumsfeld.

That Rummy would approve torture just boggles my mind. It also brings up the question about exactly how much bullshit we were fed about the actions at Abu-Gharib being those of a few wingnuts..the wingnuts now perhaps being BushCo’s “Team Torture“. It’s a vital yet sickening view of how low our current administration has sunk.

    This is actually a photo Lisa of one of those terrorist beheadings…

    See… the liberals cry and whine over a little bit of water and a terry cloth towel to get someone to talk… the terrorists just lop reporter’s domes off with a little knife so they die painfully and slowly, with each sawing motion.

    The irony in that… The reporters usually work for the liberals, infecting our society with a bunch of bullshit lefty talk. You’d think they’d actually want to protect America’s interests so they can continue to be free to say what they want rather than have these people running our streets, kidnapping honest American people, fulfilling their American dreams as a journalist, like Daniel Pearl did before his demise at the hands of our terrorist friends.

    Ronald Reagan said it best…”It’s not that our liberal friends are ignorant, it’s just that they know so much that isn’t so”

    I rest my case…

    The French used torture extensively in Algeria and Vietnam, and it not only didn’t help them achieve their aims, the public’s reaction to it ended up nearly tearing their society apart. We appear to be more callous, but the world is paying attention.

    If you have to torture someone for three fucking months you have nothing..absolutely nothing to go on.
