REAL TORTURE YIELDS FAKE FACTS SO BUSH CAN MAKE REAL WAR
United States' captive Ibn al-Shaykh al-Libi, not to be confused with Scooter "What-Kind-of-a-Name-Is-That-for-a-Grown-Man?" Libby, while being tortured in Egypt at the behest of the USA, affirmed that there was a relationship between Al Qaeda and Iraq.
Later, when he was not being tortured, he stated that the statement he made under torture was not true, but had been coerced by torture--that is, the torturee said what his captors wanted him to say, in order to stop the torture from continuing.
So, in order to prop up its flimsy, pathetic, pathological case to invade Iraq (which was really about solving Preznit Toad-Exploder's Oedipal conflicts), we tortured someone until he said what we wanted him to say, which he did, until we stopped torturing him, when he ceased to say what we wanted him to say. Got that?
Once Libi was at the mercy of the pro-torture Egyptians, he suddenly began making new, specific, politically useful assertions: that Iraq trained Al-Qaeda members "to use biological and chemical weapons."
Later, these coerced assertions began making their way into pre-war pro-war statements by Dick Cheney, Colin Powell, and other senior officials, reaching their zenith when President Bush asserted in October 2002 that "we've learned that Iraq has trained Al Qaeda members in bomb making and poisons and gases."
Yuh, well, rip my fingernails out, buddy, and I'll tell you that up is down, too.
Oh, I forgot. This is Bushworld. Up IS down. War IS peace.
And . . . Big Brother loves you.
