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.

Thanks for keeping us up to date on the torture issues- I wish the main stream was covering this- not beating it on a large drum day and night- but no they are still kissing bubble boy's ass...pumping up the Iraq Election..."war on terra" crap. So how long do all of us have to keep reading foriegn press and Truthout to learn the Rendition truth??? and why did start in Dec 2001? And when is the UN going to charge them- dickw scum with War Crimes and Crimes Against humanity ?and what can we do to help them?

Keep making a stink, acting as if the issue of torture were as important as it is.

Good that Bubble Boy backed down on the McCain thing.

So B-Boy backed down about torture- gee are we happy ???- maybe we should have parties celebrating his "compassion"...I know the blogs are on fire about the torture, NSA spying, the pentagon spying on scary people- ie. the Quakers ( I can only presume Buddhists are on the list? right? I am a Quaker Buddhist- so I am sure that makes me a Double Threat....)
But I am serious how do we get the MSM to get off their asses to report the Truth? or we all be sitting in Gitmo sharing a paper cup before they wake up?

Ugh. And yeah, apparently we have to read the press from other countries to find out about our own!
