Bush asks Congress to make his crimes legal.
He was on the hill lobbying for legislation that would allow his government to “reinterpret” the Geneva conventions on the torture of prisoners as well as making it legal for kangaroo courts where accused men could be found guilty and executed without ever being told the evidence against them.
Who does this man think he is? What country does he think we are? What moral human being can possibly look at the facts here and not be outraged. Thank God, 15 Senators on the Intelligence Committee have said no. Even the “rubber-stamping” republicans on this panel couldn’t let this one go buy. Apparently they too need to sleep at night.
Speaking of sleeping at night, Colin Powell who resigned from this inept and immoral administration in a letter to John McCain had this to say:
“The world is beginning to doubt our moral base of our fight on terrorism to redefine Common Article III would add to those doubts. Furthermore, it would put our own troops at risk."
I only have one disagreement with that statement, that is the word “beginning” they aren’t beginning to doubt Mr. Powell our moral authority is gone in most of the world’s eyes.
This fight isn’t over. Apparently Congress will debate both both the Intelligence Committee’s bill and the Chief Torturer’s bill.
There are no Ohioan's on the Armed Services Comittee but I will be watching how you vote on the Senate and House floor, Mike Dewine, Deborah Pryce, Pat Tiberi, and Dennis Hobson.
I assure you the voters in Ohio will know the results.
