The Torturer-in-Chief speaks about the Torture Meetings held in the White House.
Jay Bybee, one of the authors of the Torture Memo (here’s Part I and Part II) is now a federal appellate judge in San Francisco. The other asshole that helped write this memo, Yoo, is teaching our youth in the ways of the law at a prestigious college in Northern California.
One teaches, the other sits in judgment on the rule of law. Amazing no?
Well, when someone that is versed in the ethics of legal eagles, such as..oh, Stephen Gillers who teaches legal ethics at New York University School of Law writes a column for The Nation..I read it and weep. When Jonathan Turley, a professor of Constitutional Law, tells us that this reaches all the way up the executive ladder and has for years now, I weep. I weep that our country was taken down the wrong road by a couple of fucking nimrod’s that were rewarded for their breach of ethics, and some say their glaring lack of common sense, with a job teaching our youth and a federal judgeship. I really can’t believe this shit m’dear reader. But I digress..sorry.
Now, our Idiot-in-Chief has weighed in on this latest fresh hell wherein we find Bush’s top advisors and cabinet members sat around and discussed enhanced methods of interrogation..aka torture. From the ABC interview, via TPM:
“Well, we started to connect the dots, in order to protect the American people.” Bush told ABC New s White House correspondent Martha Raddatz. “And, yes, I’m aware our national security team met on this issue. And I approved.”...
Bush said the ABC report about the Principals’ involvement was not so “startling.“
To protect the American people ? Isn’t it more likely that all these memo’s were written to protect the ass of our Idiot-in-Chief and his fuckwitted minions? Isn’t it more likely that the Torture meetings were held to insure that everyone was ‘onboard’ with torturing and no defections would occur? Isn’t it more likely that they are all complicit because that way..they will continue to cover their own asses and that of the Idiot-in-Chief when it comes to war crimes and shredding our fourth amendment?
It’s like a blood oath..the kind that kids took when doing something that they knew they would get them trouble for. It’s a gigantic CYA for the war criminals that lead our nation..into the abyss.
