White House Choreographed Torture Sessions

ABC has a bombshell tonight about how Cheney and other top Bush administration officials would sit at the White House and decide exactly how Muslim detainees would be tortured. 

ABC noted: “The high-level discussions about these ‘enhanced interrogation techniques’ were so detailed, these sources said, some of the interrogation sessions were almost choreographed — down to the number of times CIA agents could use a specific tactic.”

Sitting around a table and deciding how many times each Muslim detainee can be whacked up side the head sounds like the ultimate NeoCon masturbatory fantasy.

Even prize-Constitution stomper John Ashcroft had qualms about the meetings, reportedly warning, “History will not judge this kindly.”

What does it take to get someone indicted for war crimes in this country any more?

    Maybe if El Commanderosaguy and Stint the Impaler took Steroids before playing a game of softball on the White House Lawn, there would be an indictment or two but aside from that, war crimes …we don’t need no stinken war crimes.

    I reckon the only real peril Americans face is tainted baseball statistics.

    What a piece of work these thugs in the White House (and their enablers in Congress) are. Give me an honest mafia don to run the show. At least he’ll be up front on swindling the public and occasionally taking a few out of the herd for examples’ sake.

    Yeah, it’s no surprise that spanking the monkey would be a favorite sport in the White House. Maybe that’s what the Medals of Freedom were for, the winners of the “spank off”.

    …Bad news, couldn’t think of worse really. Bottom line is: If they can torture those assholes? Then they can torture you…after all, it’s legal, Why? Dirty Dick Cheney told John Yoo to say so so…Have a nice day.

    AlpoWolf – I always wondered why those durn Medals of Freedom looked so glossy.

    The voice of the distant CIA operative sounded confused and timid. “This is your baby. Go do it,” screamed Commandant Rice as she adjusted her monocle and nervously caressed the smooth leather of the holster holding her sidearm. She then turned to face Generalissimo Cheney. His haughty sneer indicated that he approved of her sinister order.

    Just like everything else the thugs in the White House do these days, this story got a little attention and then has basically faded away in the mainstream media. Our country’s mainstream media outlets are utter jokes now. Thank God for the free and neutral Internet (until the ATT-Bush cartel steals control of it).

    Kinda makes Bob Dylan read like a prophet:

    Well, John the Baptist after torturing a thief

    Looks up at his hero the Commander-in-Chief

    Saying, “Tell me great hero, but please make it brief

    Is there a hole for me to get sick in?”

    The Commander-in-Chief answers him while chasing a fly

    Saying, “Death to all those who would whimper and cry”

    And dropping a bar bell he points to the sky

    Saving, “The sun’s not yellow it’s chicken”

    …Bob Dylan nee Zimmerman, was a fraud.

    The best part about this “bombshell” is that it received far less of a response than the ‘breaking news” about nekid gurls reflected on the sunglasses of Torquecheney…..All major networks broadcast this story on the nightly news with all manner of conjecture and it was really a reflection of the boy’s hand and arm casting a fishing rod.

    Exactly what shred of sanity and independent thinking is left?

    The Neo-Weimar goose steps right along
