cheney openly advocates torture

The Vice President for Torture.

It's not surprising that Mr. Cheney would be at the forefront of an attempt to ratify and legalize this shameful record. The vice president has been a prime mover behind the Bush administration's decision to violate the Geneva Conventions and the U.N. Convention Against Torture and to break with decades of past practice by the U.S. military. These decisions at the top have led to hundreds of documented cases of abuse, torture and homicide in Iraq and Afghanistan. Mr. Cheney's counsel, David S. Addington, was reportedly one of the principal authors of a legal memo justifying the torture of suspects. This summer Mr. Cheney told several Republican senators that President Bush would veto the annual defense spending bill if it contained language prohibiting the use of cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment by any U.S. personnel.

I cannot begin to express my utter disbelief and disgust at this horrendous administration. What is wrong with these people????? They simply have no shame. How, in the name of all that is decent and good, can these people be entrusted with the keys to our country, free to spread evil throughout the free world.

Fitzmas cannot come fast enough for me. And if this investigation does not usher in the demise of this wicked gang of thugs, then we are in deep trouble.
