This makes me sick. I heard about it yesterday on the radio, then ran into it again on Darren’s site (link below). I thought I’d provide some links so others can get just as disgusted.

Links to what? Links describing how Dick, our V.P., is trying to get language passed in Congress that will exempt the CIA from human rights laws. It would allow the CIA to torture foreign prisoners we are holding overseas.

Could this be a liberal smear campaign? Nope. This is for real.

Here’s the story in the New York Times.

Here’s the story from the UPI.

Here’s the story in The Boston Globe.

Here’s the story in The Washington Post, along with an editorial. (The editorial is also reprinted at Darren’s site, with his usual graphical flare).

Here’s an audio archive from NPR’s Talk of the Nation. (I have not listened to this yet.)

When we read these kinds of stories about our government, we have to remember who it was who put them into power. I am disgusted with our ignorant fellow Americans.

It’s scary to think that this administration has three more years of the ability to pull this kind of shit.

How is this all possible? How can we accept this? How can they pull the wool over 1/2 of the americans eyes? I’m fearful for what our future holds.

I just got done watching Star Wars Episode III. I can’t help but see the parallels that our govt has with the dark side and the empire. Unfuckin’ believable.

Excuse my french.

Oh, please! French is the official second language of this site! Maybe once the world is a more sane place, we can all stick to pure, Puritan English.

Until then, French away!
