Eat At Joes

Just a regular Joe who is angry that the USA, the country he loves, is being corrupted and damaged from within and trying to tell his fellow Americans the other half of the story that they don’t get on the TV News.

US acknowledges torture at Guantanamo, in Iraq, and in Afghanistan

According to this AFP report the Bush Administration for the first time acknowledged to the United Nations that prisoners have been tortured at US detention centers in Guantanamo Bay, as well as Afghanistan and Iraq, a UN source said. The Bush Admin claims that these were low-level US Military personnel not working under the orders of the Bush Administration. Right! Let me see if I got this right: All over the world (Cuba, Afghanistan, Iraq) dozens if not scores of US Military personnel independently came up with the same idea to torture the detainees suspected of involvement with Iraq or Afghanistan. They tortured many in the same manner, but they all came up with the idea themselves and didn’t hear it from their superiors. The torture in Iraq just happened to follow the torture in Cuba after the General who was in charge of Guantanamo Bay was put in charge of Abu Ghraib and said he was going to Gitmo’ize Abu Gharaib? Gee, what a coincidence. But Bush says it’s true and the US Press isn’t bothering to question that so, golly, it must be true. Anybody want to sell the US Citizens some swampland in Florida filled with discarded but uncounted 2000 electoral ballots?

In a related story U.S. doctors have been linked to POW torture Medical records compiled by doctors caring for prisoners at the U.S. detention camp at Guantanamo Bay are being tapped to design more effective interrogation techniques, says an explosive new report rather than to provide care for the prisoners.

Fresh from getting Corporate-Owned US Media to Self-Censor any news critical of his Administration, Bush is now pressuring foreign news sources to do the same. He will win because he will bomb them into the Stone Age if they do not obey! Resistance is FUTILE! You will be assimilated by the Bush Borg!
