How many of the following GITMO prisoners were later kicked in the balls, had their limbs broken, and had chemicals poured on them just for the fun of it?…
President Obama has banned torture and has started the process of closing the GITMO prison with the stroke of a pen, but it appears the Bush Loyalists who are still in our military don’t care. They’re still torturing and abusing prisoners at GITMO.
The ‘Black Shirts’ of Guantanamo routinely terrorize prisoners, breaking bones, gouging eyes, squeezing testicles, and ‘dousing’ them with chemicals.
As the Obama administration continues to fight the release of some 2,000 photos that graphically document U.S. military abuse of prisoners in Iraq and Afghanistan, an ongoing Spanish investigation is adding harrowing details to the ever-emerging portrait of the torture inside and outside Guantánamo. Among them: “blows to [the] testicles;” “detention underground in total darkness for three weeks with deprivation of food and sleep;” being “inoculated … through injection with ‘a disease for dog cysts;’” the smearing of feces on prisoners; and waterboarding. The torture, according to the Spanish investigation, all occurred “under the authority of American military personnel” and was sometimes conducted in the presence of medical professionals.

Geeeeee, what’s on the torture abuse photos again? Seems to me they are more graphic then what was released from Abu Graib years ago and the President knows this? If our soldiers are breaking arms, gouging eyeballs, and pouring chemicals on the prisoners (maybe lighting them on fire too? Don’t know!), then maybe there is a horrific chance our soldiers are raping/torturing young boys in front of their mothers? But hey…
According to the American right wing minority party of today, they support the use of torture and they think Nancy Pelosi is to blame for George Bush & Dick Cheney ordering the torture of prisoners in GITMO, Abu Graib, and secret CIA prisons around the world. She as a Democrat was in the minority party back then, so what I’d like to know is:
WHAT IS THE AMERICAN RIGHT WING MINORITY PARTY OF TODAY GOING TO DO ABOUT THE ONGOING TORTURE OF PRISONERS BY THE BUSH LOYALISTS STILL IN THE MILITARY WHO ARE IGNORING PRESIDENT OBAMA’S COMMAND AND WHO ARE TORTURING PRISONERS AS WE SPEAK?
House Minority Leader John Boner and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell are silent right now on this. Oh, but wait! Didn’t they say on behalf of the republican party that torture is fine, is/was legal, and it’s the only way to keep our nation safe? Why yes they did! But yet, they’re out there condemning Nancy Pelosi for the whole entire torture issue. I’m very confused about this. Do the right wingers like torture or not…or do they only hate it when we have a Democratic President, but really do enjoy torture, but want to blame the Democrats for Bush & Cheney’s use of torture to make themselves feel better and to make themselves look like they’re the moral ones? I’m telling you…it’s very confusing what the minority right wingers are doing today. Sooo…
If Boner & McConnell are fine with torture today, then they will applaud our soldiers at GITMO for continuing to orchestrate the Bush Torture Laws while ignoring President Obama’s. If they come out swinging against what is happening at GITMO right now and continue to blame the Democrats for torture, then we will know how ridiculous their political party has become! You neocons can’t have it both ways….if you were for Bush’s torture program and you find out torture is still going on, then you can’t blame the Democrats for it. You must support the use of torture today, but if you as the minority party go against torture, you do realize you’re going to look like a bunch of hypocrites who stands for nothing and only bloviate your bullshit after you lick your finger and put it in the wind, don’t ya?
SIDEBAR NOTE: The Democrats are in control of both houses of Congress just like the republicans were back in 2002/2003 when torture was learned. The Democrats cannot be blamed for the use of torture today, because as we’ve heard from the republicans of today…..THE MINORITY PARTY IS ALWAYS TO BLAME FOR THE ACTIONS OF THE CURRENT PRESIDENT! See?
Excellent. Just saying…
I’m completely against the use of torrure and I hope President Obama and Bob Gates are clamping down on these Bush Neck Drooling Loyalists at GITMO who are still torturing prisoners!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Maybe this is why President Obama would like to have Military Tribunals come back…..it would be used for some of our soldiers! Hey could be. I say, bring all of our soldiers and the prisoners back to America to be tried for their crimes. When they’re found guilty, they can vacation with the 1993 WTC bombers at the Colorado Supermax prison with the rest of the terrorists! (and that includes our soldiers who are torturing prisoners out of fun which is a form of terrorism!)
