Bush Tortured? Damn Right!
Not that there was ever any doubt but George W, Bush, one of the worst Presidents in history, finally admits that he tortured captives. Despite the fact that torture is illegal, Bush lamely attempted to justify his actions in a recent interview with Oprah Winfrey. He admits that he gave the go ahead for waterboarding terror suspects.
“CIA experts drew up a list of interrogation techniques. … At my direction, Department of Justice and CIA lawyers conducted a careful legal review. The enhanced interrogation program complied with the Constitution and all applicable laws, including those that ban torture.
“There were two that I felt went too far, even if they were legal. I directed the CIA not to use them. Another technique was waterboarding, a process of simulated drowning. No doubt the procedure was tough, but medical experts assured the CIA that it did no lasting harm.”
Bush does not seem to understand that when the United States of America breaches its own ideals and international laws, it creates a “lasting harm” to its own image. When this great nation of ours stoops to the despicable depths of the tyrannical governments, we become not a guiding light for others to follow, but a darkened cave to avoid. No civilized nation of laws should close its eyes to this man’s blatant disregard for human dignity. If we, as a nation, are who we claim we are, George W. Bush should now be criminally prosecuted.
OK then, now that we’re finished with that, let’s have some fun with a song parody…

(sung to the television theme of “F Troop”)
The dawn of the Iraq War was near
Cheney and Bush got the limits pushed
And commenced torturous brutality.
The methods employed often maimed and killed
Which pleased Cheney’s vicious group.
The waterboard trick both chilled and thrilled
Nobody was appalled they were called Bush Troop.
With testicle bites and really bright lights
Their victims sure took a lickin’
From draft dodging war hawks
Who are just chickens.
When killing and maiming get them down
They know their morale can’t droop.
As long as they own old D.C. Town
They are sure to resume with a bang and a boom
