Monstrous hypocrisy

Freedom from torture is an inalienable human right, and we are committed to building a world where human rights are respected and protected by the rule of law.

[...]

America will not pretend that jailed dissidents prefer their chains, or that women welcome humiliation and servitude, or that any human being aspires to live at the mercy of bullies.

All who live in tyranny and hopelessness can know: The United States will not ignore your oppression or excuse your oppressors. When you stand for your liberty, we will stand with you.
--George Bush, 26 Jun 2005

This is the second most montrous lie told by this self-righteous hypocrite. The first being the lie he told about Iraq and Hussein.

This quotation is from an article by Reuters, entitled Bush Says US Seeks to Eliminate Torture Worldwide. What will it take for the U.S. to eliminate torture? For starters: A president who will stand up and flatly declare and command that no American serviceman or intelligence operative or officer is to inflict torture on anyone at any time, or to remove detainees to those countries which do practice torture.

But that president sure as Hell isn't going to be Bush.

Bush lies, and liberty dies.

I'm proud the ALA voted first against torture and now against the war.
