Bushie war criminals having an out of body, out of time experience
Left wing extremist and commie sympathizer, former General Barry McCaffrey weighs in on the implications of the torture memos the Obama Administration released April 16:
Nora O’Donnell: General McCaffrey, let me start with you. The President’s speech was largely a pep rally. How do you think it went?
General Barry McCaffrey: Good. It was the right thing to do. It’s hard for me to overstate the degree of respect I have for the agency. I worked with them closely for years. They’re disciplined. They’re courageous. They’re effective. We ought to be grateful they’re there.
Having said that, it’s almost an out of body experience to me to listen to this debate going on [whether these techniques were torture].
We should never as a policy maltreat people under our control, detainees.
We tortured people unmercifully. We probably murdered dozens of them during a course of that, both by the armed forces and CIA. [Releasing the memos] was the right thing to do.
Despite the Rethugs’ attempt (with a major assist from the corporatist media) to change the discussion of Bush era war crimes (including murder) from a legal and criminal one to an argument about the “effectiveness” of various torture techniques; and notwithstanding the Obama Administration fervent attempt to “look forward” rather than prosecuting these bastards, this shit ain’t going away. Ever.
Said the Master:
Tell my children that I am not only tender of their feelings and patient with their frailties, but that I am also ruthless with sin and intolerant of iniquity. I am indeed meek and humble in the presence of my Father, but I am equally and relentlessly inexorable where there is deliberate evildoing and sinful rebellion against the will of my Father in heaven.
