Torture Ban May Have a Loophole
George WMD Bush suffered a stinging defeat Thursday when overwhelming congressional support forced him to abandon his opposition to anti-torture legislation and reach an agreement with its sponsor, Sen. John McCain, an Arizona Republican.

If Bush Claims He Needs the Patriot Act to Fight Terrorism, Why Did He Let 9/11 Happen Despite Being Warned that Al-Qaeda Was Going to Hijack Planes in the U.S.? Whey is He Allowing People to Bring Box Cutters and Knives Back on Airplanes? Why is Usama Still Dead? Why Did He Turn Iraq Into a Haven for Terrorists?

Reading the new reports that the Pentagon is conducting surveillance of peaceful antiwar groups and protests, I feel like I'm having a bad '60s flashback.
Our government lied, cheated, harassed, intimidated, burglarized, vandalized, framed and spread false rumors — to say nothing of keeping voluminous files on everyone from John Lennon to Lucille Ball — in an effort to quash legitimate dissent against the Vietnam War and the racist practices of the South.We can't let it happen again.

Bush Approved Eavesdropping
Bush on Friday refused to discuss whether he had authorized such domestic spying without obtaining warrants from a court, saying that to comment would tie his hands in fighting terrorists.

Bush is taken to task on spying on American citizens to ensure that Republicans maintain power in the United States through spying, rigged elections, thuggery in Congress, intimidation, threats, blackmail, outing CIA operatives, character assassination, torture...Hey, is Stalin or Brezhnev running our country? Sounds like it. Osama just needs to sit back and watch Bush destory America. Al-Qaeda doesn't need to lift a finger. Bush is doing their work for them.

Bush played down the importance of the eavesdropping story. "It's not the main story of the day," Bush told Lehrer. "The main story of the day is the Iraqi elections" for parliament which took place on Thursday.
Neither Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice nor White House press secretary Scott McClellan would confirm or deny the report which said the super-secret NSA had spied on as many as 500 people at any given time since 2002 in this country.

Iraq's Election a 'Victory for Iran'

"But it takes you to hit rock bottom, and see yourself lying in all the ... shit ... excuse me ... faeces around you, it's almost like you're swimming in a toilet full of ... faeces ... and suddenly the stink hits you, and you think, oh my God, I've got to get out of here.",11710,1669258,00.html
She gave up drinking and doing drugs when Aaliyah died, in a plane crash, on the last weekend of August 2001. "She wasn't a close friend. It was just that when I saw her die, that's when I discovered the fact that I'm next. I don't know how or when, but I'm next. I don't know what kind of freak accident they're going to put me in, or what kind of overdose of heroin they're going to sort out, but at the end of the day, I knew I was next. I just thought, I'm scared."

Every government has as much of a duty to avoid war as a ship's captain has to avoid a shipwreck.

So when do we get invaded to remove the rogue government that spies on its own people, gases its own people during anti War protests, stages "terrorist" attacks, holds crooked elections, attacks other nations without cause, and uses torture on innocent people looking for WMD that don't exist?
