Stop the torture!

The left pulled out every trick this week (stopping just short of bringing back Anita Hill) to stop the nomination of Alberto Gonzales. They’ve failed, once again. That’s what dim-o-cracks do best, fail.

They tried to play the torture card. And what horrible things have been going on down at Gitmo?

(Newsweek) Ibraham Al Qosi’s stories seemed fairly outlandish when they first surfaced last fall. In a lawsuit, Al Qosi, a Sudanese accountant apprehended after 9/11 on suspicions of ties to Al Qaeda, charged that he and other detainees at Guantanamo Bay had been subjected to bizarre forms of humiliation and abuse by U.S. military inquisitors. Al Qosi claimed they were strapped to the floor in an interrogations center known as the Hell Room, wrapped in Israeli flags, taunted by female interrogators who rubbed their bodies against them in sexually suggestive ways, and left alone in refrigerated cells for hours with deafening music blaring in their ears. Back then, Pentagon officials dismissed Al Qosi’s allegations as the fictional rantings of a hard-core terrorist.

I’ll take the female interrogators part — pick me, pick me!

The donks have done their best to neuter our ability to use even the mildest intimidation tactics to get information out of people trying to kill us. It seems illogical, and it is. That’s because liberalism is a side-effect of serious mental illness, making logic impossible. Jeff at BA has more on this: How to lose a war.

What is really amusing is the number of times I’ve heard the Geneva Convention mentioned in all of this garbage. As soon as you can show me the documentation that shows that the islamofascists are following the regs of the Convention (i.e. wearing a uniform, not using children and women as human shields, etc.) I’ll listen up. Until then, the Geneva Convention IS NOT RELEVANT so shut your wordhole.

Also amusing were Ted Kennedy’s complaints about “water boarding”.

Mr. Kennedy: “Now, [The Washington] Post article states you [Mr. Gonzales] chaired several meetings at which various interrogation techniques were discussed. These techniques included the threat of live burial and water boarding, whereby the detainee is strapped to a board, forcibly pushed under water, wrapped in a wet towel and made to believe he might drown.”

This coming from a man who allowed his whore to drown at Chappaquiddick. Teddy has obviously given up on any pretense that he’s trying to retain human being status.

Now comes word that we have 325 foreign fighters in custody in Iraq that may be shipped elsewhere for interrogation. This was the mistake we made last time.

Just to reinforce the fact that Six Meat Buffet is against torture, I’ll make a suggestion. Instead of screwing up like we did in Afghanistan and dragging all that human debris back to Gitmo, just use the Abu Ghraib facility. Ask them politely if they have any intelligence information that would help us against the islamofascist insurgency. Then, after they’ve answered to the best of their ability, take them out back and do away with them Soviet-style. No torture, just quick and painless.

The assumption must be made that these foreign fighters have come to Iraq to kill our service men and women. Therefore this action would be entirely in self-defense, and more than justified.

The fact that the donks are using this bullshit torture argument to try to derail Gonzales and continue to destroy the morale of our troops, tells you all you need to know about what side they’re on in the war on terror. They are FIRMLY with the islamofascists. They demonstrated this during the election and they continue to demonstrate it through dog-and-pony shows like these.

The thing to always keep in mind about the American left is that they do love America. In some cases, they love The America That Can Be. In other cases, they love America like O.J. loved Nicole – so much so that they have to behead it.

But I am not questioning their patriotism.

  1. What I don’t get is how long can they blame libs when Republican pols jump every time someone says torture? I guarantee you Dems don’t want to go to the wall defending terrorists, so let’s make them. It’s put up or shut up time for Republicans.

  2. The ugly truth is that the Republicans have been weak as a frail and feeble infant in congress. The GOP Senate has been the Dimocrats’ bitches for the last decade and it doesn’t look to be getting any better.

    What’s even more amazing is that we have a stronger majority than ever in the Senate and we’re weaker and less conservative than ever. If the GOP wets its collective pants, and I’m assuming it will, then we don’t have a hope in hell of winning this protracted war.

    Here’s hoping I’m wrong.

  3. Wow! I guess I was tortured this weekend too! Except they didn’t call it the Hell Room, it was called the VIP section. Definitely was defeaning music

    No Israeli flags, although one of my interrogators was this cute little Jewish girl named “Nikki” who was wearing a Catholic schoolgirl outfit.

    Ooh, my next interrogator was this cute mexican/spanish/portugese chick, code name “London”. She was obviously trying to mask her native land. If I had to make an educated guess, I would have said she came from the Republic of HotChickistan. She offered to call me Daddy.

    And now, I fear that I have developed a severe case of Stockholm Syndrome.
