NOT The Change I Voted For

So sad.......

Rachel Maddow points out that in Obama's national security speech yesterday, he proposes to replace Guantanamo-style detention without trial with his own detention without trial, a system he calls "Indefinite Preventative Detention" through which people who are believed to be likely to commit a crime at some point in the future can be locked up forever without charge, trial, jury or appeal.
Change I don't believe in.

Will Sean Hannity Volunteer For This, Just As He Volunteered To Be Waterboarded?

Is there any end to this national embarassment????? And can anybody guess what this guy will be telling his friends and neighbors at home about how the US treated him during his time in custody....and whether this will be one more story convincing someone else to resort to violence against our country???

The Raw Story reports that a military attorney who represented a suspected member of Al Qaeda (who was later freed) says her client received genital torture in a Moroccan CIA prison.
Air Force Lieutenant Colonel Yvonne Bradley, the lawyer for Binyam Mohamed, said "They started this monthly treatment where they would come in with a scalpel or a razor type of instrument and they would slash his genitals, just with small cuts."
Bradley told CNN that when she was first assigned to represent Mohamed, she did not question he was a hardened terrorist, because "my government was saying these were the worst of the worst." However, she now says, "There’s no reliable evidence that Mr. Mohamed was going to do anything to the United States."

Catholic Church Says Atheists Are Less Than Human

Amazing! According to these men wearing fancy dresses, anyone who does not share their belief in an invisible person living in the clouds somewhere is not fully human.

"Some of these fools know they’ve wasted their lives praying to a statue or a fictional character in a book, but it’s too late for them to change now. It is their ego that keeps them in the priesthood. Others lash out at us because we are growing and they are losing, and this trend will continue. They are hurling insults, because they have nothing else to say. Poor old fool."

Rumsfeld = Idiot

Check out this slideshow showing the covers of reports form Defense Secretary Rumsfeld delivered to the White House. Where does he get off inserting these ridiculous bible verses on government documents to glorify the unjust war in Iraq??? I hope some country has the balls to try these clown as a war criminal, since it is obvious the US is not going to do it1
