Eric H. Holder Jr., Deputy Attorney General during the Clinton administration, asserted in a speech to the American Constitution Society (ACS) that the United States must reverse “the disastrous course” set by the Bush administration in the struggle against terrorism by closing the detention center at Guantanamo Bay, declaring without qualification that the U.S. does not torture people, ending the practice of transferring individuals involuntarily to countries that engage in torture and ceasing warrantless domestic surveillance.LET SEE....
- SCHEUER (AN IRAQ WAR CRITIC) HAS REPEATEDLY SAID THAT " the practice of transferring individuals involuntarily to countries that engage in torture" OR RENDITION IS AN ESSENTIAL TOOL. ONE THAT HAS KEPT US SAFE.
- WARRANTLESS SURVEILLANCE OF ENEMY SIGNALS IS CONSTITUTIONAL AND KEEPS US SAFE. GETTING WARRANTS FOR EVERY INTERCEPT IS IMPRACTICAL AND UNNECESSARY.
- BUSH HAS REPEATEDLY SAID THE USA DOESN'T TORTURE. WATER-BOARDING ISN'T TORTURE. THE PROOF OF THIS IS THE FACT THAT BOOZERS LIKE HITCHENS HAVE VOLUNTEERED FOR IT AND HAVE WRITTEN ABOUT IT. NO ONE VOLUNTEERS FOR REAL TORTURE.
- GITMO KEEPS US SAFE MERELY BY KEEPING THE PRISONERS THERE AND OUT OF THE USA, OUT OF OUR TOWNS.
THAT'S WHY THEY'RE SCUM.
