the Gonzales confirmation hearings.
"Let's see if I understand this. Because we train our military to withstand torture at the hands of people we have in the past condemned for using torture, we can now use it ourselves because it is no longer torture; it's just a training technique we use to imitate torture."
"And there have been allegations of death at the hands of our interrogators in Iraq, so does that make it torture again?"
I was trying to get to the issue of our behavior at Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo. Little did I know that the Red Cross had already pronounced on the issue:
What the hell are we doing? Where is George Bush leading this country that it has now abandoned most of it's previous moral stands, all in the name of deposing Saddam Hussein and elevating George Dubya?
20 years from now what are people going to say about the generation that elected this idiot one and a quarter times? At least Nixon was opposed, even by some in his own party and would have been impeached had he not baled, but nobody is opposing this guy in any meaningful way. Democrats have signed on to this agenda.
Some here say it's not my problem because in their opinion I am no longer an American, that I should be writing all this from the viewpoint of an outsider.
As if you'd listen.
It is a part of that Isolationist thread that is woven through the collective character of America that nobody else's opinion matters, only true blue Americans. And right now nobody's opinion matters except that of the true Red White and Blue Bushies. Roughly a quarter of the electorate if my understanding of the figures is correct.
I have the feeling that in a few years, we'll look back on all this and go "How did we get it so wretchedly wrong". I understand partisanship, I understand divergent opinions, but I don't understand this headlong abandonment of everything the US once stood for.
