When George W. Bush was recently asked if waterboarding is illegal, he said, "I'm not going to talk about techniques. There's an enemy out there."

Well George, there sure are enemies. There are people who hate the United States and especially you, because you won't say that waterboarding is torture and illegal.

There are also friends of anti-fascism out there.

Senator Ted Kennedy reminded the world recently that the U.S. put a Japanese water-torturer to many years of hard labor for using the techniques against U.S. soldiers in WWII.

What a President, what a shepherd, what a chosen leader to reflect the American people you are. You're being the enemy of Christ, George.

Cast out your devils, George W. Bush and Dick Cheney, before it becomes too late for you.

For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies. Matthew 15:19. You can add torture to the list.

Torture is the evil coming out of your hearts, George and Dick. You're both headed straight for hell. Only those deficient in judgment, sense, or understanding follow you. Only the unwise don't speak out in no uncertain, unflattering terms against you and where you are leading and those you seek to put into offices who won't say waterboarding is torture, evil, and illegal.

Ted Kennedy was right to bring up the hypocrisy concerning Japanese soldiers and WWII, but he was totally wrong to say, "Judge Mukasey appears to be a careful, conscientious, and intelligent lawyer, and he has served our country honorably for many years."

On the contrary, Ted, it is obvious that Judge Mukasey is none of those things with which you've credited him. He has not served the American people honorably for many years. He has not taken care not to be misled or to mislead. A man of conscience would not engage in what he is doing right now. A person of conscience says waterboarding is evil, torture, and illegal. He is not intelligent enough to say it.

Quit being a hypocrite, Ted.
