Bush Administration Claims It Can Ignore Anti-Torture Laws
The New York Times reports the Justice Department has told Congress that US intelligence operatives can legally use interrogation methods that are banned by US and international law if they are attempting to thwart terrorist attacks. The letters from the Justice Department show that the Bush administration believes it can ignore the Geneva Conventions and restrictions from the Supreme Court and Congress designed to prevent interrogators from torturing prisoners. In the letters, the Justice Department argues that the legality of some interrogation techniques depends on why they are being used.

The neocons are sick. They've been made sick by abuse that they now want to act out. The abused becomes the abuser unless he or she or they overcome. The neocons aren't overcoming yet. They must be removed as leaders in every office in the land or the chickens will continue coming home to roost. Don't follow them. Don't let them lead you anywhere. They aren't thinking with the higher regions of the brain. They are thinking with the reptilian region.
