We hung Japanese military for water boarding our soldiers and executed the Germans for preemptive war and then we (the CIA) caused coup d’etats in Iran, Gutamala, Chile (the original 9/11) and God knows how many other countries (more than fifty interventions since 1945).

We taught the secret police in all sorts of countries (like the evil dictator Shah of Iran’s SAVAK) to torture people. When I saw the photos of Abu Graib all I could think about is there they go again. It was all things that we knew about from a long long time ago.


I hearing about people tortured by SAVAK under tutelage of their teachers the CIA. Their nails were puuled out with pliers. remember reading about

Why write about the torture methods. The point is that our goverment through the CIA, "The School For Americas," and similar organizations has been teaching dictatorships to torture. We have and contnue to support evil dictatorships like Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and so on and we condemn any country which dares support their own national interests (not those of the multinationals) as evil countries.

So yes torture is wrong but it is wrong for all people, for all countries and the torturers should be held to justice. At Nuremberg we established the principle that saying, "I did it because I was so ordered was no defense."

How dare Obama say that the actual people who tortured will not be investigated?  Now, maybe they have a perfect defense. But then in most criminal cases we start at the bottom and prosecute and then make deals so they will turn states evidence.

Ultimately the torture buck stops with Cheney, his monkey, Rice, the ex-secretary of war (forgotten his name – shows how important he was in reality – oh yeh Rumsfeld). These and the lawyers who justified torture should be tried by an international court and if found guilty dealt with accordingly.

Then the whole world will know that there’s one law for all and you will be prosecuted in time if you torture.
