Perino: “We Did Not Torture”

November 19, 2008

Part of me just wants to know why is the media trying to get the Bush administration to tell the truth about anything that’s been done by them? Did they really expect Bush to say yes he believes in torture?  Why are we even playing these games? It is not a secret that America was torturing prisoners.  Hell, O’Reilly, Hannity and Rush swear by this tactic.  This is just the media poking fun, obviously, at the Bush administration.  I know they knew damn well no one would ever give them a justifiable reason why torture was being done or any of the other criminal activities the Bush administration has committed.

The ACLU is today filing a suit alleging that the Bush administration has asked other nations to hold terrorism suspects whom the U.S. had not yet charged. The ACLU cites the case of Naji Hamdan, an American Muslim, who has been held for nearly three months in the United Arab Emirates “without charges, access to a lawyer or contact with his family.” Said an ACLU spokesperson:

If the U.S. government is responsible for this detention and we believe it is, this is clearly illegal because our government can’t contract away the Constitution by enlisting the aid of other governments that do not adhere to the Constitution’s requirements.
