Meanwhile the monkey in power is once again trying to avoid the facts of the matter

President Bush, seeking to salvage the nomination of Michael Mukasey as attorney general, on Thursday defended the former judge's refusal to say whether he considers waterboarding as illegal torture.

Bush said it was unfair to ask Mukasey about interrogation techniques on which he has not been briefed. "He doesn't know whether we use that technique or not," the president told a group of reporters invited into the Oval Office.

(I'm sorry, why does he have to be "briefed" about waterboarding in order to say whether or not it's illegal, or, to be more clear, torture? That's not a hard question to answer. "Burning people with cigarettes, is this right or wrong? Holding people in secret detention and ignoring habeus corpus, right or wrong?")

Further, Bush said, "It doesn't make any sense to tell the enemy whether we use those techniques or not."

(Uh ... isn't he really saying he doesn't want to admit it to the American people?)

Asked whether he considers waterboarding legal, Bush replied, "I'm not going to talk about techniques. There's an enemy out there."

(Yep, that's right, there's an enemy ... the American people who should rightfully be outraged by having a government that tortures people. The article continues ...)

[Bush] said he was concerned that some people "have lost sight of the fact that we are at war with extremists and radicals." (end article quote)

Wow, he got one thing right! But what he MISSED is that the extremists and radicals we are at war with are the nutty freaking NeoCons that are running the White House! JESUS!

Did you know when I was back home I was afraid to publish this stuff not friends locked for fear it would make it more difficult for me to travel internationally?
