Bush Official Warned About Torture in Secret Memo

Months before al-Qaida operative Khalid Sheikh Mohammed is set to stand trial for his alleged role in the 9/11 attacks, a draft of a secret memo written in 2006 by a senior adviser to Condoleezza Rice warning that the “enhanced interrogation” techniques used by the Bush administration in the “war on terror” violated U.S. law has surfaced at the U.S. State Department.

Deadly Israeli Airstrike Kills 37 Children, Ignites Arab Fury

The Israeli missile attack on a southern Lebanese village, which killed at least 57, has thrown the incipient peace process into complete disarray.

    Condoleezza Rice with Al Jafari

    Friends Don’t Let Friends Use Torture

    Condi Rice is so tired of Old Europe and its human rights complaints. Big deal, so the CIA is using Soviet era torture camps in Eastern Europe to stash “war on terror” prisoners.  Don’t those fusspots in the EU understand that our use of torture is fundamentally different because we are the good guys and that Eastern Europe has been liberated?  That outmoded European slogan of “friends don’t let friends use torture” is so over.
