A summary of U.S. interrogation policy

Here is a summary of U.S. interrogation policies during the Bush Administration:

Oops, that was the Gestapo's interrogation policies. No matter. They weren't any different from the real U.S. interrogation policies. Which constituted torture, according to the Red Cross and pretty much every other human rights organization.

So, will the perpetrators of torture find themselves on trial for war crimes? To find out the answer to that question, this penguin turns to our crack panel of judges: I think that means "no". After all, that would require some self-examination and effort on our part. Can't have that, can we?!

  1. It'll never happen 'cause it would involve too many people in govt outside the Bush administration.

    I think half of Congress would be involved in a war crimes trial for standing by and doing nothing, which makes them just as guilty.


Ground rules: Comments that consist solely of insults, fact-free talking points, are off-topic, or simply spam the same argument over and over will be deleted. The penguin is the only one allowed to be an ass here. All viewpoints, however, are welcomed, even if I disagree vehemently with you.

WARNING: You are entitled to create your own arguments, but you are NOT entitled to create your own facts. If you spew scientific denialism, or insist that the sky is purple, or otherwise insist that your made-up universe of pink unicorns and cotton candy trees is "real", well -- expect the banhammer.
