article imageBush Administration Secretly Okayed Torture

By Oliver VanDervoort     Oct 4, 2007 in Politics
Despite the Justice Department declaring Torture "Abhorrent" new evidence suggests that the Bush Administration worked to endorse the harshest treatment possible for detainees
The New York Times is reporting that soon after their declaration of dislike for violent interrogation techniques new Attorney General Alberto Gonzales issued a different, secret document, which endorsed the harshest techniques ever used by the CIA in interrogation.
Among other things, the new document allowed head slapping, simulated drowning, and frigid temperatures.
At least one member of the of the Justice Department wasn't happy with the move, James Comey, who was the outgoing Deputy Attorney General told several colleagues they'd be "ashamed" when the document became public knowledge
Adding insult to injury, when Congress outlawed "Cruel, inhuman and degrading" treatment of prisoners, Gonzales issued another secret document, telling the CIA their violent renditions did not clash with that law.
Just another manuever that shows just how bad an Attorney General you have to be to make John Ashcroft look competent
