"The United States is committed to the worldwide elimination of torture and we are leading this fight by example. I call on all governments to join with the US and the community of law-abiding nations in prohibiting, investigating, and prosecuting all acts of torture and in undertaking to prevent other cruel and unusual punishment. " --George W. Bush, 6/27/03
"Iraq is free of rape rooms and torture chambers. " -- George W. Bush, 10/3/03 (we prefer to call them enhanced interrogation centers)
"I expect them to be treated, the POWs, I expect to be treated humanely, just like we 're treating the prisoners that we have captured humanely. If not, the people who mistreat the prisoners will be treated as war criminals. " --George W. Bush, warning the Iraqis prior to the war, 3/3/03
The French writer, Voltaire, said, "Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities. " The Bush Administration has done both to America.
