Some Further Reading for the Sixth Grade Fucks Among You

I like this little gem:

In testimony declassified at The Sun's request, (Richard) Stolz (then-deputy director for operations) confirmed that the CIA trained Hondurans.

"The course consisted of three weeks of classroom instruction followed by two weeks of practical exercises, which included the questioning of actual prisoners by the students.

"Physical abuse or other degrading treatment was rejected, not only because it is wrong, but because it has historically proven to be ineffective," he said.

And there are others just as good.

This comes from an article in the Baltimore Sun from back on January 27, 1997. (h/t to the Rude Pundit)

Also talked about in this article:

the use of sensory deprivation, which we know very well was used on Jose Padilla -- whose case I believe was presided over by Mukasey. I remember seeing pics of Padilla all trussed up, blindfolded and wearing ear muffs while on his way to the dentist.

the 1963 KUBARK manual, "which shows that, at least during the 1960s, agents were free to use coercion during interrogation, provided they obtained approval in advance.

It offers a list of interrogation techniques, including threats, fear, "debility, pain, heightened suggestibility and hypnosis, narcosis [use of drugs] and induced regression." "

I wonder why McCain and Lindsey Graham stamp their feet but fold in the end whenever talk of torture comes up... they knew that while we were bitching about the VC and North Vietnamese torturing our guys, our guys were torturing their guys.

When someone wants to lay claim to some moral high ground, they better make sure that when they bend over, their ass is wiped and their panties are clean.

OK You Sixth Grade Fucks, Let Me Explain

I wish I knew the U Tubes better than I do; what I'd do for a ...a ...a ...whatever you artistic shits call it... all the scenes from Philadelphia where Denzel wants things explained to him like he was a sixth grader.. you know... that collection... right here in a little click-screen...

Can I sound more Ted Stevensish?



So Dubya nominates this Mucus guy. Huh? Mucusey? Mukasey? What's in a name. He's a Dub-guy. Oh... for Attorney General. Now as I understand from my eighth grade civics, the AG is the guy who gives the final write-off for all laws; at least as far as the executive branch of the gov't is concerned. Basically, he's the guy who says yes or no as far as Dubya saying that I have to wear panties with his picture on them every Monday. Or not. and then I agree (or not) (or get branded terrorist) and hope that some how I get the opportunity/privilege/life-death experience of a court appear3ance complete with legal representation.... He's in charge of all this legal shit. He says whether or not he thinks laws are legal -- yes dear, laws can be illegal -- if you believe in the constitution -- and then the cops, FBI, ATF, CIA, NSA, Carlisle Group, Blackwater... act accordingly. Or not.

welllllllll... there's this group of impotent important people called the Judiciary Committee who sit the guy down and ask him questions with the idea of finding out if he's qualified (and mentally balanced) enough to take the job. or not. And they ask him important shit like his favorite color, or kids' favorite sports teams, or what he'll be wearing for halloween... huh? Oh. That was the presidential debate. m'bad.


Water BOARDING. Yeah. Someone had the NERVE to ask this guy if waterboarding was legal or not. Whether or not it is torture (torture being illegal) according to.... and I guess this... well.... ... somewhere in here this guy sputters. By what standard? For what purpose? as administered by..? Excuse me, but I'm having some Scooby Doo moments here. HUH???

Maybe using Coke? Pepsi? Mountain Dew? 7-Up?

If "WE" do it versus 'they."

The Jack Bauer/24/ticking timebomb/can't find my panties I'll be late for church.... You never had a peroxide blonde SoBaptist SEC allstar cheerleader... sorry... didn't mean to brag. Where was i....

Thumbscrews? The rack? The iron maiden? Crucifixion? Bamboo shoots under the fingernails? The Chinese water torture?

I've heard about these since I was about 6 - 7 years old. Water boarding?

Never heard of it before Bush jr. Basically, assholesamerican agents strap you down to a board, blindfold you and then pour water on your face to give you the impression that you're being drowned. Hmm... like being buried in the sand while the tide comes in?

So is it torture? Dub's guy can't say. Dub...?

"It's not fair to ask him about a program about which he's not been briefed." (I apologize for any grammatical correctness)

OK... Sixth graders... Program: He's not being asked about a "program." This is a favorite of the bushites: Rewrite the question; redefine the term; He's being asked about a specific practice. A practice he HAS to know about. If he doesn't know about it, he's been living under a rock and has no business as AG.

There's no need for him to be briefed; and the lack of a briefing is.... I don't need to be "briefed" to know that having my dick slammed in a car door will be painful. I've never been racked; I've never been slammed in the iron maiden. I don't know that either would cause permanent damage. I don't really know shit about either practice. What I do know....




And so is waterboarding.

If congress approves Mucus... Mucusguy... Mukasey...

"Good Germans" "Good" "Want a Treat?"
