President specifically authorized torture in Abu Ghraib

all the charges against the soldiers should be dropped forthwith.  if they were authorized by the president then, although the international community may judge them, america should not.

Sure I agree with you completely. But it won't happen. Why? Because there is NO accountability in government or the military. Both are run like bureaucratic corporations. The higher ups fuck around and when the shit hits the fan, they grab the nearest scapegoat to blame, then go on their merry way.

"I did not have sexual relations with that woman" == no penetration, no foul.

"There is no torture at Abu Ghraib" == Sure, there's "extreme methods", but we've carefully defined our "extreme methods" so they are, by definition, NOT torture.

When Clinton lied, nobody got tortured.

"When Clinton lied, nobody got tortured."

This is getting old, and you are not convincing others who disagree with you on this subject.

So sorry, but the OP saying "Bush specifically authorized torture" is factually incorrect.  The word "torture" does not appear in the authorization.

So must we let Bush off on a technicality?

Yes, because it's not made under oath.

I'm perfectly okay with handing Bush over to the Hague for prosecution for War Crimes and violation of the Geneva Convention. I really think the next President should absolutely do it.

I know - it'll never happen. [sob]
