It took awhile….

But George Bush FINALLY thought out a decision and made the right one. As Huffington Post reports,

Former U.S. President George W. Bush has cancelled a visit to Switzerland, where he was to address a Jewish charity gala, due to the risk of legal action against him for alleged torture, rights groups said on Saturday.

So George Bush is welcome in Beloit, WI, where he helped create a 17% unemployment rate with open arms(well semi-open arms as the taxpayers helped pay for a private event). The admitted war criminal, however is NOT welcome in countries that take the rule of law seriously and have ratified the torture convention.

Maybe he could send Dick Cheney in his place!

  1. yes Halliburton paid $250 million dollars of taxpayer money as a bribe to get cheney off the hook. Hardly a ‘not guilty” verdict.

    WHere was the tea party on that one by the way?

  2. I support torture by the CIA under certain circumstances. My issue with Bush, Cheney, et al, is that they moved torture from the CIA to the US military. From backrooms to military bases. I agree with Sen. McCain who said that everyone should know that they are safe when they are in the custody of the US military. Friend and foe alike should know that. But if the CIA has you, well, you should know that your life is in their hands.
    The world has evil men and evil men with knowledge should give it up to the CIA. But taking prisoners on the ‘battlefield’ and then treating them as they did at Abu Ghraib was reprehensible.

    There is enough evidence that the military and torture is a bad combination.

  3. There is also enough evidence that torture does not work and that waterboarding is torture. Look at KSM who they admit torturing. While I could care less about him personally, most stories will tell you that all of the information they got from him was pre-waterboarding. He stopped talking once they started waterboarding.
