Torture tapes, Waterboarding and more

12 12 2007

This whole deal with torture tapes has led to something so massive that someone is getting into some deep trouble sometime soon – especially after it has come to light that the court had ordered the Bush administration not to destroy any interrogation tapes.

And President Bush is so dumb that he said he knew nothing about it until a few days ago.

Anyways, now that everyone knows the tapes were destroyed, because they certainly contained inhumane torture methods, some people are trying to justify how methods like waterboarding, in case of Abu Zubaydah, brought life-saving information.

Here is an interesting post by Bob Cesca in the Huffington Post on waterboarding and more.





Christmas in Fallujah

6 12 2007

Billy Joel has come with a new anti-war song, Christmas in Fallujah. But he is not the one who sings it. He gave it to 21-year-old Cass Dillon, a singer from Long Island.

From the AP:
“When someone of that stature, with that history of great songs behind him with such a huge catalogue asks you to sing something he’s written, there’s nothing you can do but be completely honoured to perform,” Dillon said in a statement.

Christmas in Fallujah is on sale on Apple Inc’s iTunes. Net proceeds will be donated to Homes for Our Troops, which builds homes for severely wounded veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan.

Listen to a live performance below.
