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.


Bush’s veto is overridden

8 11 2007

American President Bush’s veto on a bill authorizing spending on several water projects was overturned by the US Congress after the senate voted 79-14. This is the first time a presidential veto was overturned since Bill Clinton’s presidency in 1998.


Bush considered many of the water projects not important, one of which included the coastal restoration of Louisiana after Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Other projects in this $23 billion water resources bill includes improving the Florida Everglades and fisheries in the Great Lake.

According to the White House Press Secretary Dana Perino, Bush “was standing up for the taxpayers.”
