Mukasey's skillful evasions on torture - - The Washington Times, America's Newspaper

Mukasey's skillful evasions on torture - - The Washington Times, America's Newspaper: "On television, and in the transcript of Attorney General Michael Mukasey's Jan. 30 testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, he certainly showed that he is semantically much more skilful in evading questions than his predecessor, Alberto Gonzales. But Mr. Mukasey also demonstrated that he will not restore the credibility of the Justice Department's commitment to the rule of law — under this administration.


Mr. Mukasey's continued refusal to say whether waterboarding is torture or to conduct a criminal investigation of its use by the CIA is ludicrous in the face of the newly published, heavily documented 849-page 'Torture and Democracy' by Professor Darius Rejali. In this history, including the present practices of torture, written by an internationally recognized expert on the subject, the definition, Mr. Attorney General, is plain: 'Waterboarding is forced drowning, interrupted, for the prisoner will die if the flow of water is not cut off in time.' And yet, on Jan. 6, the Associated Press reported the White House said waterboarding is legal."

relationship to heroin. Much like a heroin
addict who will lie, cheat, and steal to feed
their vice, certain members of our government
will lie, cheat, and steal to continue their
dysfunctional and deadly relationship with the
KSA — a relationship that is rotting this nation
and its leaders from the inside out.
