Kucinich might have been on to something


Kucinich’s articles of impeachment and a full explanation of each of them can be found here.

Article XVIII
Torture: Secretly Authorizing, and Encouraging the Use of Torture Against Captives in Afghanistan,
Iraq, and Other Places, as a Matter of Official Policy

Medical examinations of former terrorism suspects held by the U.S. military at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq and Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, found evidence of torture and other abuse that resulted in serious injuries and mental disorders, according to a human rights group.

For the most extensive medical study of former U.S. detainees published so far, Physicians for Human Rights had doctors and mental health professionals examine 11 former prisoners. The group alleges finding evidence of U.S. torture and war crimes and accuses U.S. military health professionals of allowing the abuse of detainees, denying them medical care and providing confidential medical information to interrogators that they then exploited.

“Some of these men really are, several years later, very severely scarred,” said Barry Rosenfeld, a psychology professor at Fordham University who conducted psychological tests on six of the 11 detainees covered by the study. “It’s a testimony to how bad those conditions were and how personal the abuse was.”

As if that wasn’t enough comes this stinging indictment by a former top military official who served under Bush.

“After years of disclosures by government investigations, media accounts and reports from human rights organizations, there is no longer any doubt as to whether the current administration has committed war crimes….[T]he only question that remains to be answered is whether those who ordered the use of torture will be held to account.”

It appears these crimes were committed at the behest of the infamous “neocons” whose agenda is still undefined and unclear. Career military officers and bureaucrats objected to the methods being pushed on them to extract information.

a probe by the Senate Armed Services Committee revealed how senior Pentagon officials pushed for harsher interrogation methods over the objections of top military lawyers. Those methods later surfaced in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Let’s not forget, senior Pentagon officials at that time consisted of the likes of Richard Perle, Paul Wolfowitz, Douglas Feith, and others who ranked equally as senior neocons.

Barack’s Muslim “problem”


Barack Obama doesn’t want people to even think he is a Muslim so he’s now disassociating himself from his Muslim supporters.

Obama, who is Christian and promises to turn a page on America’s cultural wars, has struggled to counter false Internet rumors that he is a Muslim.

Obama’s vigorous denials have frustrated some followers of Islam because of the implication that there is something wrong with the religion.

In separate incidents Monday at the rally in Detroit, which boasts one of the largest Muslim communities in the United States, two women were told they could not sit in the section that forms the visual backdrop behind Obama.

“I was coming to support him, and I felt like I was discriminated against by the very person who was supposed to be bringing this change,” Aref told Politico.com.

“The message that I thought was delivered to us was that they do not want him associated with Muslims or Muslim supporters,” she said.

I’m not surprised by this latest development. Obama’s detractors have made Islam so disgusting in the eyes of the American public that he will do anything to remove himself from appearing to even like Muslims. Instead of asking, ‘what’s wrong with being a Muslim’ Obama’s political body language seems to me ‘don’t stick that tag on me.’ It’s more of the same Islamophobia but coming from the party of jack-asses.
