June 23, 2004
"Torture is not a part of our soul and our being." The president said that on June 22, 2004, but when it counted, that same president claimed the right to waive our anti-torture laws not to mention the Geneva treaties covering prisoners of war. According to the Washington Post, Don Rumsfeld, the swaggering secretary of Defense, authorized threatening prisoners with dogs, and stripping them naked for interrogation sessions that could last for 20 hours. Now we know how the dogs got to Iraq. All religious items were taken from prisoners.
Incredible as it seems, this may not be the worst of it. The administration is altering the infamous Justice Department memo to bring it up to date.
The president should contact lost and found for our nation's soul.
