Big shocker: Obama will not prosecute torturers

April 16, 2009 at 6:18 pm 2 comments

The ACLU demanded disclosure of the memos of the Bush administration that authorize torture.

And Obama did release them.

But…he is not going to prosecute the torturers.

Even though he said:

In one of my very first acts as President, I prohibited the use of these interrogation techniques by the United States because they undermine our moral authority and do not make us safer.

But here is another big surprise:

CIA officials who participated in enhanced interrogations during the Bush administration will be defended by government attorneys should charges be brought against them.

This blogger points out that America has a legal double standard.

As Bush would say: America doesn’t torture. Freedom tickles.

    Perhaps they “were only following orders” …

    Thanks for linking to my post. I’m glad to have found your blog. It’s always nice to see blogs that work at getting the truth out.

    I don’t think it really matters if they believed they following orders or not. Commonsense should tell someone that slamming people against a wall or waterboarding them is torture. As long as America has one standard of justice for the powerful and and a lessor standard for everyone else America will be failing to live up to the ideals it was founded on.
