Rumsfeld Openly Admits Guantanamo Torture
Indictments won't stop Neo-Cons, closing Gitmo will be the first step

When Donald Rumsfeld was asked about the force feeding of detainees at Guantanamo Bay recently, a brutal practice that involves inserting tubes as wide as fingers directly through stomachs and nostrils without any anesthetic as prisoners convulse and vomit blood, Rummy replied, "I'm not a doctor."
Rumsfeld didn't deny that this torture was taking place, he simply claimed ignorance of the exact nature of the procedure.
Rumsfeld was defending his decision to bar a UN investigation of Guantanamo Bay.
On the surface, the UN investigating any torture camp is like Ted Bundy being invited to case Ed Gein's house. There isn't going to be an impartial appraisal of the evidence.
However, despite the United Nations being a corrupt client of the US government, any organization has good people in its ranks. Potential whistleblowers are not something the Bush regime wants more of and the veto of the inquiry was partly to prevent more mud from being thrown.
The blockage of the investigation is just another example of a government that wants to know everything about your life, wants your privacy to be totally transparent, but is getting more secretive all the time in covering up its own criminal activities.
General Janis Karpinsky's media pilgrimage, in which she directly points the finger at Rumsfeld for being the architect of the torture program, has only made waves in the alternative media and the establishment mouthpieces dare not touch it. Where are the indictments? Where are the criminal proceedings against Rumsfeld?
Scott McClellan tells us that the Bush administration is unequivocally against torture under any circumstances and yet it is Bush and his handler Dick Cheney publicly blocking the legislation that would outlaw torture.
Another stark reminder that the rhetoric of this occupational government and its actions stand 180 degrees apart.
The Washington Post reported that the government had set up secret gulag compounds throughout Eastern Europe to house prisoners without trial or legal representation, largely something we already knew.
Specially designated torture planes transport nameless victims of the faux 'war on terror' between different third world dictatorships for their security services to work the cattle prod magic on poor bewildered goat herders and shoemakers.
Meanwhile, the real Al-Qaeda or Al-CIAda miraculously escape from maximum security prisons. Whoops!
Scooter Libby’s replacement David S. Addington was another torture advocate saying that the Geneva convention was obsolete and Bush was above the law. Cheney's new chief of staff John Hannah has also been outed as the go between for bogus intelligence on Iraq from agent provocateur 'exile groups' and the Intelligence establishment.
A recent PBS documentary confirms what we had been reporting for three years, that General Rick Baccus was fired from Guantanamo because he refused to torture detainees.
Americans posing as detainees enter Gitmo to gage procedure and when these guys are getting beaten half to death and screaming out, 'I’m an American I’m not really a detainee I’m just here to test protocol', these monsters just carry on kicking their teeth in.
The torture masters set the policy and their cadre of hired thugs are more than willing to carry it out.
In the meantime, the most popular talk show host in America calls Gitmo a holiday home and says that the Abu Ghraib prison guards were "just blowing off some steam" when they raped children and beat detainees to death.
The ultimate responsibility for this horror story lies with us. We allow these bastards to set this policy under the guise that they're protecting us from the evil terrorists.
Meanwhile the borders remain as porous as ever and our liberties are diseased by the poison apple of a false patriotism which mistakes love of country for worship of government.
Indictments of gopher underlings like Scooter Libby do not signal the end is nigh for the Neo-Cons.
Only when Guantanamo Bay and every other torture camp on the planet, erected 'in the name of freedom', are closed and razed to the ground will we be able to truly say we've made progress in the battle to restore the true purpose of America as envisaged by the founders.
