Amnesty International The King of Hyperbole


What's Wrong with This Picture? - For one, it's not even recent!"


Amnesty International Website: Stop torture and ill-treatment in the war on terror

Excerpt:

"Human rights are under threat. The ban on torture and other cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment the most universally accepted of human rights is being undermined. In the war on terror, governments are not only using torture and ill-treatment, they are making the case that this is justifiable and necessary.

Those who claim to set their human rights standards high are at the forefront of this assault. The USA is one such government. Their conduct influences governments everywhere, giving comfort to those who commit torture routinely and undermining the very values the war on terror is supposed to defend.

They speak of coercive interrogation but when the door to torture is opened, the pressure is always upward. If one slap doesnt work, then a beating will follow. If a beating doesn't work, what comes next? We see the photographs, hear the testimonies. It is cruel, inhuman; it degrades us all.

Join our campaign to stop torture and ill-treatment in the war on terror.

"If one slap doesn't work, then a beating will follow."

Really!

Where did Amnesty International get this information? Who is the source? Was it a prior detainee? Did they just "make it up" or were they just using "hyperbole"? You know, like, "Gitmo is a Gulag!"

Where are the testimonies? Where is the proof? All accusation and no facts.

If AI can't back it up something more than this propaganda, they ought to just shut up.

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?

**UPDATED AND BUMPED****

As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

UPDATE II: Looks like I owe my source big time as yet another tip comes true as the Washington Post is on the target list as well for the CIA Prison leak.

Newsbusters Busts the MSM on Bush Event

Newsbusters, the blog of Brent Bozell's Media Research Center, exposes the MSM attempt to spin President Bush's meeting with troops into a 'staged event'.

Truth is that the event was not staged, the troops were telling their real feelings: that they support the war and our President.

I guess they might have this story mixed up with the "planted question" to Sec. Rumsfeld back in December 2004.

Yet, that wasn't the case here, Soldiers when asked, will tell you the truth.

Just like in this picture, they tell it like it is!











Michelle Malkin has links to other reactions. Also Blogs for Bush.

UPDATE I: Michelle has a further reponse from one of the soldiers in the video. Here's an excerpt:

"First of all, we were told that we would be speaking with the President of the United States, our Commander-in-Chief, President Bush, so I believe that it would have been totally irresponsible for us NOT to prepare some ideas, facts or comments that we wanted to share …
