Bush lent on the press to withhold information,[ torture scandal pics], planted false stories in the press to promote an illegal war [ Judith Miller WMDs ] and now we hear they insisted that the newspapers use the Govts words, not their own!


....and the right has the gall to call Obama a tyrant!

Check your house for bugs. The Govt might have broken into your house today and planted listening devices. Your phone is tapped and your computer has been loaded with a trojan...they can monitor everything. Thanks to Bush, they have the power. Is that in the USCON?

The press marches in step.

If you've ever had the funny feeling that the media has largely bent over backwards to normalize and legitimize the practice of waterboarding once the United States started doing it, guess what? You've had good reason! It's all laid out in a new study from Harvard's Kennedy School of Government, highlighted today by Glenn Greenwald over at Salon.

There are two key findings worth highlighting. First, did it seem like around 2004, major newspapers just stopped referring to waterboarding as torture, after decades of properly categorizing it as such? Why yes, they did!</div></div>

Do you even know what the definition of "waterboarding" is ... before the moonbat left changed it that is?

Of course you don't.

Bush and Cheney should be hung for treason. The entire world knows that waterboarding IS torture.

Cheney's daughter can only come up with the ridiculous statement that our own troops are waterboarded, by our own military, with doctors present, taking their vitals, and with no intent of allowing them to become ill, or die, as if that is the same as whenn it is done to prisoners!

Breaking decades old American Treaties, is treason.

Everything they did was done in secret, and I do not think it has all come out eve yet!

The right owns the press in this country...it's obvious. We are being taken from within, just as the communists promised, and when you study how many Neocons were communist sympathizers in their college days, it's not surprising.

If you go by the WWII war crimes tribunal definition I concur.

Do you know what that definition is ... or do you simply lack the curiosity required to find out, happy instead with the party spoon feeding you the definition of "TRUTH" on the issue?

Does it bother you that leading dems were well aware of the techniques being used, and voiced concerns that the techniques weren't stern enough ... or are you happy with your usual "BLACKWHITE" and "DOUBLETHINK" practices?

Are you aware that accusations of "TORTURE" at Gitmo have increased under the current regime ... or are you allowed info not spoon delivered?

Don't you remember that dearest leader promised to close Gitmo 18 months ago, yet now insists that we need it to stay open ... or have you simply erased your memory of prior "TRUTH" as the regime requires of it's lower level agitprops?

And, FWIW, no reply is needed ... the questions are rhetorical in nature and the answers self evident from witnessing your Orwellian obedience to party and fuehrer.

The point is that when the Govt decided WB was not torture, the press fell in line and did not call it torture either, whereas they had done before.
