how'd you like to be waterboarded Doug?

its pretty hard for Condi to deny it when at the same time you have a Vice President who wants to allow it and have the CIA exempt, AG Gonzales who wrote a memo defining torture that would only be defined by major organ failure.. as well as the 90 or so detainees that have died under interrogation and no ones been charged or held accountable.

the can of worms is open..

Race or ethnicity is not a determining factor as to who I consider my brother or sister.

My spiritual belief is that we all are children of God. But there are close family ties and there are distant relatives...

I believe that people become close because they have walked in each other's shoes, or they can image doing so. I believe sharing one or more significant experiences-particularly a crises-that are the same or similar can forge strong bonds between individuals regardless of other differences they may have. Sharing similar or compatible interests and/or opinions on matters of importance can further connect individuals to each other.

Maybe it's a vibe thing...I can't explain it. But yes, though I am likely never to meet them, on a number of levels, I am honored to call Jon and some others here my brothers. And I'm equally honored to call a number of women on Mudcat my sisters.

well it actually looks like she after two weeks of denial and not really saying anything about US wrongdoing, she finally came out and defended the 'renditions' as a necessary part of the US war on terror, and that whatever was done was with the full knowledge of the govts involved.
(of course it didnt help her that VP CHeney publicly came out in support of torture, and the CIA continues to practice 'waterboarding', tying someone to a plank and immersing their head in water to the point where they believe theyre drowning, (even while the State dept. condemns other govts that practice this sort of technique).

words she will come to regret in the end. THey are all absolutely true of course but it will open a can of worms, as now it is very likely that there will be inquiries in those countries that were involved, and will unearth more illegalities of the American gulag, that this failing administration would prefer to keep quiet about.

Dianavan, I respect your views on this, but I don't entirely agree. I do think that Saddam Hussein was a menace who had to be dealt with; I do believe that promoting human rights and self-determination for the peoples of the world are appropriate goals for the US; and I do believe that, to a point, it is important for the US and other countries to take some measures to ensure that energy resources continue to be available to the world. I expect that others on this forum might disagree with some of that, and that's okay with me, but these are my views.

However, assuming for the sake of argument that these are legitimate aims, I still can't fathom how we can realistically expect to advance them by abusing people in our custody. Even if we somehow bypass the moral issue, as a practical matter we need to win people over or we will never accomplish any of this. It's the old "hearts and minds" objective from Vietnam war days; until we truly recognize that as our primary objective, and align our tactics with our objectives, we don't stand a chance.

I know that the "talking points" routine has worked to a large degree on many issues within the US. But I wonder if she thinks that there is a point at which if she repeats that the US does not condone or support torture so many times, that the US critics, who are mainly the REST OF THE WORLD, will believe it? Even the domestic supporters of Bush no longer believe what he says. And it is now one of the worst-kept "secrets" that the US uses other countries to locate the torture, but that it has the winking approval of the US.

This administration is the scariest group of people in power I have ever seen or could even conceive of. I only hope that the forces of good will ultimately triumph.

I don't think Secretary Rice's sex or race have anything to do with this. I judge her on her words and actions.

Is there more rumor and innuendo than fact in this discussion? Undoubtedly, but the Bush administration has it within their power to put the facts out there. That they have not done so suggests to many of us that the facts don't support their position.

I am an American citizen and military veteran who is appalled by this. The simple fact is that most people simply do not believe the Bush administration's denials that they torture people and/or send people elsewhere to be tortured. Given the administration's resistance to a law prohibiting torture (despit overwhelming support for the law in the Republican-dominated Senate), their creative interpretation of the meaning of the word "torture" (denials are easy when you get to define the terms used in the debate), their refusal to give straight answers on the question of secret prisons, their reluctance to allow unfettered international inspections of detention facilities at Guantanamo and elsewhere, their reliance on carefully-worded (and endlessly repeated) sound bites as a substitute for real discussion of the issues, and their history of misleading the world in support of their aims, they simply have no credibility left on questions of this sort.

Torture is a profound moral wrong, and that's the primary reason I am opposed to it. I also believe that it is strategically wrong. What the Bush team doesn't seem to realize is that, to the extent the US has legitimate aims in the world (and I believe that at least some of our aims are legitimate), we are engaged primarily in a war of ideas and ideals. And we undercut our own ideals, and our standing in the world, when we don't adhere to basic norms of civilized conduct and respect for universal human rights. Any small tactical gains that we might make based on information gathered through torture are outweighed -- dramatically -- by our reduced moral authority and damaged credibility as promoter of freedom and human rights for the peoples of the world. It amazes me that the Bush administration can't see that as clearly as the rest of the world does.

Minimum wage too high? No Problem: Outsource to where people work for a pittance.
You've got a lethally dangerous industrial process? No Problem: Outsource to where there aren't the same level of health and safety laws. (Bhopal?)
Your laws don't allow detention without trial? No Problem: Outsource to Guantanomo

Top Terrorists Shipped out of Europe Prior to Rice Visit

American broadcaster ABC News revealed that two CIA secret prisons operating in Eastern Europe were shuttered in November after Human Rights Watch reported their existence in Poland and Romania. The prisoners held there are now being held in North Africa.



AP
Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, the alleged Sept. 11 mastermind, is thought to be held in a secret CIA prison.
Even as US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice visits Europe this week amid the CIA "extraordinary renditions" scandal, it appears that the transfer of terror suspects has continued.

In preparation for Rice's visit, 11 high-value al-Qaida suspects held in Eastern Europe were removed to an unnamed North African nation, current and former CIA officers told ABC News on condition of anonymity. The CIA sources refused to tell ABC to exactly which countries the suspects had been taken, but said it was in the Northern African desert. Furthermore, 10 of the prisoners were allegedly interrogated using so-called "enhanced interrogation techniques" -- questioning procedures some have said are equivalent to torture.

the usa turned up late for WW1
the usa turned up late for WW2
the usa turned up late for the war on Islamo-fascissm. It had been going on for years before 9/11. I had to get out of Algeria on account of it.
the usa never notices wars until they get a smack in the mouth themselves. Pure self interest- One of Bush's first moves in office was to scrap an OECD suggestion on controlling terrorist cash flow in offshore banking centers. Not so smart in the long run.

The cia's main reason for extraordinary rendition is that they are a crap spy agency who are in major panic mode trying to catch up on the terrs. Look at the first WTC bombing - how many intercepts did they have but were too uneducated to translate? go check it out.
The whole Abu ghraib nonsense was down to believing advice from Israel on prisoner disorientation. Having a naked girl interrogate a hyper-religous nut in guantanamo might work. Trying it with a secular ex-saddam army officer just might be a bit daft.

Dubya is fanatical about "loyalty" in his subordinates. So he is surrounded by third rate sycophants. They wouldn't even let him watch TV reports from New Orleans.
BTW where the heck is stormin' norman. Has he got Alzheimers or have they renditioned him too?

There is a very obvious reason for rendition. It is less to do with keeping the prisoners out of the US than giving "other" security forces a crack at them.
Long term the thing that noone will ever forgive the shrub and his cronies for is that they proved that the French WERE RIGHT ALL ALONG.
Long after this is over and Turkey has moved into Iraq and america are desperately trying to pay off the deficit the sodding french will be rubbing our noses in how much smarter than the rest of us they were. We will never here the end of it.

At the same time the BBC summaries her as saying that "the US always respected the sovereignty of allies, abided by the law and did not allow torture."

From the Telegraph on-line. The Chinese leaders here are laughing up there sleeves. With Bush telling them to respect human rights and not arbitarily lock up people they suspect he is looking a complete prat,,,if he did not look like a complete prat before.

What is rendition?
(Filed: 05/12/2005)

• "Rendition" is bureaucratese for the CIA's practice of kidnapping terrorist suspects and sending them to secret detention centres out of the public eye and reach of the US justice system.

• It was authorised under President Bill Clinton in the mid-1990s to counter the threat of Islamist terrorism and overcome CIA difficulties in obtaining a conviction against suspects.

• It was expanded hugely under President George W Bush, who gave the CIA sweeping new powers after the September 2001 terrorist attacks.

• Since then the staff of the Counter-Terrorist Centre, the CIA branch which oversees renditions, is reported to have quadrupled to more than 1,000 people.

• More than 100 more people have disappeared or been "rendered" in the last few years, in addition to the detainees being held at Guantanamo Bay.

• The most common destinations are Egypt and Jordan, which are known to have tortured prisoners.

The US insists that it does not send people to countries which employ torture.

Thole?

I thought that thole pins were bits of boats. If you have a small-ish wooden boat you sometimes have two rigid pins sticking up out of the gunwhales. You put the oar between the two pins, in order to row.

So two thole pins make a rowlock (say it carefully)

Just been watching Miss Rice on BBC TV denying that America sends prisoners to Eastern Europe to be tortured....She was less than convincing!!

Martin Luther King and Rosa Parks must be turning in their graves.
How can the American people thole these creatures?
What shame and indignities must they inflict upon you before you stand up and say "Enough"!!....Ake
