Bush is telling those Hippies in Congress that he won’t take orders from the Hate and Ashbury Street rabble when it comes to keeping this country secure from Islamism:
US President George W. Bush plans to veto legislation passed by the Senate to bar the CIA from using harsh interrogation methods including waterboarding, a spokeswoman said Thursday.
“The president will veto that bill,” said White House spokeswoman Dana Perino.
“The United States needs the ability to interrogate effectively, within the law, captured Al-Qaeda terrorists.”
The Democratic-led Senate voted 51-45 on Wednesday in favor of a bill calling for the Central Intelligence Agency to adopt the US Army Field Manual, which forbids waterboarding and other types of coercive interrogation methods.
It’s heartening that America has 45 patriots in the Senate, including Senator Brownback. But the assembly is currently controlled by Harry Reid, who takes his marching orders from Nancy Pelosi, who takes hers from “Acid Bob,” some San Francisco lunatic who has way too much information about her personal proclivities. Acid Bob also has thousands of idiot Hippie friends, who are the kingmakers in the worthless state of California. A once-decent state was taken over by moonbat drug dealers, and suddenly idiots like Pelosi and Barbara Boxer got jobs. A cautionary tale for the rest of us.
However, the vote fell short of the two-thirds majority needed to overcome a presidential veto. The House of Representatives passed similar legislation in December.
Democratic New York Senator Charles Schumer said that if Bush “vetoes intelligence authorization, he will be voting in favor of waterboarding.”
Good! God wants America to waterboard. It’s not torture; it doesn’t even drown these rats, much as they deserve it. It merely simulates drowning, much as Islam simulates religion. It is not torture; it’s a harmless prank, not unlike those encountered during fraternity hazings. Anyone who grew up with siblings has endured far worse pain and humiliation. Why, my brother Scott once told me I was the adopted offspring of an American sailor and a Cuban prostitute. The emotional pain he caused was far, far worse than the time he stuck a garden hose in my mouth and turned it on. I speak with substantial personal experience on these matters. Waterboarding is not torture, and the only people who’d say otherwise are worthless Hippie Kumbaya-singers and Islamists whose personal idea of a good time is sawing your head off just for setting foot in Arabia.
Asked by a reporter if Bush, who leaves office in 2009, would be labeled as the first US president who favored torture, Perino rejected the assertion and dismissed Schumer’s argument as “simplistic.”
“Across the board people will see, over time, that this was a president who put in place tools to protect the country against terrorists,” Perino said.
Amen, Dana. The first President who favored torture was Thomas Jefferson. His Democrat Party has tormented this country for the last 230 years.
Across the waterboard, Americans will see their nation saved and valuable intelligence gleaned from worthless scum captives whose lives are worth less than a single pinky from one of their victims. The proof is in the pudding- not one single domestic terrorist incident since 2001. Bush has kept this country safe, but the lefties want to open up Guantanamo and let the terrorists have jobs in your town. They oppose putting water up someone’s nose, yet they favor letting terrorists infiltrate into American society. You can’t make these crazies up, folks.
“The president does not favor torture. The president favors making sure we do all these programs within the law,” she said, adding that “all the interrogations that have taken place in this country have been done in a legal way.”
Perino said the United States does not currently use waterboarding, a simulated drowning technique denounced by rights groups as torture, even though the CIA has admitted using the technique in the past.
She reiterated the administration’s assertion last week that it would not rule out the use of such techniques in the future.
“Currently under the law it is not (allowed),” she said. “As we said last week as well, we are not going to talk about what may or may not be lawful in the future.”
Hopefully, that will soon change. America needs waterboarding in domestic law enforcement. Too many crimes are effected under the cover of phantasmic “civil liberties” having no basis in rational Christian society. The Fifth Amendment has killed more innocent victims than any gun in the world. With waterboarding, the police could change all that. Non-coercive interrogation methods utilizing a substance already comprising 80% of your body structure would soon teach these criminals the meaning of justice. If you didn’t learn civic responsibility on your neighbor’s slip-and-slide as a juvenile, your local police department will teach it to you as an adult. Hopefully, President Brownback will make it so.
Perino said the intelligence community’s view is that the Army Field Manual sets an inappropriate standard for seasoned CIA interrogators who are working to extract information from sophisticated militant operatives.
“Today with this bill that they are sending to us they would basically repeal the terrorist interrogation program in favor of something that will definitely weaken our ability to protect the country,” Perino said.
“This Army Field Manual is something that is public for all to see, and we know that Al-Qaeda trains to resist interrogation techniques such as those.”
That’s another good point. Al Qaeda is an organization of crazies who’d rather blow themselves to smithereens killing you than see you driving a car or buying groceries at the local supermarket. Are we really supposed to believe that loud music and uncomfortable seating arrangements are going to make these loonies crack? Get real. Even sticking water up their noses is barely enough to get a peep out of them; notice that not a one has told us where Bin Laden lives. Something harsher should be done, but nothing currently legal will suffice. Still, waterboarding has given us the intelligence we need to defend ourselves, even if we don’t gain the additional intelligence we need to pursue the enemy abroad. I’ll take defensive victories over shameful defeats any day. And so will the other 300 million Americans who want to live secure, happy, and free from terrorist incidents. Waterboarding is the wellspring of our nation’s security.
