Torture Doublethink At All Time High
So much torture, bloodshed, deceit. You cannot make your young people
practice torture twenty-four hours a day and not expect to pay a price for
Hundreds of stories and reports are now emerging everyday concerning
renditioning, secret prisons, camps on foreign soil and fresh detainee abuse.
Such reports are continually framed by endless "debates" in the media
of when is the right time to use torture and who do we use it on? Add all this
to the TV dramas that depict torture as necessary and the government hanging
sword that is the "terrorist threat", and it is clear to see that
our culture has become saturated in torture.
The fact that we are even having to face the question of whether torture is
a consideration of any modern civilized State is mind-blowing in itself. Even
the most heinous of bloodthirsty empires throughout history have dismissed the
use of and even outlawed torture.
According to an AP
poll released today, most Americans and a majority of people in Britain,
France and South Korea say torturing terrorism suspects is justified at least
in rare instances. Almost two-thirds in the United States support such interrogations
in the U.S. by their own government. Unbelievable.
The attitude of "if it saves lives any measures of interrogation should
be permissible" is fundamentally flawed. Under torture a person will say
anything he thinks his captors want to hear, whether it is true or false, if
he believes it will relieve his suffering. Torture never produces reliable results,
it only creates false leads and implicates the wrong people. Furthermore, and
this perhaps the most critical and bone chillingly dangerous point, torture
is the MOST degrading, demoralizing, hideous thing one human being can do to
another. Almost two-thirds in the United States support such interrogations
in the U.S. by their own government. Unbelievable.
There is a coordinated, outlined agenda underway at the hands of the globalist
crazy Neo-Cons to redefine the meaning of torture for a "post 9/11 world"
and make it commonplace within our culture. Torture has always existed since
the dawn of time, yet no authority throughout the history of the planet has
ever openly admitted to its practice - until now. Not even the Nazis had the
gall to go as far as the Neo-Cons have.
Manfred Nowak, the U.N.'s Special Rapporteur on Torture has said that
"Now we have for the first time both an academic and a political debate
saying 'We are living under new conditions. Sept. 11 has changed the rules of
the game and that's why we have to rethink the absolute prohibition on torture.'"
The Orwellian Newspeak emanating from the globalist Neocons is literally redefining
and undermining the entire ethical beliefs system of the Western world. Washington
says the Geneva Convention does not apply to foreign captives in its "war
on terrorism" because they are "enemy combatants". Human rights
activists say the US is still bound by the 1984 U.N. "Convention against
Torture," to which it is a signatory. Yet the Neocons say they are not
torturing, preferring to refer to a practice of "torture lite" or
"Enhanced Interrogation Techniques". And so round and round the false
debate goes on whilst the agenda sinks into the cultural mindset.
Amid the furor of the rendition issue, the weekend saw the release of the "CIA
Guide to torture" which revealed several techniques employed by officials.
The most severe of such Enhanced Interrogation techniques is known as "water
boarding", whereby a prisoner is bound to a board, feet raised and head
slightly below the feet, ABC said. Cellophane is wrapped over the prisoner's
face and water is poured over him, inducing a feeling of drowning.
"The cellophane is a modern addition to a technique that had its origins
in the Spanish Inquisition," said Tom Malinowski of Human Rights Watch,
adding that the State Department itself defines the technique as torture.
Not only is this another admission of torture, it contains another admission
that the CIA under globalist control is torturing people TO DEATH as it was
revealed that more detainees in Afghanistan and Iraq have died because "inexperienced
officers miscalculated the time detainees could endure under the treatment."
According to Human
Rights First, the U.S. Government has acknowledged 28 confirmed or suspected
homicides of detainees in U.S. custody. Only one of these homicides
occurred at Abu Ghraib. The Government admits 108 People Have Died in U.S. Custody.
63 of the 108 detainee deaths occurred at locations other than Abu Ghraib. Many
stories of torture, leading to death have also emerged from Guantanamo Bay.
Think about that for a minute, the government is openly killing people. TORTURING
PEOPLE TO DEATH.
Times reported that no leaders of Al-Qaeda were found at Guantanamo Bay.
Most of them were shoemakers, farmers who had never even heard of America and
people who were given guns by the Taliban and shoved onto the front lines.
army report on Abu Ghraib said that between seventy five and ninety percent
of prisoners were totally innocent and just hadn't had their papers in order.
The Former General there, Janis Karpinski, confirmed this in a recent
interview on the Alex Jones show:
"That's correct and I believe that it remains so today because they are
still doing these raids, these round ups where they will go out and target an
individual, and whoever happens to be around that individual, they bring them
all in. And then there is no avenue to release them, once they are tagged as
security detainees, they fall into this relatively new and unsupervised category."
Karpinski also revealed that the torture has continued, long after the scandal
Human Rights First has also voiced
deep concern over the amount of other secret detention centres all over
the world in which torture is very much operational and continuing full speed
And as if this wasn't enough, the renditioning issue, which we have been reporting
on for around two years now, has broken into the mainstream and is much larger
operation than at first thought.
300 flights operated by US intelligence agency CIA that we know of have
landed at European airports, whilst revelations of camps
in eastern Europe have come to light.
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.
Condoleeza Rice has indicated that these camps are not even secret, and that
they operate with the full cooperation of elements of the respective Sovereign
Governments in the different countries they are located. Once again this is
all out in the open. Rice does not deny rendition flights are taking place,
she simply denies they are secret. Furthermore Rice is adamant that the detainees
are not being moved to be tortured. This is in some bizarre and twisted way
true because the Administration is redefining the meaning of torture.
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. The Administration is twisting
and contorting what torture actually is, just as they did with preemptive war
and preventive war, just as they do with everything. If something does not fit
the agenda, the attitude is not to alter the agenda to work around it, but rather
to alter the real meaning of something to fit it into the agenda.
Condoleeza Rice this week asked the world to "trust her" on the issue
of torture. This is a woman who said that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass
destruction capable of producing a "mushroom cloud" over an American
city. A woman who said Saddam Hussein sheltered al Qaeda terrorists in Baghdad
and helped train some in chemical weapons development.
By not denying anything Rice is as good as admitting it.
"The Bush administration has made it abundantly clear that it believes,
with no apologies, that the ends justify the means. Lying is simply a means
to an end. What Condi Rice is telling Europeans is "pay no attention to
our lies; just accept that we are liars for a good and proper cause." Says
Craig Roberts, former US Secretary of the Treasury and Wall St. Journal
When directly questioned by MPs on the CIA flights this week, British Prime
Minister Tony Blair said he has accepted US assurances and the practice of transporting
terror suspects for questioning in foreign countries is a long-standing
U-S policy. If Tony Blair knows this to be the case, and he knew British
airports were being used for stop offs, then why is the British Foreign
Secretary Jack Straw writing to Condoleeza Rice demanding to know what is
going on with these flights? These two actions do not add up. The reality may
be that Tony Blair's authority has been overruled by his elite higher ups whilst
Straw is acting under pressure as he is directly under the spotlight of all
European Foreign Offices with Britain currently chairing the EU presidency.
Blatent covert activity is influencing the actions of politicians at the highest
So we should trust the Administration over the renditioning then. OK, what
about the admitted botch
job involving the innocent German citizen Khaled al-Masri who was grabbed
whilst on vacation in Europe, shipped away on the rendition plane and shoved
into a cell in Afghanistan and tortured for five months?
Or what about Mamdouh
Habib, an innocent Australian citizen, a former cafe owner who was grabbed
and moved between Egypt, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Guantanamo Bay until his
release at the beginning of 2005? Habib told the BBC he was "brain-washed,
beaten and given electric shocks." "I just repeated what they wanted
me to say," he admitted.
There are countless other stories
of torture from Guantanamo Bay, where the military intend to build
court and execution chambers, once they are done torturing detainees.
Our culture is now saturated with the torture agenda, it is everywhere and
it is dangerously sinking into reality. 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, the Vice President for torture,
blocking the legislation that would outlaw torture.
Former CIA chiefs, military Commanders and Generals and Government officials
asserted that the government is now in the hands of torturing psychopaths.
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 BBC's Flagship radio news program also backs
torture by the CIA and MSNBC like to debate
24, Threat Matrix, and the British drama Spooks,
which is a drama about the British MI5, feature plots in which the use of torture
is advocated as a morally just measure.
When the evidence for the Iraq war was revealed as LIES, the back up was to
claim the removal of Saddam alone was worthy justification. This was because
he was a brutal torturer and that is unacceptable. Yet we now have the same
group who told us torture is bad, telling us it is OK when they do it. In what
way can torture be unacceptable in one instance and acceptable in another?
Torture is torture, it involves inflicting severe pain and distress, and in
some cases killing people. No rational thinking person could ever think that
is acceptable, especially when in use by a group that claims its aim is to spread
freedom throughout the world.
The Doublethink that people are engaging in here is vast and out of hand. All
over the US and Europe people are advocating torture. Almost two-thirds in the
United States support the use of torture on a suspect by their own government
IN THEIR OWN COUNTRY.
There is a deliberate agenda at hand to reflect an image of America to the
world as a corrupt, evil, deceiving, hypocritical and brutal power. The Bush
administration is being played like a fiddle and as each horror story scandal
emerges, America sinks further into the waiting jaws of its 'savior' - the dark
stalker of global government.
We can only attempt to fight against this agenda by exposing the deceit, lies
and downright incredulity of those who are pushing it. The enslavement of the
minds of the American and European people and the attempt to make them think
in the same way these crazies do is hideous and we will continue to expose their
agenda until we defeat it or are wiped out in the effort of defeating it.
You can chain me, you can torture me, you can even destroy this body,
but you will never imprison my mind.
