Torture Camp to be Kept Open

Friday, January 13, 2006

How else will George be able to keep us safe? Remember, the hard hand of the law is being forced down the throat of the world. Nevermind the proof of widespread abuse. Nevermind the lack of judicial due process for the "caged animals" (they have long been stripped of their humanity or presumption of innocence). Nevermind the role it plays in the souring of international relations towards the United States; cuz the Boy President needs his fix.
President Bush rejected on Friday a suggestion by Germany's new chancellor that the U.S. prison camp at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, be shut down.

The camp on the U.S. Navy base there is "a necessary part of protecting the American people," Bush said after meeting with Chancellor Angela Merkel at the White House.

In a joint news conference, Merkel said she raised the issue with Bush, and she described it as one of the differences between the United States and Germany.

"There sometimes have been differences of opinion, I mentioned Guantanamo in this respect," Merkel said.

Good for the Chancellor. While it is obvious international pressure means squat to the Bush War Council, I am glad to hear them still voicing their opposition to its abhorrent practices.
