Phony intelligence from false confessions needed to maintain Al-Qaeda myth, sexual mutilation of children advocated by White House legal architect
September 20, 2006
The Bush administration's desperation
to legitimize and legislate torture in the face of revolt from Congress,
the Senate and even Colin Powell, is an attempt to rescue the need to
have a constant supply of phony intelligence obtained from torture to
justify the war on terror - while the real horror of how the administration
advocates sexually mutilating children under the same legal definition
remains hidden from the U.S. public.
A large portion of Americans still
support the use of 'rendition' and 'pressure' because they are told
that the information obtained from such methods protects them from terrorists.
Not only is that information crude, unreliable and often misleading
- but the suffering inflicted on the victims is a horror show in comparison
to the milquetoast edited version presented via the media.
The philosophy of the Bush administration's approach
to torture is encapsulated by John "torture" Yoo, professor
of law at Berkeley, co-author of the PATRIOT Act, author of torture
memos and White House advisor.
During a December 1st debate in Chicago with Notre
Dame professor and international human rights scholar Doug Cassel, John
Yoo gave the green
light for the scope of torture to legally include sexual
torture of infants.
Cassel: If the president deems that he’s
got to torture somebody, including by crushing the testicles of the
person’s child, there is no law that can stop him?
Yoo: No treaty.
Cassel: Also no law by Congress — that is
what you wrote in the August 2002 memo…
Yoo: I think it depends on why the President thinks
he needs to do that.
By the very framework that has been established
within this context, Bush's Rose Garden speech this past Friday was
a tacit attempt to sell the justification of crushing a child's genitals
in the name of the war on terror. No you haven't entered the twilight
zone, you are witnessing the absolute sacking and moral decay of everything
that used to be America.
They are actually arguing for the legalization
of sadistic, serial killer style torture and sexual molestation of children
- the same administration that labels its critics "fascists"
is pursuing a doctrine that makes Dr. Josef Mengele look like Ronald
McDonald in comparison.

Spun as the actions of "a few bad apples,"
the Abu Ghraib torture program was sanctioned from the very top.
Janis Karpinski was scapegoated as
being party to the torture when she was in reality trying to put a stop
to it. Since the Abu Ghraib scandal she has been blowing the whistle
on who directed the torture program and how it continues to this day.
During an interview on the Alex Jones Show, Karpinski stated,
"There is overwhelming proof that torture
is going on, that it has been directed and is likely continuing, even
to this day. I don't want to believe it is but the statements from the
people just returning from the theater give every indication that in
fact it is, they still don't know where to draw the line." The
Karpinski identified the masterminds of the torture
policy as occupying the highest rungs of the Bush administration.
"The orders came right from the top, filtered
down from the secretary of defense, with the endorsement of the President,
the Vice President, whatever advisors are surrounding them, filtered
down through the Commanders in the field, these practices were not only
endorsed, but were in use at Guantanamo bay and in locations in Afghanistan.
And when General Miller visited Iraq he brought those techniques with
him. And then he sent contract interrogators who had 'performed well'
at Guantanamo Bay to Iraq as well."
Why is the Bush administration so
feverish to gut the Geneva conventions and legislate torture?
It is common knowledge that evidence
obtained from torture is completely unreliable and if anything only
muddies the waters of intelligence. The Neo-Con architects of the war
on terror could not care less whether the information obtained from
torture is accurate or not, the agenda is to artificially manufacture
the myth that there are numerous Al-Qaeda cells dotted around the world
wanting to attack America.
This process is clearly evident in
Uzbekistan, where racist dictator Islam Karimov, the man who enjoys
boiling people alive, plays ball in helping Bush and Blair maintain
the Al-Qaeda myth by providing a steady supply of tortured Muslims who
would admit to being Osama Bin Laden's rent boy just to have the cattle
Karimov, Bush and Blair have set-up
nice little back scratching society and it works like this
- Karimov has his brownshirts snatch innocent Muslims off the streets,
tortures them until they "confess" to being Al-Qaeda members,
and then in return for financial kickbacks, hands the phony confessions
to the CIA and British intelligence, who use them as propaganda to argue
the threat of the Al-Qaeda menace. In addition, the manufacturing of
an artificial 'Al-Qaeda threat' enables Karimov to propagandize his
own population into supporting his savagery through fear.
The fact that the British Ambassador
to Uzbekistan Craig Murray told the Blair government directly that false
confessions were being obtained through violent torture, didn't concern
MI6 or the CIA, who ordered the program to continue.
of the worldwide detainee and torture camps is defined by repeated examples
whereby proven top Al-Qaeda members are protected or released while
completely innocent individuals are imprisoned for no reason and tortured.
For more than a decade, Osama bin Laden had
few soldiers more devoted than Abdallah Tabarak. A former Moroccan transit
worker, Tabarak served as a bodyguard for the al Qaeda leader, worked
on his farm in Sudan and helped run a gemstone smuggling racket in Afghanistan,
court records here show.
During the battle of Tora Bora in December
2001, when al Qaeda leaders were pinned down by U.S. forces, Tabarak
sacrificed himself to engineer their escape. He headed toward the Pakistani
border while making calls on Osama bin Laden's satellite phone as bin
Laden and the others fled in the other direction.
Tabarak was captured and taken to the U.S.
Navy base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, where he was classified as such a
high-value prisoner that the Pentagon repeatedly denied requests by
the International Committee of the Red Cross to see him. Then, after
spending almost three years at the base, he was suddenly released.
The article describes how Tabarak was a proven
loyal and unceasing Al-Qaeda member with an unparalleled affinity for
Osama bin Laden.
This website has repeatedly highlighted examples
of where known terrorists, even in some cases individuals who were in
of carrying out terrorist attacks, are ordered to be released
by the US government.
And yet Pakistani gangsters admitted
to rounding up innocent people in street sweeps and selling
them to the US government as terrorists for anything up to $25,000.
These people are now at Guantanamo Bay.
Khaled Masri was abducted
off the streets of Germany by the CIA for being a suspected
terrorist, the case against him later collapsed and the U.S. government
graciously apologized for ruining his life.
In a similar
recent case, Ottawa software engineer Maher Arar, who holds
Canadian and Syrian nationality, was arrested for terrorist ties and
deported to Syria, where he was tortured. An official inquiry concluded
that Arar was completely innocent.
Only nine alleged terrorists have been brought
to trial by the US government and none have been convicted, save the
mental retard Zacarias Moussaoui who was tortured
into whistling whatever tune his handlers demanded.
In many cases, alleged terrorists like Iyman
Faris, the so-called Brooklyn Bridge bomber, turn out to
be confidants of the US government. Faris was an FBI informant.
The so-called mastermind of the 7/7 London bombing,
Haroon Rashid Aswat, was an MI6 informant whom
British intelligence had repeatedly protected in the years before the
attack in the face of attempts by intelligence agencies of other nations
to arrest him.
The policy of the highest echelons of the American
and British establishment is to torture the innocent and release the
The elite needs to maintain the facade that terrorist
cells are everywhere and that only their smothering 'protection' will
keep us safe. And yet time and time again the real terrorists are protected
and given safe passage by the military-industrial complex handlers.
Though the torture program is being sold to the
American people as a necessity in the "war of civilizations,"
it is in actual fact a trial balloon for the incarceration of political
dissidents during a time of manufactured national emergency such as
a biological terror attack or race riots.
It was announced
earlier this year that Halliburton subsidiary Kellogg,
Brown and Root had been awarded a $385 million dollar contract by Homeland
Security to construct detention and processing facilities in the event
of a national emergency.
The language of the preamble to the agreement veils
the program with talk of temporary migrant holding centers, but it is
made clear that the camps will also be used "as the development
of a plan to react to a national emergency."
Under the enemy combatant designation anyone at
the behest of the US government, even if they are a US citizen, can
and placed in an internment facility forever without trial.
Jose Padilla, an American citizen, spent over three years in a Navy
brig before he was afforded any kind of hearing. The evidence against
him was proven
to be non-existent and he was transferred to a civilian
