Do we say screw international law?

80s,

for pete's sake


I have not watched the interview

but, do you really beleive the President is against torture, for the geneva convention, these latest talking points he has been pushing?

it is so obvious that he is trying to turn the tide
on his low poll ratings
and help the Nov elections

many in the GOP are walking away from him
do you still have as much faith in his as you did, say
four years ago?

to be fair, it's not that Amnesty has declared it illegal, but that Amnesty -- who certainly does know the Geneva Convention, and knows that the US has ratified this -- contends that it is a violation of international law.

US policy has always been mediated by international law, even when some wish otherwise.

Honestly? No, but it's not because of the war on terror.

He should have just said, "And I look much better in a swimsuit Mr. President, interview over"

If people can go on and on about Katie Couric's looks, I ain't gonna feel guilty about that. Glib, and fab. Who knew what was lurking under that suit..

Point taken.

But, should we tell Bush?

but this is what Bush and Co. have been doing -- they've allowed the McCain amendment which makes explicit what is and what isn't acceptable interrogation for members of the US Armed Forces, yet they've made the CIA exempt from these standards.

Contrast that to the Brian Williams interview about two weeks ago. Maybe Glibby wants the anchor chair!
