Bush's Empty Words On Torture

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

Anyone catch this? The UN just celebrated the International Day in Support of Victims of Torture.
Bush happily and unselfconsciously weighed in with these words, per USA Today of 6/27:

"Freedom from torture is an inalienable human right, and we are committed to building a world where human rights are respected and protected by the rule of law."
And if it takes torturing a bunch of thugs and criminals and terrorists to get to that world, by God you can be damn sure we're the ones to do it!
