Torture Conspiracy by U.S. Government No Big News to Big Media

Last week, President George W. Bush admitted that he and the following senior members of his administration planned and approved a course of U.S. Government torture:

Vice President Dick Cheney
Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice
Former Secretary of State Colin Powell
Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld
Former CIA Director George Tenet
Former Attorney General John Ashcroft

This is a felony violation of federal torture conspiracy law. The ACLU has called for the appointment of a special prosecutor.

And yet, as Dan Froomkin points out, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Los Angeles Times, CNN, CBS and NBC have made absolutely no reports on this news.

Hello?

A conspiracy to commit torture reaching to the highest levels of American governmentand the President of the United States ADMITS IT, and that isn’t worth one measly news story?

What planet am I living on? Somebody, please tell me what planet I’m living on.

  • You’re living on the planet Apathetica, where the gravity is so intense that no one can ever summon enough energy to make it to a protest.

  • Hey, man, I know they’re never going to torture me, so why should I care? People can torture them all they want to, as long as they don’t mess with my Denali.

    Earth is a space ship for sentient beings disguised as a weirdly magical little ball that has everything in place to sustain itself. For some “unexplainable” reason there seems to be a virus or cancer effecting it that’s causing it to become unbalanced. Its temperature is rising and its “sweating” profusely.

    It appears that this planet will either grow out of it shortly (the hope) or die off and become a desolate cinder in space for a while. Perhaps the planet is killing off the virus and will reset itself to support life again, in the hope that somehow it will learn from its mistakes, in a few hundred thousand years.

    It looks like such a lovely place.
