But, Senator Lieberman has significantly tipped the hat of the government, suggesting that there was torture taking place right until the date that George W. Bush left office. Given the Bush Administration’s outrageous history of committing multiple acts of torture and then lying about it, shouldn’t the American people have the right to know whether these late acts of torture actually took place?
There have been no such investigations into sexual torture by American guards in prisons in Afghanistan. The claim by Barack Obama and by Democrats and Republicans in Congress that the world already knew about what’s in the secret photographs is a blatant lie.
Yesterday, the Democrats of the US Senate moved unanimously to help cover up all past and future acts of torture by our government. Not one newspaper has yet reported on the full impact of this amendment.
