Pit Boss:George Bush's Empire of Torture

Chris Floyd

December 5, 2005

Mark Follman of Salon.com proves an excellent Virgil in this harrowing tour through the sulphurous pit of George W. Bush's vast torture Hell. Bush has wrought a work of genuine evil in America's name, systematically and deliberately infecting society with moral corruption and subverting the very nature of law itself in an attempt to escape responsibility for his crimes.

I've been writing articles about Bush's use of torture since January 2002. I don't know what else to say about it. When I look at Bush's face -- however well-scrubbed, tanned and carefully made-up it is -- I can no longer see anything but oozing pustules and smears of blood, the ugliness of his spirit turned inside out.

There is no excuse or mitigation for Bush and his minons. They had ample investigative, enforcement, intelligence, military and prosecutorial tools already at their disposal to deal effectively with the problem of international terrorism by Islamic extremism -- if they had wanted to use them. They didn't want to. They are not actually serious about terrorism, except as a justification for the kind of unlimited executive power -- dictatorial power -- that Dick Cheney and his ilk have been openly dreaming about for decades. Bush and his minions wanted to torture people. They wanted to kill people. They wanted to wage war, break nations, loot and destroy. They exult in death. Their only God is power. They are the mirror-image of the oh-so-convenient "enemies" they affect to despise. Who can look on them and not be revolted?

The Salon story is behind the subscriber firewall, but you can read the entire piece on the continuation below. First though, a quick quote, from security expert Thomas Powers, to alert us to the fact that despite the increasing amount of attention being given to Bush's empire of torture, the worst is probably yet to come.

[Excerpt]: The rising backlash against torture today indicates more military and intelligence officers are realizing that the Bush administration is sinking the United States into an unprecedented moral quagmire -- one that could lead to an especially dire end. "The problems with this are huge and they're hitting home now," Powers says. "How do you let these people go, especially the ones deemed to be of no intelligence value, after they've been treated so badly? Are you just going to hold them forever? You have to ask whether or not they will eventually reach the stage of just summarily killing them. It may have happened already. This policy isn't just ineffectual -- it's complete madness." [End excerpt]

Madness, indeed. But summary execution is the logical conclusion -- the final solution -- of Bush's deliberately chosen policy. In the end, he will have to destroy the evidence of his foulest crimes: the bodies, the minds, the lives of his victims.
