>Waterboarding Was Considered Torture by the Cambodians

>If U.S. attorney general nominee Michael Mukasey needs help in deciding whether waterboarding is torture or not, perhaps he should visit the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum in Phnom Penh Cambodia, where these photos were taken. They depict the torture technique, or as Mukasey and his ilk prefer to refer to it – “enhanced interrogation technique” – used by the Pol Pot Khmer Rouge regime.

The Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum is located in the former Khmer Rouge S-21 Prison. How many years before people from around the world will visit a similar museum in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, depicting the “enhanced interrogation” technique known as waterboarding approved of and used by the Bush/Cheney Regime?

    >AFTER TORTUROUS EQUIVOCATIONSIt is not just a hearsay but has been confirmed in fact,The USA, if never stated plainly,Engages now in torture which nobody can redact,Though prospects seem to rationalists ungainly.”You see it places greater risk upon our boys abroad,Soldiers when they are captured–to be tortured.A split in the Geneva bill because my nation´s fraudMust broaden save the broken thing get sutured.”Thus goes the argument; but others turn away their eyes,Refusing to admit–since time of Adam–What has of war been hallmark: virtue tends to compromise,Warmongers clientele of some great Madam.Raping and looting, deeds of such barbarity have goneAs hand in hand with conquest since beforeThe modern age: atrocity is what all wars have done,Yet shillers look away who shill for war.This understated policy–my country as did notEngage in torture in its previous life–Has put it in position shitting on and off the pot,And there are many uses for a knife.The information as obtained from torture, often wrong,Is like the names obtained when there´s a witch-hunt,As persons “idealistic” when hysteria comes alongSo even poodles will call out a dachshund.Yet so it goes with progress: we accept the agoniesAs go with war inflicting needless extras,Barbarians so many yet so few AntigonesSo we become in torture ambidextrous.The hand that signed the paper and the citizens who readGive tacit understanding, all complicit,So taking three steps backward two steps forward we proceed,It´s not our conscience bears the blade, now is it?
