torture conspiracy? MSM deaf/dumb&blind to the "dark side"

Rate: 0 Flag

hi all. 3 ppl recently bookmarked me as a favorite after weeks of posts and nobody else bookmarking me. it all seems to be in response to my last post. thanks guys!! now, the pressures on. strange that a topic I least want to write about got the most response.... (I wonder if OS emails you when people *un* bookmark you....!)

again, I dont like this topic, but as long as the MSM refuses to report/investigate very significant angles, Im going to repost it. the 1st link is about a torture victim who was set to testify that a "deal" was made with him to implicate an Iraq-Al Qaeda link. he has been found dead of "suicide" and his friends say its suspicious.

my own last post on the subject, an editorial against torture, last link below.

I challenge anyone to find links in the MSM on these subjects. and if not, my [rhetorical] question is, why???

We tortured to justify war
Dick Cheney keeps saying "enhanced interrogation" was used to stop imminent attacks, but evidence is mounting that the real reason was to invent evidence linking Saddam Hussein to al-Qaida.
