Pied Piper Pitt: "Who should be going to jail for torture?"

William Rivers Pitt has once again proven himself to essentially be a coward. Just recently DUmmieland was in an uproar because Obama seemed to nix any chance of investigations into laughable "torture" by the Bush administration. One voice noticeably absent was that of Pitt. Why? Because, despite his Fitzmas disgrace, Pitt is probably harboring divorced-from-reality notions that he might one day be chosen by The One to help lead this nation. Well, shortly after Obama seemed to close the door on such investigations, he re-opened them again by giving the green light to AG Eric Holder. As soon as that happened, I thought to myself that Pitt would finally chime in now that it was "safe" to do so. I was not wrong as you can see in his THREAD, "Who should be going to jail for torture?" So let us now watch Pied Piper Pitt "bravely" crawl out of his Bukowski's hole in the wall in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, wondering if the Pittster has a reference letter from Dennis Kucinich whom he betrayed, is in the [brackets]:

Who should be going to jail for torture?

[Let me guess. ONLY Republicans and NO Democrats such as Nancy Pelosi who was fully apprised of water boarding now ridiculously redefined as "torture."]

My list:


[Yoo, Pitt. Yes, Yoo. Yoo tortured us mercilessly with your ENDLESS PARTIAL BIRTH NON-APOLOGY over Fitzmas. Yoo should go to jail. Yoo, not Karl Rove who, as we all know thanx to your incredible journalistic scoop, was indicted on May 12, 2006.]

Bush (if it can be proven that he actually made any decisions, which is dubious imho)

[What's laughable here is that this list conspicuously leaves out the name of Karl Rove even though many other DUmmies are accusing him of "torture." The name of Karl Rove brings back painful memories to you, eh, Pitt?]

I'm leaving off the CIA interrogators for the time being, not because I think they should get a walk for breaking the law, but because any prosecution of them would be DOA. Legally, they were following what they construed to be lawfully executed orders from their superiors. Yes, "I was only following orders" is the bullshit Nuremberg defense, but in a US court of law, it's enough to sustain the inevitable motion to dismiss from the defense.

[The author of the Fitzmas Fraud delivers a sermon on morality.]

So I don't think we can get those guys even if we want to.

[Can we "get" Jason Leopold's co-conspirator?]

Who can we get? Who should we get? Who gave the orders to and crafted the defense for torture?

[Karl Rove. He gave the orders on May 12, 2006. I'll have more details for you in just 24 business hours. And now to the DUmmie peanut gallery...]

Haynes. He was a major player who set this in motion at the Pentagram. He was the one that started trolling for torture techniques and who made the overture to the SERE people. And Richard Meyers who lied his ass off at the Taguba hearings. In fact, all of those people who lied at those hearings should go to jail, including Feith, Gambone and Addington.

[Speaking of lying, how about if we indict the crack journalistic team of Leopold & Lib?]

Rice doesn't get a pass. She approved waterboarding

[And overfeeding the Gitmo terrorists with Rice pilaf.]

The senior command is DEFINITELY culpable, without a shadow of a reasonable doubt.

[Not a doubt about it. As absolutely certain as the indictment of Karl Rove on May 12, 2006.]

People who tortured other people with their hands need to go to jail. I don't care whose approval or okay they thought they had.

[OK, this is completely OT but I have a complaint I need to make to Head DUmmie Skinner. I have just noticed that the DUmmieland format has changed slightly. I now need to copy the first sentence of a posting and then the rest of it again separately. Before I could do it all with one quick sweeping highlight motion of my mouse. The result is that it takes me a bit more time to copy and paste DUmmieland posts. Therefore I am asking Head DUmmie Skinner to please go back to the old format to enable speedier DUFUing. Thanx in advance for your cooperation.]

anyone who defends it on national tv..i dont know what the charge would be but its got to be illegal

[Is breaking fake news scoops also illegal?]

Powell, Armitage, Feith, Wolfowitz, Cambone (the one who set up the systems in all prisons), and Miller. Don't forget Addington, Rove and Libby.

[As noted above, Pitt has conveniently forgotten Rove and please DON'T remind him about Rove again. EVER!!!]

Hell, I'm adding Al Dershowitz because he was the first to publicly discuss torture as a viable option, something to banally discuss on my dinnertime TV, along with taxes and the weather. I will never forget that, Al, NEVER.

[Leave the "b" off of "banally" and you will definitely have the attention of Ben Burch.]

Why Does It Matter If Bush Actually "Made" The Decisons???? He was the boss. He wasn't "supposed" to be clueless about what was going on. Yes, he may have been clueless, but ultimately, he was responsible for the actions of his underlings and would have had ultimate sign off on these decisions.

That was a joke. He's on the list.

[Chuckled Pitt the Witt.]

Dick Cheney and Karl Rove are on the very top of my list because I think they were mainly responsible for hatching and then setting in motion the execution of the crimes of the past eight years. If they can be nailed with the torture crimes, I think it will be enough to bring in the rest of those who were complicit, even GWB. Instead of starting from the bottom and then trying to snare those on the top, I think we should start at the top and then maybe many of those who were only following orders can be identified.

[Karl Rove is definitely NOT at the top of Pitt's list. The very name brings back painful memories that last for a full 24 business hours.]

Your list is a good start. Add Rove.

[Pitt prefers to drop Rove from both his list and his memory bank.]

"All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than the others." He-who-must-not-be-named

How profound.

Who are you? Moses?

And it is the crooked path that leads to the mountain top. Yes, now I get it.

How 'bout this? He who acts a mule is at least half-assed. Think about THAT, mister.

What about Democrat House and Senate members who knew, and approved this... Are they equally to blame?

How about in the nineties? Rendition teams authorized by President Clinton? I'm sure no one was waterboarded then.

I was quoting from "Animal Farm," the book by Eric Blair (ndp George Orwell) in response to previous anonymous poster who said DU was starting to smell like Animal Farm.

Apparently the 5:40 Anonymous was confused by the references to Newspeak and "Nineteen Eighty-Four" (also written by Eric Blair) that CL posted. I would contend CL's references (Nineteen Eighty-Four) are closer to what is happening now than Animal Farm is.

From the wikipedia summary of the book:

During a long and complex dialogue, O'Brien reveals, in what is the most important line in the book, that the motivation of the Inner Party is not to achieve a future paradise but to retain power, which has become an end in itself. He outlines a terrifying vision of how they will change society and people in order to achieve this, including the abolition of the family, the orgasm, and the sex instinct, with the ultimate goal of eliminating anything that may come between one's love of Big Brother and Ingsoc. It will be a society that grows more, not less merciless as it refines itself, and a society without art, literature, or science, so that there are no distractions from their devotion to the Party, or any unorthodox thought, which is also meant to be achieved through the eventual eradication of Modern English, or "Oldspeak".(The "Inner Party" is BOTH Democrats and Republicans these days.)

When it comes down to it too many people are guilty of doublethink: namely they believe socialistic egalitarianism is a good thing and work toward achieving it, while at the same time realizing that egalitarianism cannot be achieved except via totalitarian methods.
