The General speaksThe liberal satire blog "Jesus' General" makes a blunt statement about the passage of the Torture Legalization Act.
The Jesus' General blog 09/29/06
I'm disappointed, though not especially surprised, that the corporate media are softpedaling the passage of this bill by both Houses of Congress. The two over-the-fold stories on the front page of the San Francisco Chronicle, for instance, were "HPs tough day in Congress" and "2 Christian films get the attention of Hollywood".
But I've read enough about this bill that I'm confident in my judgment of how seriously bad it is. The word "disgraceful" keeps coming to mind, because that's exactly what this bill is.
David Neiwert and Glenn Greenwald have been two excellent sources for analysis of the Torture Legalization bill and the politics surrounding it.
