We are the torturers, my friend

I, for one, certainly don't believe Bush in his insistence that the US does not engage in torture of prisoners. He's apparently already forgotten about Abu Ghraib and not too eager to bring up the gajillion other places, known or unknown, where we're holding prisoners. And the notion that the CIA has prisons all over the place--isn't that old news? I remember the Washington Post breaking the story a few years ago that the US has prisons around the world--Jordan, as well--in countries that don't have hangups with torturing prisoners.

And now the latest are questions surfacing on whether the US used chemical weapons on civilians in Fallujah. Check out the Christian Science Monitor's coverage and try to figure out for yourself. Can't say I'd be too surprised.
