I've Got Your Clarity Right Here, Mr. Bush!

You Need Clarity, Mr. President? I've Got Your Clarity Right Here!

by Steve YoungSept. 20, 2006 -- Hollywood ( --

If Bush needs clarity to interpret the Geneva Conventions anti-torture provisions - and he really means it - the next visitor to the Oval Office should be Maher Arar (, a Canadian computer consultant who was labeled - wrongly - as a dangerous radical and "an Islamic extremist individual."

If Congress needs to hear what being held without due justice under CIA cover as it is now, the next person they need to interview is Maher Arar, who was taken by U.S. authorities and secretly rendered to Syria, where he was "...beaten, forced to confess to having trained in Afghanistan -- where he never has been -- and then kept in a coffin-size dungeon for 10 months," said a report focusing on Canadian intelligence.

If John McCain, Lindsay Graham, John Warner and Colin Powell need to confirm what they've believed all along about how wrong-headed and criminal the Bush Administration's desire to continue their definition of legal interrogation, the next persons they need to break bread with is Maher Arar and his wife - a university economist - who were placed on al-Qaeda "watchlist," without any justification.

If Hannity and O'Reilly truly want to inform their listeners and Fox News fans of what the president's "clarification" really asks for, then the next person they need to interview is Maher Arar, who will tell them that "an innocent Canadian was tortured, his life was put upside down, and it set him back years and years." That is if he can get that out before he is interrupted by a litany of talking points by the host.If the American public needs to find out what could happen to an innocent person, to them or to their loved ones under the justification of "KEEPING AMERICA SAFE ™, meet Maher Arar.

Sometimes there's a failure to communicate. Sometimes there's a failure of strategy. Sometimes there's a failure of men and government. Unless we shine the light on these failures and the brutality they generate, the lessons we can learn from them to make us a better people and better country will whither in the dark.

Before we let the Senate compromise their morality and principle, let's all shine the light on Maher Arar. We owe it to him. We owe it to us.

Dear Babs & George

Please come pick up your spoiled brat kid. We've had to put up with 6 yrs of his temper tantrums, lies and thievery and we just flatassed can't take any more. That snot nose little brat is wreaking havoc with everything he touches & he needs to get his ass out of Dodge.....errr....DC.

He is too damn lazy to read or ask questions, instead choosing to let that brain damaged ViceP of his tell him what to do. ViceP is aided and abetted by Dum Rummy, as you well know, & let's not forget the vindictive, Nazi, Karl Rove. Hell's Bells George, you fired that scumbag because he was so vile.

What kind of parents are you to allow your brat to make such a mess without a word of reprimand? If that little monster was my kid I would have been in DC right after 9-11 giving him a good ass kicking. For sure, there's no way in hell I would have stood by during the 5 yrs since then and let that monumental mountain of lies roll off his smirking lips unhindered. If you two had an ounce of decency in your greedy bodies, you would have helped remove him from office at least 4 1/2 years ago. Hell, you know that Jeb was the one who was supposed to run until the stupid one, along with this Nazi pal, Karl Rove decided that they should rule the world. Even then you could have prevented your drunken, coke sniffing son from stealing the presidency. Instead the entire family pitched in & helped install that nasty little brain fart in the Oval Office.

You raised your goofy son without an iota of humanity or appreciation for the value of a human life. As long as he doesn't physically do the murder and other dirty work, he thinks he's as pure as new fallen snow. Isn't it about time that you let him know that he is a traitor to this country, a war criminal and a disgrace to the human race?

And dear heavens, can you please tell Junior to ditch that phony Christianity. What the Sam Hill kind of church do you attend that condones so much lying, cheating, stealing, torturing and murdering? Good grief Babs, are you human?

Do you two free-loaders hate this country so much that you will leave this wacky kid of yours in charge for another two years after listening to the inane speeches his old war lords have him reciting? Don't you realize that your little boy thinks that no law applies to him? In his feeble mind he is king of the world. Haven't you noticed that the world hates the brat?

Aren't you the least bit ashamed of what you dumped on an unsuspecting world?

Now that little worm is threatening & blackmailing Congress to get them to pass laws, retroactively, non-the-less, to cover his criminal ass.

Look at what your frat boy did to Afghanistan and Iraq. This bloody mess has resulted in the killing, maiming or injuring thousands of our own soldiers, likewise for thousands of innocent men, women & children. It has left others living in conditions that are not fit for animal or man. Do you feel anything when you see the numbers?

Ah, that was a stupid question. You don't see the numbers because Junior has that hidden away from public view too. Judging by your past comments Babs, you probably think they are better off.

Take a look at Lebanon after that nasty little creep shipped Israel hundreds of tons of weaponry to blast that little country off the map. Think about the tiny children who will be killed, maimed or injured by the cluster bombs that he furnished & that still litter the dismal landscape. No sense of shame yet?

Speaking of children, how are we supposed to teach our children the difference between right and wrong when they get a daily dose of your corrupt son? When they hear Cheney continue to lie about WMD's in Iraq? When both still try to connect your old buddy Saddam to 9-11? AND when they see stories about the corruption and war profiteering by you, your son and that gang of old war lords around him?

How about that Bin Laden family? You're still cozying up to them, selling out our country for that rich bunch of thieves. By the way, where do you have Osama hidden?

The only thing that is on your son's brain is showing Poppy what a 'man' he is and how many more taxes can he eliminate for himself and all the rich SOB's who have supported you and your family for years. One would think that people who are stealing money by the millions wouldn't mind parting with a few bucks to help keep the country that has been so good to them running. BUT not you greed mongers. You'd rather see children starving in the street than to pry a few nickels from your greedy paws.

Well Babs and George, I have news for you. Your cowardly, scaredy-cat son is no man and never will be. He's no war president. Hell, he's not even a cowboy! He IS a totally incompetent fraud & a complete pansyass. On top of that he is a cold blooded murderer.

This country and this world has been so very kind to your entire family so it's about time that you returned the favor. That lying, blackmailing son of yours has to go. Please do the world a favor and help remove him from office before that fool decides to push that 'nukular' button. He is the terrorist that we have to fear most and that "we" includes you. Surely you have noticed his strange behavior lately. He can't remember which lie he has told from one day to the next. He's getting to be more like Cheney every day. He doesn't give a damn that the whole world knows he is lying and committing crimes.

He's drinking Babs. Is he also medicated? Zonked out on Prozac? We're not sure but the symptoms are all there.

So please drop what you're doing and come pick up that son of yours before he ties on the mother of all drunks and blows us to bits. Make Junior the happiest man alive and take him home to his pig farm. Tell him that he doesn't have to play president anymore. Do it for your country Babs & George! Do it for the 2,684 soldiers who have died for your son's lies!

You're not to be so blind with patriotism that you can't face reality. Wrong is wrong, no matter who does it or says it. Malcolm X (1925 - 1965)

I like to believe that people in the long run are going to do more to promote peace than our governments. Indeed, I think that people want peace so much that one of these days governments had better get out of the way and let them have it. Dwight D. Eisenhower (1890 - 1969)
