Torture White House

White House hiding Gonzales memos

Al Gonzales: performs with dogs, tortures with dogs. On Thursday, confirmation hearings to make this double-threat our next Attorney General will begin in the Senate, and SURPRISE! The White House isn't handing over memorandums penned by the special counsel regarding torture at places like Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib. See the Chicago Sun-Times for more.

I'll give them the benefit of the doubt on this one. They're not turning over these documents clearly because they're humble and modest ol' so-and-sos. The memos are obviously empassioned texts dripping with humanitarian pleas to military and FBI officials to treat prisoners with love, caring, and respect.

Seriously, would they really prevent the Senate from seeing documents that shed a positive light on Gonzales?

Senators would do well to grill and question and show pictures of prisoners awash in shit when the hearings get underway. Of course, no dogs or electrodes or "stress positions" will be used. Not even a torturer is deserving of that brand of interrogation.
