GORDON DUFF: CAUGHT IN THE ACT, TORTURE, MURDER AND RAPE AUTHORIZED BY BUSH ADMINISTRATION
RAPE, TORTURE AND MURDER, BUSH POLICIES TO MAKE AMERICA “SAFE”
AN INDICTMENT OF DR. AAFIA’S ABUSERS
By Gordon Duff STAFF WRITER/Senior Editor
There were things Americans didn’t know at the time. We didn’t know that the “memos” that Bush was referring to when he said “legal methods” were an absurd attempt to justify war crimes, documents that have now shamed America in the eyes of the world. We also suspected some of the abuses went well beyond “waterboarding,” one of the most severe forms of physical torture imaginable.
We weren’t told that innocent people were being kidnapped and sold to the CIA to boost “terrorist arrest” numbers. In fact, our entire war on terror was turning out to be nothing but hot air. For every real plot found, 20 turned out to be either our own informants planning attacks or totally invented. However, innocent people, in numbers we will never really know, were kidnapped, imprisoned and tortured for years, in secret prisons around the world.
We never accounted for how many we arrested or how many died. We also never accounted for the methods used, methods that, in fact, duplicated the methods of the Gestapo and SS during WW2. In fact, there is no method of torture, dating back to the Spanish Inquisition, that we can categorically prove we didn’t use. The methods were countless, physically brutal and often fatal. When most of the prisoners were kidnap victims, many who were turned over to us for “private reasons” other than terrorism, there has been no accountability at all.
Secret prisons are, in fact, death camps, concentration camps as much as Dachau or Auschwitz. Our guards and interrogators are no different than those who went on trial in Nuremberg. There is proof, a wealth of it, that this is true and none that it is not. In fact, nobody has ever been able to find how many camps we have operated, how many have been detained or “rendited,” think of that word, “rendition.” If a woman in your family is kidnapped and raped do you call it “rendition?”
MAKING AMERICA “SAFE” THROUGH INHUMANITY, INJUSTICE AND CRIMINAL ACTS
Back in the 1960s, it was proven that, under the right circumstances, anyone could become a brutal torturer. Well know university experiments showed how willing one student was to electrocute another if simply told to. America didn’t need to convince anyone to kidnap innocent civilians, not when we went out of our way to hire criminals to work for us, professional killers, thieves and social outcasts from around the world.
We actually train war criminals from other countries at a place we used to call The School of the Americas. Dozens of graduates of this institution have been cited for human rights abuses, murder, running death squads, killing and raping nuns and genocide. Hiring criminals to do our dirty work was a major national policy during the Cold War. Ask any Iranian, they can explain it.
WHY DOES THE CIA ALWAYS TURN TO GANGSTERS?
When America needed intel on WMD’s in Iraq, we turned to people nobody trusted, including ourselves. We “bought” lies that backed up what we wanted to believe. We didn’t want truth. Truth is unhandy, it would have warned us about the civil war we would have started, it would have told us that no weapons existed and that we were in bed with Iraqi gangsters. Whenever we shop for intelligence sources, we almost always turn to criminal elements, bank fraudsters, drug dealers or others with private grudges.
The information we get is always the same. We are fed lies that we want to hear because we only PAY for information that backs up what we want to hear. We always want to hear that that some kind of “operation,” be it a bombing, an invasion or kidnapping and murder are needed to keep America safe. If there is no problem, no war, there are no promotions, no medals, no fat contractor jobs, no oilfield takeovers, no paying lobbyists, no defense contracts and, most of all, nothing to serve the Israeli agenda. You ask what that is? How would you like to get billions of dollars free and not have to do anything for it. No wars to fight, America does it for you, all you have to do is bulldoze a few thousand homes, blow up some schools and bring in hundreds of thousands of “guest workers” from the Philippines, Thailand and Indonesia to do the work, “making the desert bloom” for you, all without ever having to leave an air-conditioned office or coffee shop.
Whenever America is looking for terrorists, we ask gangsters to help us find them. What do we get? We end up buying people that gangsters don’t like. Thus, America’s idea of a terrorist suspect is simple.
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A TERRORIST SUSPECT AND A TERRORIST VICTIM NO LONGER EXISTS
The more innocent a “terrorist suspect” the more we torture them. Isn’t it obvious? Anyone with real information on terrorism will tell it all within 48 hours. Others either invent it, making our CIA and other intelligence agencies look like the total idiots they are, or are quietly released.
WHY DO WE LOVE REAL TERRORISTS?
Though the CIA will keep a house wife or cab driver locked up for years, real terrorists make friends with their captors easily. They all promise to work for us and are quietly released. The Al Qaeda leaders in Yemen, Afghanistan and elsewhere have all been in Gitmo. If you are thinking of going to Yemen to join a terrorist organization, be prepared to be taking orders from someone that America thinks is a “confidential informant,” someone being paid by the Mossad and CIA. Yes, they still blow things up, but just to maintain their “cover.” Think about this, how stupid it is. Pretty soon, every terrorist in the world will be working for the CIA and Mossad as “confidential informants,” all blowing up schools in Pakistan or markets in Baghdad, all just to maintain their credibility with other terrorists. Are we that stupid? Of course we are and always have been.
WHY DO “CHRISTIAN ZIONISTS” LOVE TORTURE AND RAPE?
A Christian Zionist is an Evangelical Christian who also believes in religious heresies about Israel, the apocalypse and rapture, a person who wishes the death of all humanity, someone who prays for nuclear war and the death of all life on earth. This is a sociopathic belief system based on severe psycho-sexual disorders leading to masochistic tendencies that manifest themselves in supporting sexual abuse, torture and manifestations of severe delusion.
The Bush administration was led by a number of these individuals including President Bush, John Ashcroft, Alberto Gonzales, Tom Delay, Dennis Hasbert, Donald Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney, Paul Wolfowitz and Condi Rice. There is a reason you never saw any of these people talking to the public in an open forum. They sound like total nutcases!
Poll after poll showed tremendous support among Evangelical Christians for use of “harsh interrogation methods.” When it became obvious that we were murdering innocent people and engaging in torture and sexual abuses, all things totally unacceptable to conventional Christians beliefs, support by Evangelical Christians actually increased, or so we were told by our press. We have two choices here, either to believe that Evangelical Christians are evil or that our press has been lying about this community for some reason. I can’t imagine any Christian, Zionist, Evangelical or otherwise, unless they were dangerously mentally ill, supporting torture, illegal imprisonment or the murder of children, things we now know happened, now proven, now accepted as common place, even bragged about openly.
THE DR. AAFIA SCANDAL
This is what has been reported to us involving the treatment of Dr. Aafia, perhaps the world’s best known “prisoner of conscience.” This information has been seen by nearly every Muslim on the planet already and has not originated from an enemy of the United States but rather from people who want better relations between Islam and America. I met with supporters of Dr. Aafia in Pakistan and they make up some of the most respected members of that society, people who have had decades of friendship with American leaders, both military and civilian. Dr. Aafia’s supporters make up some of the most decorated soldiers in the world, soldiers with a long history of allegiance to the United States. What is written, to the best of my knowledge, is true. I wish, more than anything, that it weren’t:
March 30th 2010
- forcefully stripped by six men and then repeatedly sexually abused
- beaten with rifle butts until she bled
- bound to a bed, with her hands and feet tied whilst unspecified forms of torture were administered to the soles of her feet and head
- injected with unknown substances
- dragged by her hair
- having her hairs pulled out one by one
- forced to walk on the Qu’ran which had been desecrated in her cell whilst naked
