"A veteran sergeant who told his commanding officers that he witnessed his colleagues torturing Iraqi detainees was strapped to a gurney and flown out of Iraq - even though there was nothing wrong with him...
Over the past few weeks, the number of different account of torture and abuse by the United States has been staggering. Here is a quick run-down of some of the most recent:
- The Pentagon warned intelligence specialists as recently as June not to report the abuse of Iraqi prisoners.
- FBI agents witnessed US soldiers abusing detainees at Guantanamo Bay as early 2002 but the Pentagon did little to investigate the complaints.
- New photographs emerge showing U.S. soldiers abusing Iraqi detainees as early as May 2003.
- The U.S. government argues it has the right to use evidence gained by torture in deciding whether to detain people at Guantanamo Bay.
- U.S. generals in Iraq were warned more than a month before the Abu Ghraib scandal emerged that detainees were being beaten and abused in Iraq."

"I know you think the fundamentalist triumph is complete. America is going to be just like The Handmaid's Tale now. The Bush Administration will take orders from Christian ayatollahs who command all-glass mega-churches in the suburbs of Denver and Houston. The president will be proclaimed a Protestant Pope, God's infallible messenger on Earth. Roe v. Wade will be overturned. The minimum wage will be lowered to $1 an hour, where it was in the 1950s, when everything was perfect. The FCC will order all radio stations to play Toby Keith, and Congress will so brazenly destroy the wall between church and state that the next federal budget will include $10 million for the 700 Club Pledge Drive.
Stop worrying. I am here to bring you hope. I am here to tell you that the cultural Cold War now wracking America will be won by the liberals, by the forces who want to take this country forward into the 21st century, not backward into the 12th..."
