The world is beginning to doubt the moral basis of our fight against terrorism

September 14, 2006

So, Bush’s new plan to change our interpretation of the Geneva Conventions does not look to be too popular, even with those in his own party. He wants to allow tougher interrogation (read: torture) tactics and shield the U.S. personnel from being charged with war crimes. Boy, oh how I love him so. Bring on the torture, George!

But then today, something happened. Mr. Colin Powell didnt like Bush’s new plan and wanted to let everyone know. This is what he said:

The world is beginning to doubt the moral basis of our fight against terrorism,” said Powell, who served under Bush and is a former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. “To redefine Common Article 3 would add to those doubts. Furthermore, it would put our own troops at risk.”

Can you say, “wow”? I know he lied to us about the WMD in Iraq, but hey, its better late than never to step up to the plate!
