Good guys do not sadistically torture people.
Good guys do not threaten to sexually abuse the family members of their prisoners, and they certainly do not forcibly ram things up the rear ends of those in their custody.
One of the greatest dangers that our country is facing is the fact that we are not passing on what it means to be "American" to future generations. Once upon a time, Americans were the good guys.
But now, instead of fighting the Nazis we are behaving just like them.
The details of the Senate torture report that was just released are almost too horrifying to talk about. We must talk about them though, because we are losing our soul as a nation. So please be warned - this article is going to be quite graphic. The reason for this is so that we can all take a long, hard, honest look at what we have become.
After everything that has happened, top politicians from both political parties are still standing up and defending those that conducted and authorized this torture. The rest of the world is watching this, and the number of people that are absolutely convinced that America is pure evil is growing by the day.
By not loudly condemning this torture and bringing the perpetrators to justice, we add fuel to the fire of those that hate this country, and we make it more likely that Americans will be targets of violence all over the planet.
There are very few people that are more outspoken about the evil of Islamic terrorism than I am. But there is no way that we will ever defeat Islamic terrorists by becoming just like them.
When I was growing up, I was taught that Americans never torture their prisoners.
That was something that,
...did. We were the "good guys", and so I was taught that we always treated our prisoners humanely. Oh how things have changed.
The following is a summary of some of the details from the Senate torture report that just came out.
As a nation, we should be deeply, deeply ashamed of what our government has been doing…
And of course this report only focused on a small portion of the prisoner abuse that has been going on all over the world for more than a decade.
Once again, I want to warn you that the material in this next section is quite graphic. But Americans need to be faced with the horrific truth. That is the only way that things will ever change.
The sadistic behavior of American personnel at the Abu Ghraib Confinement Facility in 2003 is almost too horrible for words. The following are highlights from an official U.S. Army report about the events that took place at that prison that you can find at nbcnews.com.
Are these the kinds of things that "good guys" would do?…
Have you seen enough yet?
But perhaps even more disturbing is the way that the rest of the country is responding to these revelations.
Sadly, the truth is that this torture report will be "news" for about 48 hours and then it will disappear from the news cycle. And Barack Obama sounds like he has absolutely no intention of ever holding anyone accountable for what happened.
The following is an excerpt from a statement that 'he' just made regarding this terror report…
The "greatest force for freedom and human dignity"? He has got to be kidding us...
When our politicians make statements such as this, they make the world a more dangerous place for Americans.
Right now, there are hundreds of millions of people around the planet that truly believe that the United States is the most wicked nation on the globe. And when we sadistically torture our prisoners, we give them a reason to feel that way.
Therefore they feel justified when they commit heinous acts of terror against us.
If we do not want the rest of the world to compare us to Nazi Germany, we have got to quit behaving like Nazi Germany. And of course the torture of prisoners is just one area where this is true.
For many more, please see article entitled "25 Signs That America Is Rapidly Becoming More Like Nazi Germany".
Please share this article with as many people as you can. I know that some of the material in this piece is quite graphic, but we have got to wake the American people up while we still have time.
Our nation is coming apart at the seams, and we desperately need a change in direction.
