Pushing the Envelope on Presidential Power

Shortly after the first accused terrorists reached the U.S. naval prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, on Jan. 11, 2002, a delegation from CIA headquarters arrived in the Situation Room. The agency presented a delicate problem to White House counsel Alberto R. Gonzales, a man with next to no experience on the subject. Vice President Cheney’s lawyer, who had a great deal of experience, sat nearby.

The meeting marked “the first time that the issue of interrogations comes up” among top-ranking White House officials, recalled John C. Yoo, who represented the Justice Department. “The CIA guys said, ‘We’re going to have some real difficulties getting actionable intelligence from detainees'” if interrogators confined themselves to treatment allowed by the Geneva Conventions.

Cheney and his allies, according to more than two dozen current and former officials, pioneered a novel distinction between forbidden “torture” and permitted use of “cruel, inhuman or degrading” methods of questioning. They did not originate every idea to rewrite or reinterpret the law, but fresh accounts from participants show that they translated muscular theories, from Yoo and others, into the operational language of government.

A backlash beginning in 2004, after reports of abuse leaked out of Iraq’s Abu Ghraib prison and Guantanamo Bay, brought what appeared to be sharp reversals in courts and Congress — for Cheney’s claims of executive supremacy and for his unyielding defense of what he called “robust interrogation.”

What more proof does anyone need that this is not an American administration? This is a nightmare out of a bad horror flick. Where are the heroic teenagers from the 1950s who discover the Monster that adults do not believe exists? Americans today are as dumb as their ‘B’ movie counterparts. They look right at the monster and are hypnotized into believing the monster mantras. The movie ‘1984’ has us in it’s “Group Speak” and “Group Think” grip. Thinkers are outlaws. Lord Cheney, the evil ruler of America’s powers is out to change us from free thinkers to ‘group robots’. We are living in a ‘B’ Horror Movie! Feel Free to scream!
