Op-Ed Columnist - The Banality of Bush White House Evil - NYTimes.com: Five
years after the Abu Ghraib revelations,
we must acknowledge that our government
methodically authorized torture and lied
about it. But we also must contemplate the
possibility that it did so not just out
of a sincere, if criminally misguided,
desire to “protect” us but also to promote
an unnecessary and catastrophic war.
Instead of saving us from “another 9/11,”
torture was a tool in the campaign to
falsify and exploit 9/11 so that fearful
Americans would be bamboozled into a
mission that had nothing to do with
Al Qaeda. The lying about Iraq remains
the original sin from which flows much
of the Bush White House’s illegality.
Who am i, what am i
A picture's worth
I stand on the sand, and I'm rocking grief to sleep in my arms.
