Rice Approved Torture: She MUST Resign!
Secretary of State Rice is here shown repeatedly denying that the U.S. tortures, but Congressional investigations have shown that she knew and approved of the CIA using such techniques as waterboarding (the drowning torture), sleep deprivation, stressed positions, slappings, sexual humiliations, religious humiliations, etc. This woman, who has so dishonored the nation and may be guilty of CRIMES, is still regularly put forward in many circles as a possible VP running mate for Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), the GOP nominee for U.S. President! That's right: John McCain, who claims to be against torture, but voted against a bill that would specifically prevent the CIA from using any interrogation techniques not authorized in the U.S. Army Field Manual (derived from standards of U.S. and international law) and who cheered when Bush vetoed said bill, is now considering running with Ms. Pro-Torture--presumably because she is black, female, and well-liked by the Rightwing GOP Base.
Rice's involvement is documented at the following links: ABC News; The NY Times; Empty Wheel. Sign the petition calling for Rice's resignation and urging all three presidential candidates to do the same. It's time we begin holding people accountable! We impeached one president for a consensual (if adulterous) sexual act--but this administration commits repeated high crimes and misdemeanors and gets away with it. No amount of flag lapel pin wearing can cover that over.
