Well we showed 'em... or maybe not

The NY Times reports that a conservative estimate of dead Iraqi civilians since the US invasion is at 100,000: "In 15 of the 33 communities visited, residents reported violent deaths in their families since the conflict started. They attributed many of those deaths to attacks by American-led forces, mostly airstrikes, and most of those killed were women and children. The risk of violent death was 58 times higher than before the war, the researchers reported."

And a UN Report says that the U.S. has no justification for using torture. You mean torture isn't a college prank or a family value?: ""The absolute nature of the prohibition of torture and other forms of ill treatment means that no exceptional circumstances whatsoever, whether a state of war or a threat of war, internal political instability or any other public emergency, may be invoked as a justification for torture," the report said." Bush was so proud during the debates that he didn't sign up for the ICC. I hope that he is charged for war crimes.

Or did we show them? This was on CNN last night with Aaron Brown. (you can try to watch it here)
BROWN: Let me ask you then, David, the question I asked Jamie. In regard to the dispute about whether that stuff was there when the Americans arrived, is it game, set, match? Is that part of the argument now over? KAY: Well, at least with regard to this one bunker and the film shows one seal, one bunker, one group of soldiers going through and there were others there that were sealed, with this one, I think it is game, set and match. There was HMX, RDX in there. The seal was broken and quite frankly to me the most frightening thing is not only is the seal broken and the lock broken but the soldiers left after opening it up. I mean to rephrase the so-called (UNINTELLIGIBLE) rule if you open an arms bunker, you own it. You have to provide security.
Does this mean that the Preznit will quit saying that Kerry doesn't have the facts about the missing 380 tons of dangerous explosives in Iraq. Perhaps Kerry did have the facts and bush didn't. bush: "This week Senator Kerry is again attacking the actions of our military in Iraq, with complete disregard for the facts."

You can see pictures here of the explosives. "....members of the 101st Airborne Division showed the 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS news crew bunker after bunker of material labelled "explosives." Usually it took just the snap of a bolt cutter to get into the bunkers and see the material identified by the 101st as detonation cords. "

Wow, 150 digital cameras were given to Iraqi's to show who they are. It was made into a movie. Boy, they'll show us.

Oh sure, the NAACP's tax exempt status is being investigated by the IRS for endorsing the preznit. Et tu, IRS? Is there anything that isn't political or racially motivated? What about the churches? Investigate the churches.
