Texas-style Torturing Crusaders
BUZZFLASH READER CONTRIBUTION
I'm wondering how those Texas prisoners -- er -- "detainees" way back in 1996 could have been a threat to our troops in Iraq?
Could it be that then-Texas Governor George Bush's prison guards were possibly under orders from the same "contractors" as those assigned to Iraq to "coach" our week-end warriors on their special guard detail?
And would those busloads of "detainees" that just now being released from Abu Ghraib still be in there if it hadn't been for those recently banned digital cameras? ....
Next time you get a chance, hand deliver a copy of the following petition to your favorite place of worship or just ask your pastor to circulate it amongst their congregation. Also consider e-mailing or faxing it to other spiritual leaders in your area and specifically request them to ask their congregation to sign it. Don't forget to ask for a response to your request (will they or won't they, and when can you ask for it back to send it on), and let them know that your local media may well want to report which local religious leaders are outraged by Bush's policy of torture and abuse of war prisoners, and which just don't care.
