TOMGRAM—AMERICAN TORTURE: PRETENSIONS ASIDE, BUSINESS AS USUAL // BY NOAM CHOMSKY

MURDER, TORTURE, ABUSE…and photos of the same. We’ve seen some of them, of course. Now, evidently under pressure from his top generals, President Obama has decided to fight the release of other grim photos from the dark side of the Bush years of offshore injustice — on the grounds that their publication might inflame opinion in the Middle East and our various war zones (as if fighting to suppress their publication won’t). In this way, just as the president is in the process of making Bush’s wars his own, so he seems to be making much of the nightmare legacy of those years of crime, torture, and cover-up his, too.

  1. Morals are actually created by reviewing incidents from the past… that is why Obama says, “forget the past; just look to the future”.

    Of course, the manufactured history that is presented to the people is often a joke…as was the ‘official story’ of 9/11.

    As is the case with all lies; other lies are needed to bolster the original. That is where torture plays a big part. With torture the inquisitioner can extract from a suspect (victim) admittance to any mamufactured ‘truth’ desired.

  2. Professor Chomsky said: “Historical amnesia is a dangerous phenomenon, not only because it undermines moral and intellectual integrity, but also because it lays the groundwork for crimes that still lie ahead.”

    Now think for a moment of the tens of thousands of nuclear weapons, some on a hair trigger alert status, waiting to be used upon humanity with only a few moments notice.

    It seems clear that Our nuclear war fighting elite suffer from a dangerous assortment of mental health issues that would keep a pistol out of any other persons hands due to their demonstrated desire to kill as many humans as they possibly can. Are we doing the right thing to sit back and do nothing about this? Think about it; tens of thousands of nuclear weapons at the ready to exterminate the human race.

    Where are the mental health professionals on this issue?

  3. apparently Cyrano’s Journal is yet another ‘liberal’ site that supports the absurd official story of 9/11, allowing whores like Chumpsky to perpetuate the root 9/11 lies within articles exposing crimes flowing from U$ sponsored 9/11…

    not only does Chumpsky ridicule anyone who questions the official story of 9/11 but he also supports the official story of JFK’s assassination, believing Oswald shot Kennedy and there was no conspiracy…

    both O-bomb-a and Chomsky are Elite-controlled stooges…
