I want to be absolutely clear with our people, and the world: the United States does not torture. It’s against our laws, and it’s against our values. I have not authorized it, and I will not authorize It. — George W. Bush.
With this statement, once again we fell victim to the lies the Bush administration fabricated to keep the world in the dark. Only after graphic photographs from Abu Ghraib surfaced was it made clear that the Iraqi people were deliberately physically and mentally tortured.
The Bush Administration needs to be accountable for the pain, suffering and injustice they subjected innocent people to, as well as the lies told to
the citizens of the world. The hard reality is that even after looking at the photographs, most people still do not TRULY SEE the horror the Iraqis went through. They are victims without a face. For that reason, I have put a FACE to this injustice.
George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld need to realize they cannot lie any more…they are The FACES BEHIND TORTURE.
