Qaeda-Iraq Link U.S. Cited Is Tied to Coercion Claim - New York Times

And this is probably why Cheney is so adamant about wanting to be able to use torture. He knows the war is based on falsehoods, with many of them extracted under torture. Now that it's falling apart, the only way he can obtain more "confessions" ,get more diabolical plans that will (hopefully) make him look like he was right to go to war, is by torturing more of these "plots" out of more people. I'm reminded of how the Church tortured confessions out of people often "particular people who held property that a local Duke or cleric wanted. They would torture until they got the right confession neccessary to expropriate the property they needed but couldn't get through any other legal means.

Indeed it is the complete opposite. To join this army....under this man....is to betray America. And any military man who knows this --- who knows Bush lied and yet still signs up for this war, well.....they have no respect, and they should not be accorded any whatsoever. None.
