Waterboarding ban by US Obama administration

This is a video about the United States Bush’s administration’s torture policy; especially about waterboarding.

From Reuters:

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder ruled out the use of “waterboarding” as an interrogation technique for terrorism suspects on Monday, calling it a form of torture that the Obama administration could never condone.

Waterboarding is torture … My Justice Department will not justify it, will not rationalize it and will not condone it,” Holder, who his heading a review of the treatment of terrorism suspects, said in a speech to the Jewish Council of Public Affairs in Washington.

Sarah Palin’s racist supporters

This video from the USA says about itself:

Palin supporter displays racist Obama Monkey and flaunts it outside of Palin rally in Johnstown, Pennsylvania. October 11, 2008.

From WGY in the USA, with video there:

Palin Supporter Brings Monkey Doll

A Sarah Palin supporter brings a plausibly racist monkey doll wearing an Obama sticker to a campaign rally.

Monday, October 13, 2008

As the crowd cheered at a Sarah Palin rally this morning in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, a man in the audience grinned as he held up a stuffed monkey doll with a Barack Obama bumper sticker wrapped across its forehead.

Is the ‘Obama Monkey’ racist? is a question asked in a poll on the WGY site. Some people have voted ‘No'; probably people who think that the Ku Klux Klan and Adolf Hitler are not racist either.

The McCain-Palin presidential election campaign has already included smearing Obama by guilt by association as a “terrorist”, and supporters, not corrected by Ms Palin, calling for killing Obama.

Palin even more pro war with Russia than Bush

This comic video from the USA is called Sarah Palin Exposed.

From British daily The Guardian:

A hawkish and occasionally combative Sarah Palin warned last night she might commit US troops to a war against Russia in defence of Georgia and Ukraine in her first interview since John McCain chose her as his running mate.

Ms Palin, very many people in Georgia and Ukraine themselves do not like the militarist, not really `defensive`, policies of their heads of state. And war with Russia might very probably mean nuclear war, with millions of American, Russian, Georgian, Ukrainian etc. etc, dead civilians.

Palin, who admitted last night she made her first trip outside North America last year, also said she was certain she was ready to step in for McCain as president, if the Republican nominee were to be incapacitated. She said repeatedly she would not hesitate to use all options in an international crisis or resort to force against Islamist extremists. …

Palin‘s interview was carefully stage-managed to counter criticism that she lacks foreign policy experience and to deflect media scrutiny of her personal life. But her occasionally stilted answers and uncompromising view of the world could sit uneasily with American voters, weary of the war on Iraq and the deteriorating situation in Afghanistan.

In sometimes tense exchanges, Palin demonstrated a more bellicose posture towards Russia than the Bush administration during the conflict with Georgia. She also supported military action against Islamist extremists in Pakistan even without the support of the Islamabad government.

So, under President Palin, even more bombs on Pakistani civilians who are not “Islamist extremists ” than is already happening now under Bush
