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.
