Bush declares war on human rights

This past week, George W. Bush used his "war on terror" to escalate his war on human rights.

In the words of Amnesty International, "President Bush on national television defended cruel and humiliating treatment of detainees, asked Congress to support an illegal secret detention regime, and then proposed legislation that would legalize the sham military commission that the Supreme Court has repudiated."

In other words, Bush is trying to legalize lawlessness to suit his agenda.

The agenda is all that matters to him. Humanity doesn't matter.

This is not the America that our founding fathers fought for.
