Thom's blog - Friday November 12th 2010

You need to know this - Ever since George W. Bush admitted to authorizing the use of waterboarding – or torture - in his new book, “Decision Points” – there has been growing pressure on the Obama Administration to launch an investigation. Both Amnesty International and the ACLU have called for criminal prosecution of the former President. And now Congressman Jerry Nadler from New York is joining the cause claiming that, “a failure to order a criminal investigation would be a serious dereliction of duty.” Republicans also agree. GOP Congressman Jason Chaffetz from Utah said he would, “have no hesitation” in investigating the former President. So – Attorney General Holder – what are you waiting for?

But waterboarding isn't torture, every republican knows that. And to prove it, perhaps every republican should be waterboarded. Then renditioned to Syria.

From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"If you wonder why and when giant corporations got the power to reign supreme over us, here’s the story."
Jim Hightower, national radio commentator and author of Swim Against the Current
From Screwed:
"I think many of us recognize that for all but the wealthiest, life in America is getting increasingly hard. Screwed explores why, showing how this is no accidental process, but rather the product of conscious political choices, choices we can change with enough courage and commitment. Like all of Thom’s great work, it helps show us the way forward."
Paul Loeb, author of Soul of a Citizen and The Impossible Will Take a Little While
From Cracking the Code:
"In Cracking the Code, Thom Hartmann, America’s most popular, informed, and articulate progressive talk show host and political analyst, tells us what makes humans vulnerable to unscrupulous propagandists and what we can do about it. It is essential reading for all Americans who are fed up with right-wing extremists manipulating our minds and politics to promote agendas contrary to our core values and interests."
