The absurdity of Condi Rice’s claims about torture flights

Why does the U.S. burn all that jet fuel flying detainees around the world from prison to prison? Are they being given sightseeing tours? Are they being sent tourist class with complimentary snacks and beverages? Why the maintenance of so many secret prisons? Why not just have a central prison for detainees of the so-called "War on Terror" in the U.S. and operate it like any other prison?

What possible reason would there be to fly these passengers around the "Unfriendly Skies" if not to degrade them, disorient them, abuse them, beat them, tie their bodies into knots, dehydrate them, and then to do it some more? Why send detainees to other countries for interrogation if the other countries do not use torture, either? Can’t detainees just be warehoused in one central location, even if it is a maximum-security facility? Why are they sent around the world if one interrogator is the same as another and if torture, degrading treatment and violence is not used against them?

Moreover, is Condi Rice stupid, or does she think everyone else is? We know without equivocation that Condi Rice is a blatant liar, but she is even worse, because her lies tend to be so absurd that they insult as well as deceive.

How could we get Condi Rice, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Alberto Gonzales and George W. Bush to actually tell the truth. Maybe they should be detained and flown around the world on these flights until they tell the public what the public needs to know.

The conservatives made a huge fuss over the lies of Bill Clinton regarding his sexual dalliances with the Polish Princess, Monica Lewinski. When Bill Clinton lied, no one got beaten and his own humiliation was about the extent of the human degradation involved. Dick Cheney, Condi Rice, Don Rumsfeld, and their boss and the rest of the crew have shed so much blood, inflicted so much pain, perpetuated so much injustice, fomented so many crimes against humans and humanity, that Bill Clinton is almost a saint by comparison. Clinton made love and not war. The vile Bush Administration loves to make war and then to lie, torture, and lie again.

And the media still can’t come to grips with the enormity of the situation.
