Bush And Others To Be Investigated By Senate For Torture

February 26, 2009

US (ChattahBox) – According to a report released by RAW, the Senate has launched an investigation into possible administration abuses under Bush’s government, that led to the prolonged torture of prisoners and detainees during his Presidency.

Bush has not actually been shy in recent months about admitting that torture was used freely during interrogation, and the knowledge has led to years of damaged International relations, a horrible reputation, and sacrificed values. But the Senate is now saying that he won’t be allowed to get away with it, despite his past confidence of immunity.

“We have this American government, which has an architecture and a shape and a system that drives it and constrains it and that keeps it honest, and what happened is that the Bush administration figured out a lot of ways to tunnel through the walls and sneak over the fences.” Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) told reporters.

“So now we need to go back and say, ‘We have got to plant those walls deeper so you can not tunnel under them.’ We’ve got to spotlight how they did it… The ultimate goal in this is to protect and enhance American democracy.”

While President Obama has stated that he is less interested in investigations himself, and more interested in dealing with the current crisis facing the country, most are certain that he will support the idea of a Senate committee to look into the allegations (and admissions) of torture, that plagued the past administration.

“Stay on this,” Whitehouse confided. “This is going to be big.”
