The day after the US admits to the UN that it has tortured prisoners, Bush makes a non-torture statement

Another evidence of how disconnected from reality Bush is.

Yesterday

Today:

On United Nations International Day in Support of Victims of Torture, the United States reaffirms its commitment to the worldwide elimination of torture. Freedom from torture is an inalienable human right, and we are committed to building a world where human rights are respected and protected by the rule of law.
    The United States is continuing to work to expand freedom and democracy throughout the world.  We will seek and support the growth of democratic movements and institutions in every nation and culture, and we will help others find their own voice, attain their own freedom, and make their own way. Throughout the world, there are many who have been seeking to have their voices heard, to stand up for their right to freedom, and to break the chains of tyranny. Too many of those courageous women and men are paying a terrible price for their brave acts of dissent. Many have been detained, arrested, thrown in prison, and subjected to torture by regimes that fail to understand that their habits of control will not serve them well in the long-term.America will not pretend that jailed dissidents prefer their chains, or that women welcome humiliation and servitude, or that any human being aspires to live at the mercy of bullies. All who live in tyranny and hopelessness can know: The United States will not ignore your oppression or excuse your oppressors. When you stand for your liberty, we will stand with you.

What about those in Gitmo Bay who are seeking to have their voices heard, have a fair hearing after charges formally made against them? And what's this about human beings not wanting to live at the mercy of bullies? The US has been regularly going around, with  C Rice at the helm, threatening and bullying countries or attempting to. The United States is ignoring oppression of some and excusing it. Or maybe the US is about to turn over a new leaf-but pretending to be taking the high road the day after admitting it is complicit in torture is deceptive.
