The Government Is Breaking the Law By Failing to Prosecute Torture

President Ronald Reagan signed a treaty legally requiring the U.S. to prosecute everyone who authorizes torture.
Specifically, the Convention Against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (signed by the U.S. under Ronald Reagan) provides:

Article 2
1. Each State Party shall take effective legislative, administrative, judicial or other measures to prevent acts of torture in any territory under its jurisdiction.
2. No exceptional circumstances whatsoever, whether a state of war or a threat or war, internal political instability or any other public emergency, may be invoked as a justification of torture.
3. An order from a superior officer or a public authority may not be invoked as a justification of torture. . . .
Article 4
1. Each State Party shall ensure that all acts of torture are offences under its criminal law. The same shall apply to an attempt to commit torture and to an act by any person which constitutes complicity or participation in torture.
Article 7
1. The State Party in territory under whose jurisdiction a person alleged to have committed any offence referred to in article 4 is found, shall in the cases contemplated in article 5, if it does not extradite him, submit the case to its competent authorities for the purpose of prosecution.
Article 15
Each State Party shall ensure that any statement which is established to have been made as a result of torture shall not be invoked as evidence in any proceedings, except against a person accused of torture as evidence that the statement was made.

This is not some non-binding, touchy-feeley resolution … it is the law of the land.

    I think we seriously need an amendment to that heading as it infers the very opposite of what is meant!!

    Or: The Government Is Breaking the Law By Failing to Prosecute Those Who Sanction Torture”

    I suspect the all encompassing ‘not in the national interest’ will be used as the ultimate get out clause to stop prosecutions of high ranking individuals OR, those who actually carried out the torture will be the fall guys as if no such orders were ever issued, OR those orders were far exceeded.

    What is ‘torture’ anyway? It means different things to different people. Sticking someone in a windowless cell with the light on all the time and the ‘subject’ not knowing the time of day, day of the week or time of year is a torture of sorts.

    I certainly feel like I’m being tortured 24/7 by my own western commie ZOG bastards trying to Holohoax and White guilt trip me and make me feel ‘racist’ for loving my identity, culture, heritage and country as was, before the fugly ZOG creature came along.

    Having one’s finger nails pulled out, thumbs screwed, a red hot empty cartridge case put on one’s tongue to cool down, etc, etc seems like a walk in the park compared to what ZOG have done for decades/generations and are doing every day. God will revenge it.

    Just look at this NWO Cultural Marxist Frankfurt School crap:

    Games teacher admits having sex with pupil

    One would be forgiven for assuming that natural and normal sexual intercourse had taken place between a male and a female – but no:-

    “A games teacher has admitted having sex with a pupil she taught at an all girls private school.”
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-beds-bucks-herts-28691170

    Now, I can only guess at what mind-boggling/numbing activities these two degenerates (if they actually exist and this story is real) actually got up to – muff diving, firsting(sic), simulated male-on-female sex with strap-ons, have sex toys/will travel (batteries not included) – but it was most certainly NOT ‘having sex’! It may well have been engaging in sexual activity and even bring tears to one’s eyes at the thought of it – certainly the thought of the male on(sic) male variant – but it is NOT ‘having sex’ by its correct meaning, and I’m not having it any more! That’s the problem!
