Letter to the Editor
The Bush Administration is blaming the news media for violence by Muslims who are upset with news reports about the brutal torture of prisoners at American prison camps. They say these news reports are getting people killed. But it’s not the news reports that are getting people killed, it’s the news. The torture at Abu Ghraib really did happen. The Gonzales memo approving the torture really did happen. And the abuse at Gitmo as reported by Amnesty International really did happen. It’s not the job of the news media to cover up for the presidents war crimes. If the Bush administration wants to stop the news reports I suggest that he stop doing the things that the news media is reporting on.
