Letter to the Editor
US President Bush today admitted today that the United States used secret prisons run by the CIA to torture prisoners, and Bush said that he was going to keep on doing it. Although Bush says the the United States does not torture, he also has his own definition of torture and claims that the Geneva conventions are vague.
Torturing people is just plain wrong. It’s something that civilized people do not do. While Bush claims that America’s use of torture has saved innocent lives, in reality the opposite is true. It has caused America to be the object of scorn in the international community by our friends an enemies alike. It has led to our people being kidnapped, tortured, and beheaded and it is used by terrorists to recruit new terrorists as they point to our president as an example of a leader gone mad.
The bottom line is that Bush is doing more hard than good and he has to be stopped in order to prevent further damage. He is leading America down an evil path that threatens the security of the civilized world. Americans are good people and we ask that the world not judge us by our insane leader. We ask that the people of the world join us to help remove Bush from power. Bush isn’t just our problem. He is a danger to the planet and he must be stopped.
