I’ve posted this over at dkos, and I call upon all ‘Dharmites who oppose torture to assist me with this please…just even copying and pasting my letter and sending it on…I’m beyond words…
I need any Kossacks opposing torture to contact the editor of the Toronto Sun immediately demanding an explanation for this garbage I just read, enttitled:
“Torture? Sounds like a swimmingly good idea”
The contact information is as follows:
The editorial page editor is here:
I’ve posted a copy of my Letter to the Editor below the fold:
Here’s a disgusting taste of the article:
So now that we’ve established that the detainees in question aren’t even protected by the Geneva convention, and that they often have crucial information that can save lives, what about the idea of waterboarding as “torture”?
When asked about it during a recent CNN appearance, I suggested that “one man’s torture is another’s CIA-sponsored swim lesson.” In case anyone thought I was being facetious — I wasn’t.
The copy of my letter:
I would just like to confirm that the Toronto Sun has indeed published this article by Rachel Marsden endorsing the use of torture on “terrorist suspects, entitled Torture? Sounds Like a Swimmingly Good Idea
In the wake of the Mahar Arar affair, I felt the need to give the Sun a chance to explain its rationale for publishing such a toxic and shameful opinion article endorsing the torture of human beings.
At the end of the day, I shall be forwarding this article and your response or lack thereof to international blogs and bloggers, and will also be looking into violations of Canadian broadcasting standards.
This is a shameful thing to come across in a Canadian publication. I am beyond words to describe further my outrage over this article.
I assure you that this matter shall not be dropped, smug reply notwithstanding.
Thank you for your time.
A shocked and dismayed Canadian
I would respectfully request any Kossack who opposes torture to send a copy or their own wording, echoing the sentiments of my letter to the editor.
I would also request any Kossack reading this to send a link for this Diary to anyone they know opposes torture.
I though we got rid of this psychopath when she moved to New York, but even Foxnews doesn’t want this idiot in their studios.
Please, I beg you, Kossacks. I need help with this.
I’ll repeat, my ‘Dhamite friends…any help would be most appreciated…
