Obama no longer finds rape sensational.

( – promoted by buhdydharma )

As I am sure many know here, President Obama has decided to become a rape enabler by covering up the war crimes committed over the last few years by suppressing evidence. As U.S. Major General Antonio Taguba, who lead the investigation into abuses, said:

“I am not sure what purpose their release would serve other than a legal one.”

Last I checked raping a small child and using the tears of their present mother for lube is pretty much a crime no matter what country you are in. I challenge anyone to name a nation-state on earth that allows for the use of a a truncheon to be forcefully inserted into any number of young innocent orifices.

With President Obama’s “level-headed” leadership, we have finally moved on to a realm of time when the raping of children is not even a legal concern, and hardly even hits the President’s outrage meter. After viewing photos of numerous rapes, foreign object insertions and sexual depravity, Obama had this to say:


Mr Obama seemed to reinforce that view by adding: “I want to emphasise that these photos that were requested in this case are not particularly sensational.”

See how easy that was?

Not only has Obama deemed the cramming of a fluorescent tube up that shattered anus of a small shepherd boy from outside of Mosul no longer a legal issue, Obama says it’s not even a moral issue. Not even sensational. No, in President Obama’s world, the gang raping of young Iraqi women is mundane at best.

And God Bless America for that.

Because a country that rapes together, stays together.

Let’s Hope Obama Never Changes, because then someone might actually get outraged.

    He has said that there will be no more torture, and presumably no more war crimes, under his administration, and prosecuting those who enable and committed war crimes like this would be torturing them, no?

    He’s a president now, and nothing is off the table… ahem.

  1. … snark and outrage aside (which is not easy to do), this shows the limitations of the tactic Obama is using to avoid speaking out on torture and prosecutions.  I understand his political situation, but this is too big for politics.

    He can’t stay out of it and he can’t get into it.  Not a pretty political position, imo.

    In a month or so the OPR report will come out.  And I think by the end of the summer we’ll see if Holder is going to prosecute, or what the hell the DOJ is planning when it comes to dealing with those at the highest levels of power who abused that power so enormously.

    I just don’t think Obama is going to be able to walk this tightrope from now until then.

    I also saw this same bizarre disconnect when Obama gave his foreign policy speech and was speaking about the possibility of preventive detention.  He simply couldn’t say the word “torture” when he was explaining why certain Gitmo prisoners couldn’t be tried in the normal way.  Evidence was “tainted.”  And how did that happen?

    The gaps are getting larger and larger, imo.

    Obama is turning out to be, in a way, far worse than Bush in that he has the charisma and the leadership skills to effectively cover this up.

    Bush was a transparent goon.

    I almost would rather have a transparent goon than a slick cover-up artist.

    With Bush we started to see the men behind the curtain.

    With Obama?  We don’t even see the curtain.  

  2. means what he thinks it means.

    Thanks pinche, this needed to be said, and no one does this kind of thing better than you.

  3. enough?  and if there is more filth to see, what good will it do?  The threshhold has been crossed.  Nothing good will come of viewing this.  

  4. long time no see, happy to see you writing here.

  5. to be fair your emphasis is on the wrong words. Obama parsed:

    “I want to emphasise that these photos that were requested in this case are not particularly sensational.”

    The ACLU requested in this case around 20+ photos. Gates decided to release all approximately 2,000 photos to have it done all at one time, rather than drip, drip.

    My guess — because obama simply does not have to lie — is that the particularly horrendous photos are NOT in the 20+ photos demanded by ACLU in this particular FOIA request.

    Rather, the truly horrendous photos are likely in the group of 1980 photos that were released but not part of the specific request this time by ACLU in this case.

  7. for something so sick, perverse and heinous.  

    I cannot find it, but I recall a saying, not verbatim, but something like this:  When a nation ceases to revere children, then that signifies an underlying illness in its very foundation.  I think you get the idea.  Sorry, I can’t find the exact expression.

    IMHO, you would think that the torture and rape of mere children (some as young as 10 years of age) would not only outrage the world community, but would spur this country on to quickly do the right thing.  What does it take to be sufficient to do that, what???????

    was thinking about you with the mess over at the big orange last week, remembering the last nyc meetup i attended and spent most of it keeping you company while smoking a butt.  hope you quit by now and hope your writing and your fishing are going well.  

  8. Not only has Obama deemed the cramming of a fluorescent tube up that shattered anus of a small shepherd boy from outside of Mosul no longer a legal issue,

    The British article did not mention a fluorescent tube like the ones in most workplace ceiling fixtures, but a phosphorescent tube, meaning one of those plastic snap-and-shake chemical lights.

    I’m not condoning anything, I just want to avoid starting any inaccuracies about an already horrific story.

  9. your essay is god to read. Hard to understand why people think that they can avoid dealing with the reality of what is and was being done. Photo’s are debated but not the deeds committed. The distractions argument along with it’s harmful to the troops and politically not good is appalling. It’s how the freakin Nazis got away with it. The outrage seems directed to the people who would dare to put our troops and the mission from hell in danger, and ruin heath care, how stupid and ass backward is that. Nothing justifies what we are doing it’s a crime against humanity. Don’t ask don’t tell just let us get on with our mission. Like the Arab’s haven’t noticed what is being done to them and their children. Hope you post more here I miss your writing, both political and ‘art’.
