Will Grigg?s Liberty Minute

June 7, 2010

As St. Augustine observed, a government is a criminal gang that has given itself permission to murder, torture, and steal.

This fact was made vivid in a recent speech by former President George W. Bush in which he not only defended his unconstitutional decision to wage aggressive war on Iraq, but also publicly admitted that he had ordered his subordinates to commit the crime of torture, a felony that can be prosecuted as a capital offense.

?Yeah, we waterboarded Khalid Sheik Mohammed,? Bush told the Economic Club of Grand Rapids.

The use of controlled drowning against that high-ranking al-Qaeda operative was just one of the crimes authorized by Bush. The advocacy group Physicians for Human Rights reports that the Bush-era CIA violated numerous laws and conventions ? including the post-WWII Nuremberg Convention and the so-called b Common Rule on medical research ? by using detainees as experimental subjects to refine torture techniques.

How can any rational person believe that foreign terrorists pose a greater threat than the government ruling us?

Let us take back the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free.
