tales of torture are lying lies told by the liars?

According to President Bush, the Amnesty International report on Guantanamo Bay is just a pack of lies, apparently, told by "disassemblers", according to this May 31 press release:

THE PRESIDENT: Terry.

Q Thank you, sir. Mr. President, recently, Amnesty International said you have established "a new gulag" of prisons around the world, beyond the reach of the law and decency. I'd like your reaction to that, and also your assessment of how it came to this, that that is a view not just held by extremists and anti-Americans, but by groups that have allied themselves with the United States government in the past -- and what the strategic impact is that in many places of the world, the United States these days, under your leadership, is no longer seen as the good guy.

THE PRESIDENT: I'm aware of the Amnesty International report, and it's absurd. It's an absurd allegation. The United States is a country that is -- promotes freedom around the world. When there's accusations made about certain actions by our people, they're fully investigated in a transparent way. It's just an absurd allegation.

In terms of the detainees, we've had thousands of people detained. We've investigated every single complaint against the detainees. It seemed like to me they based some of their decisions on the word of -- and the allegations -- by people who were held in detention, people who hate America, people that had been trained in some instances to disassemble -- that means not tell the truth. And so it was an absurd report. It just is. And, you know -- yes, sir.


I particularly find this figure astounding:

Total number of detainees held outside the USA by the US during “war on terror”: 70,000

Open your eyes. Actually read the report. Don't let the media tell you what to think.

Oh, and Mr. Bush?

dis·as·sem·ble (ds-smbl)
v. dis·as·sem·bled, dis·as·sem·bling, dis·as·sem·bles
v. tr.

To take apart: disassemble a toaster.

v. intr.

1. To come apart: The unit disassembles easily.
2. To break up in random fashion: The spectators began to disassemble.

And we take his word on these things?

Maybe he should try to get a refund on the tuition paid for his college 'education'. Assuming that the colleges don't don't know the reason why the education didn't take (substance abuse).
