Ghoul Bill Signed

Just in time for Halloween.

Bush Signs Law on Terror Suspects
WASHINGTON - President Bush on Tuesday signed legislation authorizing tough interrogation of terror suspects and smoothing the way for trials before military commissions, calling it a "vital tool" in a time of war.

Bush's plan for treatment of the terror suspects became law just six weeks after he acknowledged that the CIA had been secretly interrogating suspected terrorists overseas and pressed Congress to quickly give authority to try them in military commissions.

"With the bill I'm about to sign, the men our intelligence officials believe orchestrated the murder of nearly 3,000 innocent people will face justice," Bush said.
Rah, rah, rah.

Oh, did you know? America tortures. Your civil liberties are gone. Have a nice day.

Update: This part made me puke.
Bush signed the bill in the White House East Room, at a table with a sign positioned on the front that said "Protecting America." He said he signed it in memory of the victims of the Sept. 11 attacks.

I can't wait for the photo. The perfect example of an oxymoron.

More Update: And here it is.

I can't begin to describe how much this picture infuriates me. The defiant, "I'm signing the fuck outta this bill!" look on his face is just perfect.
