Boehner posts terrifying video with 9/11 images, implied support of torture

By David Edwards and Stephen Webster
House Minority Leader John Boehner has posted an alarming new video on his YouTube page that includes images of the Pentagon burning on Sept. 11, 2009, and implications that the Congressman, or those who created the video, support torture techniques used on terror war prisoners during the Bush administration.

“I’m trying to push the administration to describe what their overarching strategy is,” Boehner told Politico.

A telephone call to Rep. Boehner’s press secretary seeking further comment went un-returned at time of this writing.

In 2003, Bush made it clear that, at least when it came to Saddam Hussein’s government, “war crimes will be prosecuted, war criminals will be punished, and it will be no defense to say, ‘I was just following orders.’”

When shocking photos of detainee abuse at Abu Ghraib came out in early 2004, Bush told an Arabic TV station, “We will find the truth, we will fully investigate, the world will see the investigation, and justice will be served.”

At 100 days in office, 73 percent of Americans viewed President Barack Obama favorably — a rating higher than Presidents Bill Clinton or George W. Bush ever received. President Obama received higher ratings from Americans on his handling of foreign policy over his treatment of domestic affairs.
