What? Tired already of exploiting your own terror victims? Well, leave ours alone, you creep

If Bush imagines that by supporting torture he is speaking on behalf of the victims of the 7/7 bombings, he could educate himself a little by reading what they have to say on the matter.

If he wants to pretend to military experience he never had in order to win elections, that's OK. If he wants to exploit the deaths of American servicemen as a result of his lies, well, he's the President. If he wants to throw away the US Constitution then I'm glad I'm not an American, but he's the one they voted in. If he wants to pretend the USA holds the moral high ground worldwide, or anywhere except in his imagination, he has the right. But if he wants to use British murder victims to try to justify his regime's systematic abuse of human rights. he may find we don't buy it.

Rachel (7/7 survivor and so very much more) has given her succinct opinion of another American neocon: in this case one who has famously used American murder victims to advance his political career.
