It's my POW and I'll torture if I want to!!!

It's football season, so forgive me for using a Skins analogy. But, watching this administration is liking watching the Redskins in their first year of Joe Gibbs encore where he showed a penchant for running the exact same plays that won him three superbowls in the eighties and nineties over and over again, but with a 21st Century result that was not as favorable. If you walked out your door, you could hear countless beltway pigskin fanatics scream "run another play", "mix it up a little bit", "try something else". That's no disrespect to Joe Gibbs, because in an example of true leadership, Coach Gibbs realized that not only had the world drastically changed, but defenses had changed. Joe in seasons to follow gave up the reigns of playing calling and gave the task to someone who was more in tune with landscape of today's defenses. If only his neighbor from Pennsylvania Avenue, could make a similar call. See if I hear the President run the Give Fear a chance play one more time, then I will surely go crazy. There has to be another play in the playbook.

War in Iraq? Give Fear a Chance on silent count! Break. [Hands clap as they leave the huddle]

Wire tapping? Give Fear a Chance on two! Break. [Cheney and Rumsfield's knod as hands clap in agreement]

Abu Ghraib? Give Fear a Chance on one! Break. [Rice and Rumsfield pound fist as hand clap leaving the huddle]

Guantanmo Bay? Give Fear a Chance....... I think you get the point.

Now we see the fearless Mr. President on the lawn of the White House in crossroads of history stating that the Geneva Convention's Common Article 3 is "vague" and "open to interpretation."

Can you guess what play will be run when questioned as to WHY these long standing rules of morality all of a sudden need to be changed?

I'll take give fear a chance for $200! Great guess.

"Were it not for this program, our intelligence community believes that al Qaeda and its allies would have succeeded in launching another attack against the American homeland," Bush said

"My job and the job of the people here in Washington, D.C., is to protect this country," Bush said. "This enemy has struck us and they want to strike us again, and we'll give our folks the tools to protect this country. That's our job."

Just to paraphrase the use of fear on this particular play. If you don't give me my law then the terrorist will strike again, so out of fear the American people should side with me and get Congress to change excuse me clarify article 3 of the Geneva Convention again out of fear.

That's it! That's his entire explanation. This has worked twice now and if you don't use we will be attacked.

" Excuse me Mr. President, countless experts and senior leaders of the GOP have gone on record stating that torture does not work!!"

To side with them is to side with the Terrorist are president said. I heard pundits on talk shows state that these people must want the terrorist to win. Huh?!?

At what point will we as Americans force this administration and it's mouthpieces formely known as the media to at least choose another play. Although, I must admit it is difficult to stop, since if another attack does occur the President will quickly blame anyone that opposed his actions. Think 200 lb. chubby kid up the middle in the predominately 85lb and under pee wee league. And just like in Pee Wee league, its going to take the entire team to bring this kid from Texas down.

See Colin Powell and John McCain and other leaders have to fight the fear of FEAR and face this debate head on.

Play callers beware.
