There are no longer torture chambers or rape rooms or mass graves in Iraq
George W. Bush, April 30, 2004

"PRESIDENT BUSH: A year ago, I did give the speech from the carrier, saying that we had achieved an important objective, that we'd accomplished a mission, which was the removal of Saddam Hussein. And as a result, there are no longer torture chambers or rape rooms or mass graves in Iraq. As a result, a friend of terror has been removed, and now sits in a jail. I also said on that carrier that day that there was still difficult work ahead."

3. He said it twice this week
"there are no longer torture chambers"

He first said it in the Saturday radio speech.
Drudge even ranted about it last Sunday. And he used it AGAIN on Tuesday!
Well, you can say one thing for his stupidity. It's consistent.

4. They will say the torture chambers are gone
Edited on Thu May-06-04 06:31 PM by higher class
that this prison under our military and contractors was a 'torment' chamber and that there is a big difference between torture and torment. Just listen for it - DeLay & Rush are already saying that - it's in their tortured logic defenses.

--snip
My opponent admits that Saddam Hussein was a threat -- he just didn't support my decision to remove Saddam from power. (Laughter.) Maybe he was hoping Saddam would lose the next Iraqi election. (Laughter.) We showed the dictator and a watching world that America means what it says. (Applause.) Because our coalition acted, Saddam's torture chambers are closed. Because we acted, Iraq's weapons programs are ended forever. Because we acted, nations like Libya got the message and have voluntarily disarmed. (Applause.) Because we acted, an example of democracy is rising at the very heart of the Middle East. Because we acted, the world is more free, and America is more secure. (Applause.)
