This Bush Crony Has Blood on His Hands!

BLOG: This Bush Crony Has Blood on His Hands!


THE INSIDE SCOOP on George W. Bush's Former Ambassador to Italy, Melvin Sembler, who ran a teen drug rehab center where thousands of American teens were physically and mentally abused in horrific, degrading ways.

Guest: Reporter John Gorenfeld Ambassador de Sade: Bush rewarded one of his loyalists with the ambassadorship to Italy -- despite his past as the founder of an cult-like teen rehab clinic.

Among our president's appointments of GOP activists to important posts, we've
done worse than Melvin Sembler, the Ambassador to Italy who couldn't speak
Italian. Unlike the FEMA chief, who had real responsibilities, Sembler sometimes
found himself a fifth wheel around his own embassy. As the Washington
Monthly has reported
, the scandal that claimed Scooter Libby's job
last month may have sprung from secret Rome meetings between neocons, an
Iran-Contra figure and an Italian intelligence boss who later pushed phony WMD
documents -- all behind Sembler's back.

But where Melvin Sembler, 74, demands attention is as an object lesson in how cruelty can be redeemed by the transformative power of political donations. For 16 years, Sembler, with his wife Betty, directed the leading juvenile rehab business in America, STRAIGHT, Inc., before seeing it dismantled by a breathtaking array of institutional abuse claims by mid-1993. Just one of many survivors is Samantha Monroe, now a travel agent in Pennsylvania, who told The Montel Williams show this year about overcoming beatings, rape by a counselor, forced hunger, and the confinement to a janitor's closet in "humble pants" -- which contained weeks of her own urine, feces and menstrual blood. During this "timeout," she gnawed her cheek and spat blood at her overseers. "I refused to let them take my mind," she says of the program. The abuse took years to overcome.
