as with anything, context is important. There are somewhat subtle differences
U.S. servicemen subjected to waterboarding were not held by the enemy.
U.S. servicemen subjected to waterboarding were only subjected to it for a very short duration and just once, so that they would know what to expect.
Being held in captivity by your enemy makes a big difference, something you probably don't have the mental capacity to understand. You have no control. In training exercises, besides knowing your captors personally, and knowing you are all on the same side, you also know you will only be waterboarded for a short time.
as opposed to being waterboarded by people hostile to you for an unknown amount of time.
waterboarding is torture. we are suppose to be above that. I don't care how the enemy conducts itself. we can't control that. what we can do is behave in accordance with our beliefs, our morals and our ethics. sorry if you are too chickens*%$ to behave like an American.
go read the Constitution, does the phrase no cruel and unusual punishment ring a bell.
Why don't you go study American History and see how we treated Axis POW's.
or how we tried and convicted Japanese officers/NCO's for waterboarding (torturing) American POW's.
How we treat our prisoners is a true reflection of our society of how we hold our beliefs
Would you rather be water boarded or blown to smithereens without a trial by an illegal drone strike? Be the first liberal and Oblamer apologist to show a spine.

Al- Qaeda chief warns attacks on US in 'everyone's reach'

AFP - Al-Qaeda's military chief in Yemen warned Americans in an audio message posted online Sunday that the Boston bombings revealed a fragile security as he urged Muslims to defend their religion.

Qassim al-Rimi, the military chief of Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, said making bombs such as the ones used in the twin blasts in Boston in April, is within "everyone's reach".

"The Boston events... and the poisoned letters (sent to the White House), regardless of who is behind them, show that your security is no longer under control, and that attacks on you have taken off and cannot be stopped," he said, in the message entitled: "A letter to the American people."

"Every day you will be hit by the unexpected and your leaders will not be able to defend you," warned the man whose organisation is considered by Washington the world's most dangerous Al-Qaeda branch.

Rimi said the killing of Al-Qaeda's founder Osama bin Laden in May 2011 and top Yemeni-American cleric Anwar al-Awlaki in September 2011, had not ended the struggle.

"Have you eliminated the jihadist groups that have spread everywhere after they had only been in Afghanistan? Today, they are in your land or close to it," he warned.

To the Muslims in the United States, he said: "We encourage you to carry on with this way, be steadfast in your religion.

"Carry out your obligations, defend your religion and follow in the footsteps of those who supported their religion and Ummah (Muslim nation) while they are in their enemy's den," he said.

Eric Holder's Long History Of Lying To Congress

This is good news! I'm a Police Officer in Kentucky and am glad to see our Sheriff's Association on the list. Although there are may patriotic amerians in this state and officers who swear to uphold the constitution, it would be GREAT to see these Associations and pro constitution groups meet with our smaller communities to insure their support and to boost the moral of the people in these communities.

I swear by my oath and America patriotism to uphold the constitution and all amendments within it to the best of my ability.

Sheriff's can "deputize" ALL the help they need ...
Patriots will do it for FREE!

Really hard to believe sometimes.
A president deliberately lies about a terrorist attack on 9/11 before an election leaving four Americans dead with a presidential hopeful, Secretary of State, as his accomplice.
And the left looks the other way.
A president is suspected of using the IRS to target a significant segment of the population who helped the opposition take back the House in 2010 and sets the climate for others to defy the constitution in the name of party loyalty/power.
And the left looks the other way.
A president stands by his Attorney General who broke the law confiscating journalists' private emails and phone calls without due process or just cause.
And the left looks the other way.
A Republican president would have been ripped to shreds by the liberal media on any of these issues - one was already forced to resign.
But the left looks the other way.
Is it possible we've already become Cuba and the left is part of the coup in overthrowing the constitution and individual civil liberties?
The left on here would have no problem with that.
All you do is repeat the same crap Carol despite the fact that each of your points has been shot down on numerous occasions. You don't even try to argue a new angle. No Carol we're not looking the other way, we're looking at these things through the lens of fact and logic while you and your ilk are looking through the distorting lens of irrational hatred.

Every administration is guilty of targeting certain individuals and big organizations - and Clinton held the record.
Clinton and Reagan also fired the same number of U.S. attorneys as Bush.
Congressional Democrats were not denied the same Intel Bush, the UN and worldwide intelligence agencies had. They hoped you were stupid enough to believe it.
If Bush or Romney had been embroiled in this many very sesious scandals - you'd be the first demanding their impeachment or resignation.
For one thing Carol, Clinton didn't "fire" any federal attorneys. Their terms were expired and they simply weren't renewed. This happened at the beginning of Clinton's term. Bushes wholesale canning of his prosecutors took place well into his term and they were let go because they were sent on a wild goose chase to find massive voter fraud and they didn't find any.
And no Carol, congress did not get the same intelligence that the White House had. A prime example was the infamous aluminum tubes that the Bush administration claimed as proof of Saddam's nuclear program. Congress did not get the dissenting views of nuclear scientists that they were in fact the wrong size and configuration for that purpose and were later determined to be for artillery rockets.

She maid the statement, "All vets are mentally ill and government should prevent them from owning firearms". if she denied the stoopid statement she would make she would piss of liberal turds like you. fientstien is much like you, if she is not slurring and demeaning the military she is not happy other than the fact that it was a conservative who reported it. Keep it up, all understand that is your mantra.

I posted a link top a fact check site that said Feinstein never said it.

All you have is a right whiner columnist writing an opinion piece.

Where did she say it? To whom was she speaking?

Why do all the sites refer back to that opinion piece?

Feinstein never said it.

I realize that to a lowlife scumbag liar like you, that makes no difference.

Report: How GOP lost young voters

Titled the “Grand Old Party for a Brand New Generation,” the report is sharply critical of the GOP on several fronts. The study slams some Republicans’ almost singular focus on downsizing Big Government and cutting taxes; candidates’ use of offensive, polarizing rhetoric; and the party’s belly-flop efforts at messaging and outreach, even as the report presents a way forward and, at times, strikes an optimistic tone.

In the report, the young Republican activists acknowledge their party has suffered significant damage in recent years. A sampling of the critique on:

Gay marriage:“On the ‘open-minded’ issue …[w]e will face serious difficulty so long as the issue of gay marriage remains on the table.”

Hispanics:“Latino voters … tend to think the GOP couldn’t care less about them.”

Perception of the party’s economic stance:“We’ve become the party that will pat you on your back when you make it, but won’t offer you a hand to help you get there.”

Big reason for the image problem: The “outrageous statements made by errant Republican voices.”

Words that up-for-grabs voters associate with the GOP:“The responses were brutal: closed-minded, racist, rigid, old-fashioned.”

“[The] Republican Party has won the youth vote before and can absolutely win it again,” the report says, pointing to presidents Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush who were competitive with that demographic.“But this will not occur without significant work to repair the damage done to the Republican brand among this age group over the last decade.”

Zimmerman has physical damage to prove his case.
Of course, he could've pounded his own head on the sidewalk and smashed his own nose to manufacture evidence, right azzhole?
The sidewalk was in the grassy area between the buildings.

I guess people should not be concerned when they are being followed late a t night by someone in a vehicle. And they should care less when that vehicle stops & a man gets out to pursue you.

Nope. No Concern whatsoever.

When Trayvon approached Zimmerman, Zimmerman should have said "neighborhood watch".

This is not murder but Zimmerman's series of mistakes ended up with Trayvon dead. Dead from walking back from the store.
