So, Mr. McCain, you believe torture to be a crime when it is approved and performed by other governments, but when the US government is responsible for these atrociites, we should just shrug and ignore it?

You have lost the last strands of credibility you had left.

Sad.

Obama and the Democrats are already posining the U.S. politics and turning this great country into a banan republic.

BTW-only three high-value prisoners were waterboarded and they coughed off key information that led to the arrest of a West Coast terrorist cell that was ready to do a 9/11 in LA.

Obama is a political whore.

Why is it so hard to remember that we were at War with these people who wanted us to become as low as they were with regard to freedom choices.

I have repeatedly offered to undergo waterboarding if a liberal will agree to undergo a procedure which I will let him select from a menu of Muslim interrogation techniques.

Sounds fair to me, but I can't find a liberal to volunteer.

Las Vegas is headquarters for harassing Veterans of The United States and raping there daughter then have big law firms as "Lionel Sawyer and Collins" and "Mark Solomon", "Elizabeth Brickfield" and "Sam Lionel" a known hard core Zionist group are lawyers where a headquarter for race investigations to harass American Veterans who have been living in the US for over three hundred years. They do "interrogations" on minors and women in locked rooms inside that law firm.

It is an legal torture organization operating under the veil of lawyers who charge sex victims for the crimes on there bodies after they come close to death due to race.
