Mere conjecture on your part along with a lack of knowledge on the subject. I can make anyone say anything, I can obtain much more and reliable info by being respectful and courteous, a proven fact. You are wasting time trying to cast blame away from the two culprits that screwed up every thing. Excuse maker.

Might I suggest that you find a subject you are more familiar with as it is way beyond obvious that you are clueless about torture. All you losers from the right have only one purpose in life and that is belittling Obama. PERIOD. You totally ignore the two orangutans that screwed up everything and we are still paying for their incompetence. They were handed the best presidency ever, and immediately began dismantling. While Obama was handed the very worst presidency ever, and the Republicans have maintained from day one their only goal was to unseat and be against everything at the expense of the American people. Plain and simple to all but the blind.

Claims that the torture of detainees was directly responsible for the intelligence that tracked down Osama bin Laden are fanciful at best and cynically manipulative at worst.

Leave aside for a moment the moral repugnance of torturing people, the thousands of innocents who were detained and mistreated alongside the likes of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, and the clear evidence that brutal behaviour on this scale is more effective as a recruiting sergeant for extremism than anything else.

Even with these fairly significant exceptions, it is still clear that the line peddled by George W Bush apologists (such as this Republican congressman)– that what this episode teaches us is that waterboarding works – is as wrong-headed as it is naive.

First, no credible link even seems to have been presented between the torture of detainees and the information leading to Bin Laden. In fact, insiders from both the Bush and Barack Obama administrations are saying the opposite.

Donald Rumsfeld himself had this to say on Monday: "It is true that some information that came from normal interrogation approaches at Guantánamo did lead to information that was beneficial in this instance. But it was not harsh treatment and it was not waterboarding."

there is no proof that torture gained us any real intel of any sort.

According to the GSS

"The General Social Survey (GSS) is one of NORC’s flagship surveys and our longest running project. The GSS started in 1972 and completed its 28th round in 2010. For the last third of a century the GSS has been monitoring social change and the growing complexity of American society. The GSS is the largest project funded by the Sociology Program of the National Science Foundation. Except for the U.S. Census, the GSS is the most frequently analyzed source of information in the social sciences. "
http://www3.norc.org/GSS+Website/About+GSS/

they surveyed 1598 people in 1991 and 1998...
and found that "a higher percentage of Democrats than Republicans say it is acceptable to cheat with respect to taxes and government benefits."

The people and each state are to decide whether their First Amendment rights should be denied - not undermined by courts and state legislators under the guise of progressive secular liberalism.
No one has been denied their basic civil rights. Redefining marriage and abortion are social issues that go against what many believe for religious reasons and/or personal convictions.
So you, like sonic, would prefer the people becoming subjects of the state? Do you have any understanding of the unintended consequences of this?
Once again we're not talking about 1st Amendment rights. You have the right to practice whatever faith you choose and believe what you wish but it does not allow you to impose your beliefs on others by denying them equal rights under the law or discriminate against them in the marketplace.
Marriage has already evolved from being a system of virtual slavery where wives were property to where they are equal partners. Marriage is a civil contract that grants both rights and advantages as well as responsibilities. To deny certain citizens of these because of a religious bias violates the 14Th Amendment. The Supreme Court in Loving v Virginia ruled that marriage is a fundamental right under the Constitution. You don't get to decide what rights a person gets based either on religious or personal grounds.
FYI, the majority of the Justices who upheld a woman's right to choose were appointed by Republican presidents.
We're all subject to the laws of the state Carol and to the Constitution.
How did you ever graduate from college with such sloppy reasoning and logic?

Domestic Political Fights On Ukraine and Russia Aren’t Entirely Pointless

.....The party out of power always has strong political incentives to attack the current administration and to use international events as a club with which to beat the sitting president, and it becomes even more tempting to do that when the president is in his second term and suffering from poor approval ratings. Indeed, if the party out of power weren’t doing some of this, it would be failing in its basic responsibility to hold the party currently in power accountable.

This isn’t something that has started very recently. Republican politicians and pundits have been railing against almost every Obama foreign policy decision from the start. That is fairly normal, and if done intelligently it could even be valuable. Unfortunately, most of them have also been more than happy to use any number of unfounded and false claims in that effort, so there is really nothing new in the latest wave of ridiculous accusations and complaints. The problem, then, is not that partisans are taking advantage of foreign events to criticize and attack administration actions (or lack thereof). After all, we should expect the opposition party to challenge how a president conducts foreign policy, and we shouldn’t want opposition politicians to avoid making legitimate criticisms for the sake of bipartisanship or out of a misguided belief that Americans should defer to the executive in the name of national unity. We have seen how brief moments of national unity and excessive deference to the president can land the U.S. in a great deal of trouble, and we should not want to encourage those habits no matter which party happens to be in power.

The problem at present is that the partisan critics are just recycling the same bogus charges that they have tried to sell to the public for the last five years to no avail, and because of that it is much easier for the administration to dismiss partisan its critics when they make such poor arguments and have so little credibility on these issues. What we need is an opposition party that makes smarter, better-informed arguments that do something other than repeat cliches and carp about “weakness,” and that could in turn lead to better policy decisions now or in the future, but that isn’t what we have.

Louisiana Public School Finds Out It Can't Force Christianity On Students

The complaint also alleged that the school hung pictures of Jesus from its walls, ran Bible verses across its digital message board and held prayers before many school events.

The consent decree issued Friday sought to address many of the allegations made by C.C. and his family, though the school district never admitted to any wrongdoing. Prayer at school events is now prohibited. School officials are not allowed to formally organize religious events. Teachers and other employees are prohibited from promoting religious beliefs in an official capacity.

The school district is instructed to notify all employees of the order, create a process for complaints to be addressed, and set up a training session to educate employees on the new policies. The court maintains jurisdiction to ensure the order is carried out. After 10 years, either party is permitted to ask the court to review whether the order need be continued.

CIA admits waterboarding yielded vital information

Leon Panetta, the CIA director, has confirmed that controversial "enhanced interrogation techniques" such as waterboarding yielded some of the intelligence information that ultimately led to Osama bin Laden.
