That's all bullshit.
Torture of any kind is the kind of crap terrorists would do.
WE are not terrorists.
Not to mention torture did not yield any good information, and through out history torture has never yielded good information.
I find the whole concept of this enemy combatant thing with people being held in Cube for over 5 years now without any type of formal charges to be quite rotten.
WE should be better then that
That's your traitorous opinion.

The risk one runs in any war, is the need to become as ruthless as your enemy. No country in history does more to protect innocent civilians than the USA. We risk our own people to do it, which makes military mothers very nervous.

We are at war. I knew people that died on 9/11. One was from my high school, another was a good friend of mine's father. He has an empty casket here in Huntington, because he worked for Cantor Fitzgerald, was trapped by the fire, and perished in the rubble.

Gitmo is a legal compromise. They are not PoWs under the Geneva Convention. We could shoot them as spies if we wanted to because they don't follow the rules of war. If we bring them to America, they get ACLU lawyers and Constitutional protections meant only for Americans.

It's a shame barock, the failed lawyer, didn't explain that to you idiots while he was hypocritically lambasting Bush and promising to close the place.

You have appoint about reliable information. That's why it's only done by people with Psy Op experience, and not by enlisted boots.

Torture is a shitty thing to do.

What happens in Gitmo cannot happen here on American soil, so it is wrong.
sorry about your friends, but that does not give you or anyone the right to hold peole without charging them.
I am not proud of what happens in Gitmo.
It is a disgrace. Of course it is all tied up in a beaurocratic shit storm that eve na good lawyer could muddle through, and it will stay for many more years and always be a stain on the land of the free.

Democratic Congressman Goes On Fox News and Destroys Their Benghazi Hysteria

Rep. Xavier Becerra (D-CA) showed up on Fox News, and destroyed the conspiracy spreading by dropping a fact bomb on the Republican Party and right-wing network’s Benghazi hysteria.

Rep. Gowdy was lying. He knows where the president was, and what he was doing during the Benghazi attacks. He knows this, because then Defense Secretary Leon Panetta testified in front of the Senate Armed Services Committee that he was meeting with Obama when they first learned of the assault and that Obama told him to deploy forces as soon as possible.

http://www.politicususa.com/2014/05/11/democr...

hahahahahahaha...so gowdy, the lastest conservative(cough) extremist, with the hopes of rightwing radicals on his shoulders, is proven a liar before their latest stalinist stunt hearing even begins.

LAMO.

Really? torture is a shitty thing to do? You get the simpleton award for that one. The biggest problem is no one believes our govt. at this point. Some have said intelligence was gained, others not.

The first words out of Khalid sheik mohammed's mouth was, I want a lawyer. He was in for a rude surprise. He didn't talk until we dripped a few drams of H2O on the back of his throat with an MD in the next room, monitoring his vital signs.

Sending an ambassador into an ambush, with no back-up, leaving him there to die, and blaming it on a video is more shitty.

You mean like the liberals have done with Sandy Hook before the end of the day it happened, and others. Hypocrites as usual. Your street creds are zero turnip.
