We waterboarded 3 people, and liberals want to incarcerate the CIA agents they empowered to do it.

We should have apprehended and interrogated bin laden too, but barock would rather just clip him.

Very liberal.

I believe Waterboarding was not the exclusive method used in the "inhanced interrogation techniques". Otherwise the BUsh administration would have refered to their tactics as waterboarding, not enhanced interrogation tactics.
Basically nothing they did would have been suitable for use in the USA at any prison.
but these poor bastards ae different. they have not even been formally accused of a crime. Just rounded up and sent to Cuba as "enemy combatants"
But I'm sure if Obama used the same tactics the republicans would revel in Oama's mastery of foreign policy.and back him every step of the way....Like they do with the drone strikes.

We're at war.

Alan Dershowitz, a Harvard Professor, and actual attorney, argued that it's far more "humane" to employ some form of increased pressure on captured TERRORISTS and not PoWs, under the ticking time bomb scenario than to let the bomb go off and have a mass casualty event.

If we think there is some degree of probable cause we can employ increased degrees of physical, non-lethal pressure under the ticking time bomb scenario.

We waterboarded 3 people. That's it.

We should have captured and interrogated bin laden instead of just killing him imo. For a while I had hoped we had and lied about it, but it appears it's true.

Led by Darrell Issa, House Republicans Are Taking America Back to McCarthyism

For the past five years conservatives have openly expressed their greatest desire is to take the nation back to the 1950s they claim was a special period in American history because Black people knew their place, women were submissive, and Ozzie and Harriet most accurately represented the population.

Let's not forget the greasy canukian...still seeking full status as an American.....his mental health isuues keep holding up that canukian revocation.

The Christian men who lost their show for their religious beliefs understand that they are better off working with other people. The horror comes with knowing we live in a country where you cannot have a belief other then the one advocated by Barack Obama in His new America. The spying, the attempt at mind control is temporary, but it hurts to know our citizens fought for those freedoms, and died for them and the Democrats just threw them way.

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
