Although I did have to make regular trips to the BaOC (basra operations center) and the PJCC (provential joint command center) downtown. I was also in charge of the closure of Camp Hutch in Shaiba
our compound on COB was across the street from the USO building/gym and just up the street from the main dining facility.

It was rather imperial on our part to invade with just cause. And it cost everyone in terms of lives and money, not to mention reputation. But this is another discussion.
AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
If you're not being waterboarded, don't worry about it. If you are you are probably a terrorist that wants to kill Americans. If it works to get vital info, great...no one dies from it.
During my 21 years on AD, at least 3 SERE trainees that I personally know of, including one in my class, DIED from waterboarding. This was in a TRAINING environment with EXTENSIVE safety protocols in place. Yet they DIED.
Oh, and that is a "military reenactment".
Also, a man was locked in Guantanamo bay for 6 years and he was completely innocent. He got water boarded weekly for all six years... (I'll dig up the story if you make me. I heard it on the radio though...)
-JryanI'm coming to see that no matter what law we regulate, be it the stand your ground act, there is never an objective morally right answer to any morale question; in fact, since there are multiple objectively right answers to every moral question that leaves us with a lot of grey area and a lot of black area (not in the racial since).
