    Helped find OBL.



    Not even close to the same thing, but your disdain for our efforts in the GWOT are noted.
    It is my disdain for sitting silently by while our government supports a practice that violates basic human rights and dignity that should be noted.

    Is the damage done to the "war on terror" by torturing prisoners also noted?

    You mean gaining the information gleaned to find OBL?

    We disagree.
    Then why wasn't he prosecuted for blowing the whistle on water boarding?



    He should have been.
    The right loves the idea of prosecuting people for thought crimes

    Thinking that "the law" = "semantics" is a delusion

    I doubt that Dilawar had much useful information.

    So when Falwell gives his opinion to a reporter, he speaks for everyone at the University? They all agree with him? Wow, can I use that line of thinking with liberals as well?

    Then why wasn't he prosecuted for blowing the whistle on water boarding?
    Don't know...Ask the prosecutor, or better yet the "liberal judge" you felt compelled to point out....

    The right loves the idea of prosecuting people for thought crimes
    Fixed that for ya...

    Nothing
    Then why bring it up?

    Dilwar is also not the subject of the thread....Are you yet ready to discuss the person that IS the thread's subject? Or just continue to deflect?

    No, when the staff of the university states that they support him, they speak for themselves (Note the plural)


    Don't know...Ask the prosecutor, or better yet the "liberal judge" you felt compelled to point out....
    It is the prosecutor who chose to not file charges because it's not a crime.



    Fixed that for ya...
    Yeah, changing the facts is how righties "fix" things.



    Then why bring it up?
    because some people like facts., YMMV

    If you want to talk about Plame, then search one of the thousands of threads and educate yourself first....Then after that, reply to one of those....This thread is not about her.
