    Yeah, I'm on the road right now but was listening to POTUS on satellite radio, both of them were HUGELY critical of Bush's torture program, McCain even said, when you torture people, they just tell you what you want to hear so you'll stop. And he added, any small amount of solid info we got wasn't worth violating the Geneva Convention and loosing global credibility as we did!!

    Not in the least. Your justification of Bush's plans for war with Iraq while he was yet governor was apparent.

    That's it?

    A link to hearsay posted on one of the most vile Progressive Websites on the internet? Dang, talk about misrepresentation of facts. Ridiculous.

    If he even said that, which is fine if he did. He said that if he got the chance, he would get rid of Saddam, something wrong there? So you think, given the chance, he should have left him in power?

    G.W. Bush didn't blame anyone. He's from the private sector where the rule is, when there's a problem, fix it don't look for someone to blame instead.
    You forgot the rest of the rule, which is "and don't ever accept the blame for anything even when it is painfully obvious that it's your fault, no matter how many people were harmed or killed because of what you did."

    There was no torture program until the left decided that waterboarding fell under torture. McCain's a great patriot as a soldier, and idiot in Congress. Terrorist are specifically excluded from the Geneva Convention, so another one down the drain there.

    I never heard of that rule before until Obama became POTUS.

    Yes, strictly speaking, that is hearsay...but then there's the documented fact that ten days after Dubya took his first Oath of Office - over seven months before 9/11 - he held his very first cabinet meeting. And what was the subject of that cabinet meeting? The invasion of Iraq.

    Hmmm...maybe you don't detect - or, more likely, refuse to detect - the stench of last week's fish in the claim that Dubya didn't want to finish what Daddy left undone.

    Do you really think that we Americans are immune to military adventurism, especially given that we have a preponderance of the military might in this world?

    He also talked about being a "war president" before 9/11....just waiting for the chance to find some excuse to attack Iraq. 9/11 was the perfect opportunity for GWB, Cheney, Rumsfield, and the rest of that neo-con administration, to pursue their decades old dream of attacking Iraq (incidentally, they couldn't convince HW Bush to do it....he was a little too smart for their ploys...had to wait for the figurehead to get into office).
