    Thanks. I think I'll skip this one. It's a little too politically motivated to be completely truthful, and because they never bothered to talk to the people involved, it's useless except as a political tool, and a poor one, at that.

    If I recall correctly, the U.S. under Presidents Clinton and Bush chose not to submit the Rome Statute to the Senate for confirmation on grounds that it potentially undermined national sovereignty. Another argument concerned the ICC's accountability to the highly-politicized UN General Assembly rather than the UN Security Council.

    Of course, you're right. Our system was not set to serve the People and to be controlled by it through intelligent interaction and voting. Clearly it's for the politicians, by the politicians, of the politicians. I don't even know why people are interested in government action and desire at all. Obviously it will regulate itself.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Gotta love the perspective of your "freedom" loving Conservatives on this report.
    The perspective of conservatives on this report is that is completely unreliable due to it's polical bias.

    The efficacy of interrogation is beyond question. I guess in liberal moonbatville, suspects never give up information under duress.

    are you that far behind in thinking that the CIA and our people wouldn't move.
    Based off the article I just linked the facility has been closed at least since 2011... So who would move if no one is there at that site?

    Or use old locations they once held.
    The center of Kabul airport?

    Yet are still in Kabul.
    Cool. Kabul is a big place.

    What you can't figure out the CIA and the Afghans have other locations they are working out of that area and are suspected?
    Since a site was closed then released its code name, and nickname, and its location. It was actually released in 2011 as I linked. Whats the big whoop?

    You wouldn't think at all about how validation of where a location was given. Would lead to some searching around.....huh.
    Well this site was released in 2011 and its at the center of a airport which is essentially a giant military base...
    But do you really think the Taliban dont know there are CIA black sites in Afghanistan and Kabul?


    I'll bet you thought AQ and the Taliban gave up looking. Didn't you?
    No. Just saying that the place was revealed in 2011 and was closed. Going back to my original question which was: "Is is it still used by the CIA?", that answer being: "No it was closed at least since 2011".

    That is so much vacuous bull**** and spin the reason the inept dolts in the Republican party cannot get the best of the worst president in modern history.
    Abuse and torture is neither left nor right, it's simply barbarian
    Don't worry, just because it says "republican" by their name, it doesn't mean they are doing their best to protect this country or have any fidelity to the Constitution. And you're correct it's not left or right, it's about protecting the people of this country. Remember WWII? FDR? Any enhanced techniques going on there? Did it save lives? You bet it did.

    Yeah, go ahead ignore all that. But realize you have been at war for nearly 15 years and the situation is worse than when you decided to "kill them if they run". 15 years and a few hundred thousand American lives lost...
    Right, a few hundred thousand. Duh!

    And how many Mahar Arars have there been? An innocent man systematically sodomized and tortured on a daily basis by America's "friends" in Syria after having been "renditioned" by the CIA. They had the wrong man.
    You know what, you are so right. Now, let's shut down all our police departments since they have arrested the wrong person in the past. Your logic is just so hard to resist. Come back when you've got some sleep, you can do better than this.

    You're worse than Obama's followers

    Ah, the left. Politics above all.
    Ah, the right--politics above all.

    Ah, the fool who believes there is a difference between the dems and the repubs....

    This torture report has become a political football, and that is obvious to anyone paying attention.

    It should be a black and white issue--any persons who tortures others or facilitates the torture of others is guilty of crimes against humanity, and in a civilized society those persons would be prosecuted.

    How is the report biased?

    I mean besides because it points out that this was done at time when we had a Republican president, and dates are biased of course.
