    Ah, the left. Politics above all.
    It is important to learn things like this though -- the C.I.A. has run amok before. But this instance it involves the President, the White House, the NSC, Congress, the Director of National Intelligence, the Director of Central Intelligence and the C.I.A. Inspector General being purposely mislead. If you don't see the problem with that, then, well, I really don't know what to say...

    Or they are mad because a cartoonist drew Muhammad, or a million other things, Islamic extremists will use any excuse or even none at all to commit terror attacks. You are as naive as Chamberlain if you think appeasing them will magically make them not hate us.

    They had access to the results. That's enough.

    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 it involves all those people how come none of them were interviewed for the report?

    Greetings, Crovax.

    : Good point you made about how quickly minds change when it's no longer abstract, but in your face and personal!

    Every act of torture spits on the grave of the victims of terrorism.

    We have commited acts that proove we are just as barbaric as any terrorist.

    If the governments won't bring the torturers to justice, maybe someone else will.
