    My exaggerated fear?? What's that alll about? Following 9/11 the leftists claimed Bush was unprepared for the attack. Now he prepares America and they blame him for that also. Why not just watch the interview to the end and lean another perspective rather than letting Salon interpret the news for you.
    Now you try to marginalize with a lie. I have noted two who were not terrorist who were killed. And I'm all for punishing terrorist. But not for abusing people just to be abusing them. Torture is ineffective and immoral. That means there is no reason to do it.
    You have no idea who were terrorists, who had a relationship with terrorists, and so on. Only those who were in the room have an idea and you dismiss it as 'propaganda'. You will never learn unless you make an effort.

    Irony is not a metal but it can make for strong walls of denial.

    Bush was unprepared for 9/11 and then he failed to follow through on the legitimate objective of controlling Afghanistan owing to some bizarre hatred of Iraq's leader.

    I don't speak for leftist, whoever they are, but being prepared is different that exaggerating the threat. And he didn't prepare America. He was reckless and made things worse, broke laws, and abandoned our ideals and morals without cause, wasting American lives and other innocent life without justification. Very different things.

    You have no idea who were terrorists, who had a relationship with terrorists, and so on. Only those who were in the room have an idea and you dismiss it as 'propaganda'. You will never learn unless you make an effort.
    Two were identified early on. They're on the record. The report lists 26. So, it must be acknowledged we tortured innocent people. This is a fact.

    This 'bizarre hatred', if you chose to call it that, was felt by every US politician and almost every world leader.

    Well I can't add much to that. With all the evil going on in the American government I suppose the people will eventually get what they deserve.

    Torture is evil. We used to know that. Those who don't are an embarrassment to those who came before us.

    Well, your admission of America's committing evil against innocent Muslims is certainly justification for more terrorism, and their use of it as recruiting tool. Have you also been contributing to their web sites?

    Nope, it is what you remember but that don't make it so.

    The US committing torture is certainly not justification for terrorism but it certainly is being used as recruiting tool by the Islamic fanatics.
