    But then again, he's merely a veteran who has been tortured. Surely not anything republicans would care about. Let's try someone else:

    “It was well said—by Jean Tarrou in The Plague, I think—that attendance at lectures in an unknown language will help to hone one's awareness of the exceedingly slow passage of time. I once had the experience of being 'waterboarded' and can now dimly appreciate how much every second counts in the experience of the torture victim, forced to go on enduring what is unendurable.”

    There's just no doubt in my mind - under any set of rules - water boarding is torture. -- Tom Ridge

    And of course there are studies and the like that support me as well:

    All this was done, IF DONE on foreign soil to people who were not part of any recognized govt. or country of the world thus not party to the Geneva Convention. Are you ever going to answer the question, what actions would you take against someone who knew the location and time of a bomb going off in your community that would kill your family>

    Where the crime was committed and to whom is immaterial.

    Then why didn't Holder find anything to prosecute?

    I've asked him before, over and over....the best I can figure is he would let them die.

    Guess that is what they mean when they talk about liberal compassion

    I don't accept your beloved report as accurate. The entire project is a crock, to use Vice-President Cheney's term, of crap.

    That he didn't indict any at all is testimony to his moral turpitude.

    IMO, that is obvious, considering his behavior in Fast 'n Furious.

    How about answering the question or do you ever think about your own family and what would happen if they are in danger? I cannot believe how nave liberals really are and how bad things can never happen to them. Too many are just like you believing the rest of the world thinks exactly like you do and has the same values. I am sure those dead bodies dangling on the bridge in Fallujah or Daniel Pearl's head on a tray went right over your head.

    These people performing acts of terror aren't covered under the Geneva Convention nor should they be treated as human beings. Too bad you don't understand reality.
