    "The Ugly American" just won't go away, no matter how much we do for the stricken peoples of the world while other countries do nothing.

    He's infesting this thread, what do you expect? America does nothing that conflicts with it's own interests.
    Don't work out, work in.

    You don't get it sir. I watched maybe 3 Jack Bauer episodes and found it insulted my intelligence. Those who live in his hypothetical world are in a make-believe world. I'll pass, thanks just the same.

    Right, it wasn't hypothetical that terrorists flew planes into the WTC. What effort would you have done to prevent that? I suggest you learn to think instead of feeling all the time.

    Yes it is rebuttal that is on point.
    There were no charges.
    "An unwillingness" is nothing but your spin.
    There were no charges and there will be no charges.

    So it meets the very parts you underlined. what was done to these people was worse than beatings. It will be with them longer.
    Wrong on all counts.

    Wrong again.
    He died because folks who were not authorized (as in acting on there own) severely battered his body and was left untreated.
    He did not die because of being in that stress position as you want to lamely assert.

    [...]

    But his legs, which had been pummeled by guards for several days, could no longer bend.

    [...]

    A subsequent autopsy revealed that his legs had been "pulpified," and that even if Dilawar had survived, it would have been necessary to amputate his legs.[7]


    [...]

    Wrong. You failed to counter the rebuttal and you can not. There were no charges and there will be no charges.
    And the Memo is all that is needed.

    You are again speaking nonsense.
    So, as that is your claim. Prove it!

    It is that simple. Prove what you assert.

    Heck, I think so much and feel so little that when I watched the news helicopters flying over Shanksville PA on that fateful day, I had the same questions the news guy talking had--where was the wrecked airliner? It wasn't there, and 13 years later we know what actually happened there.

    Point is, there actually were no mythical hijackers that you refer to. Yes, airplanes DID fly into those towers, but they were drone aircraft controlled by wicked men working behind the scenes in what might best be described as the military industrial complex.

    We were all deceived that day, and only about half of us now recognize that.

    I would suggest you need to study a bit more and perhaps sharpen your analytical thinking skills. Things are not always as they appear.

    It really is amazing how big those drones were that flew into the WTC. Where were drones that big created? Guess the video was wrong, probably produced in Hollywood, right?
