    Happy Friday radio!

    I heard quite a few times on both MSNBC and Fox that he (KSM) eventually cracked and gave the information that was missing - and needed - to find OBL. They could be wrong, I don't know but it's said a lot.

It's the ideology that has taken over America goes most commonly by the name of “Political Correctness.” Some people see it as a joke. It is not. It is deadly serious. It seeks to alter virtually all the rules, formal and informal, that govern relations among people and institutions. It wants to change behavior, thought, even the words we use. To a significant extent, it already has. Whoever or whatever controls language also controls thought. Nuff said.

    Hey MMC.
    The CIA says lots of things.
    Like any gov't bureaucracy, they divulge info---maybe true, maybe not--- and spin that info to make themselves look good.
    No matter how cynical I become toward politicians, it's never enough.

    That may be true.....but what about the Navy Seals, Gates and the Pakistani with their statements, and actions with the matter? Wherein they spoke of certain elements or where they got the info. Then what about the Pakistani denying and arresting those that were involved.

    So why wouldn't that line of thinking apply to Feinstein's little fairy tale here? Seems your belief is situational.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Somehow I'm not convinced that your ignorance is fully honest.

    But I'll play along. Combatants will fight harder if they believe that they will be tortured if they are captured, and will surrender easier if they believe they will be well cared for. Obviously you know this, because it's something a 5 year old could figure out.

    Which of course is why someone like John McCain would be against torture. Torture always results in a net negative for the side that does it.

    And also, lets stop pretending that anyone cares about the effectiveness or the ethics of torture. This isn't about intelligence, it's about revenge. If there were a painless truth drug that made a suspect give up every shred of information, the same people demanding torture now would still support torture. And what's worse, these same people would support it without being able to actually go through with it themselves. I find it hard to respect that.
