    Clearly not. I am surprised you are so unaware. Oh, I know they claim it. And I know you believe it.

    We are into our 6th year of the Obama administration. Has the Patriot act been shut down? No on the contrary its intrusion and power of spying on Americans has grown immensely. McCain was a prisoner of war where they didn't have humane acts in place. What he allows his experience to shade a true perspective. The U.S. has always been willing to allow the Red Cross International or any other Human Rights group access to detainees.

    And he should have retired a decade ago. McCain is all about McCain.

    Do you have any idea how many GOP Senators are just as old as McCain or older?
    Yet they are the consummate party of term limits .
    Too many. Once they have lost both nerve and intellect it is past time to retire them. We would not have this problem if the Senators were under the control of the State legislatures. We need to fix that with another amendment

You see after all this time there really shouldn't be any detainees left at Gitmo. They should have already faced a military tribunal and either released or be counted as dead. Now the Obama way is not capture them but hit them with drones and kill off a lot of innocent lives and our on the ground informants who are desperately needed in gathering intelligence in the process. WTH?
    You make good points. By now they should have all be released or executed.

    I haven't read the full report as of yet but a good 500 pages in I've seen the CIA have used sleep deprivation, water boarding, refusing to treat injuries like open bullet wounds, rectal rehydration, and other torture methods that brought victims to the point of mental break. Believe me when I say, the report does not shy away from the details.

    That's not grounds to arrest Feinstein for treason, sorry to burst your bubble there, Mr.Republican. If we are to hold anyone accountable, it's the CIA agents who allowed the torture to take place.

    Take no more prisoners?

    And it's nice to know you support targeting innocent civilians, kids and whatnot, so long as some are guilty. OBL would agree with you. And ISIS agrees with you on the public executions. Good to know you'd like us to descend to their level. And I can't see a downside of perhaps 1,000 public, televised executions.... Good ideas all.
    Thank you. To hell with all enemies of the United States--wherever they may live.

    What worries me, or is a problem IMO, is the attempts to whitewash it and pretend that it was something other than what it was. I don't favor prosecuting anyone for what happened, but I find it abhorrent to cheer it as something we should be proud of or ready to do again. This was torture, and we need to decide if we're a country where torture is accepted as a legitimate interrogation technique.
    Why don't you want prosecutions? Where the approved methods were left behind, it was criminal. Where this was lied about, it was a cover-up and deception of the citizenry. We can not let that precedent stand.

    We must discuss the enhanced techniques as points on a continuous line from polite questioning to hiding the suspect slowly over months. We need to know, what we are talking about and explain, what we were doing. The approved methods were not torture in any intelligent definition of the word and saying it was, is wrong and doing us immense harm. If we let this stand, it would be crazy.

    I am not sure i know, what you mean. Of course we should "grow up" and learn to live with the fact that the methods approved for interrogation were not torture by a very long shot. That it now seems that in many more cases than thought the allowed limits were overstepped does not change this. Yes, you are absolutely right. We must grow up and stop misusing the language for political reasons.

    Or left in detention with life sentences.
