    Where do you draw the line on prevention? Should we start arresting people before they plan or commit these crimes?
    Yawn, pointless post. No the same shouldn't apply, we have the Constitution they don't. See how that works. Your silliness is amusing here.

    GLOBAL WAR ON TERROR = No terrorist attacks count because we are in a global war. Everywhere is considered a war zone.

    No, that's not true.

    You've tried a failed attack that never breached the Embassy compound, and an attack on a base IN a war zone.

    Me thinks so, because to claim man can withstand torture and not reveal vital info has been blown to shreds with some terrorists we have captured... and I don't consider water boarding torture. Loud music... sleep deprivation... hot-cold syndrome either.

    You can feel good about terrorists being protected as innocent civilians are executed.

    I suspect the terrorists of the world like your kind and encourage you and Obama's type.

    Tell me, is it moral to not do everything humanly possible to spare innocent men, women and children from a terrorists attack?

    If the answer is "yes" then we side together. If not, then you seem to think a terrorists short term health is more important. Broken bones and ripped skin heals. Dead is dead.

    It may seem cold, but these are the types of decisions Obama must make. Do we protect terrorists or innocent civilians?

    How could you not consider water boarding, sleep deprivation, or hot-cold syndrome torture? If someone can barely stay conscious how do you expect them to give you usable information. That just doesn't make sense.
