    Oh, boy.

    Some people are going to believe what they're going to believe no matter what's in front of their faces, I guess.
    It's not "tolerance" if you already approve of what you purport to "tolerate."

    Let me put it to you in simple language. In the three Executive Actions cited in the article, the word rendition is not mentioned. So how is rendition expanded?

    So then you suppoert Obama's defacto support of Rendition then.
    You should try to remember, ideas are conveyed by researching information, vetting sources, and confirming said information. Not by regurgitating talking points given to you by your "news" station.

    Didn't say it was. What you said, however, was that it was going to be ended. Nothing in the executive orders says or implies that.

    The article also states:

    In his executive order on lawful interrogations, Obama created a task force to reexamine renditions to make sure that they "do not result in the transfer of individuals to other nations to face torture," or otherwise circumvent human rights laws and treaties

    I would chat with her when I'm feeling particularly snarky, but I wouldn't ever call her on the phone.

    The OP claims rendition will be expanded. What I said is that when the issue is addressed, I expect it will be ended.
