    And what we're saying is that it's still going on.

    Really, you can say that Obama is lessening torture on suspected insurgents and increasing chance of torture on Americans. Anyone ever see Hostel? Maybe Obama is going to sell Americans to hostile countries to pay for the debt. All that's left now is to make it legal to sell terrorist's kidneys and form organ crop wagons and rolling execution vehicles.

    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.

    So... when can we expect to hear calls from Leftists that President Obama should be impeached for condoning renditions?

    As I asked before . . .

    What's to review?
    It's not "tolerance" if you already approve of what you purport to "tolerate."

    President Obama should be impeached for condoning renditions. (Not really, it just needs to be fixed and wanted to play along)

    That's right.

    Re: Obama shuts Gitmo but expands renditions

    Renditions themselves are not illegal. Renditions to countries where there is reasonable suspicion that the person will be tortured (Egypt, Syria) is. So it looks to me like Obama is being pragmatic by not doing away with renditions altogether, and he's doing the right thing by making sure renditions don't violate U.S. and international law.

    It's good to have an intelligent person at the helm again.

    Standard, judicial renditions are not at issue here. You're equivocating.

    Yes, and the spinning is in full force.
