    There were facts in the video but, they're not good enough for you, right?
    No, there were allegations.


    Typical "kill the messenger" bs.
    Hardly. It goes to credibility.

    Credible link, please.

    Here in America, we have thousands of bogus abuse cases from prisoners in our state and federal prison systems every year. They file lawsuits that are thrown out of court, even though the burden of proof is far lower for a lawsuit than for the criminal cases you're now demanding against Bush and Cheney.

    Generally, if a prisoner really was tortured, there's some evidence to support his accusation above and beyond the criminal's self-serving testimony. There will be an eyewitness, or a medical report about the injuries sustained.

    But not in this case. I wonder why?

    By the way: in your opinion, what is the harshest interrogation method that should be legal for CIA interrogators to use on a known terrorist mastermind, who is responsible for the murders of thousands of American civilians?

    You wouldn't recognize a "credible" link if it bit you in the butt.

    I find it ironic people complain about people fighting for your right to complain.
    Damn those guys! Determined to save our miserable lives despite ourselves.

    ADK, I'm wondering if you are going to respond to me or dodge my response because you don't have adequate rebuttal. Perhaps you just didn't see my post.

    In other words, you don't have one. Just your vivid imagination.

    Thanks for playing our game today. Our lovely and talented spokesmodel will have some nice parting gifts for you on your way out of the studio.



    And I had a feeling you were going to dodge the following question.

    "By the way: in your opinion, what is the harshest interrogation method that should be legal for CIA interrogators to use on a known terrorist mastermind, who is responsible for the murders of thousands of American civilians?"

    Looky here, we have a brown nosing groupee for the Chicago Crime Machine in Washington, feigning moral discussed over harsh questioning of terrorists. It could be worse for these goons, we could use Chicago style methods get them to talk.

    I answered your question. What's the matter, can't read?
