    That's great if he is a terrorist. Now what situation arose that could ONLY be solved by the torture of him?

    I am sorry, but you are forcing one to prescribe to the willing suspension of disbelief if those are your arguments.
    I am sure a debate occurred. I just believe the act of torture was easily accepted. It was more likely a "how do we pursued the acceptance of torture" then "is there anything we can do to avoid torture".

    What is fascinating is your own denial regarding your own positions on this topic, the FACTS surrounding them and your feigned morality.

    I have done nothing here but attempt to understand and comprehend the points you are so desperately trying to assert.
    Let me know where I said anything about Bush's "morality" or "hatred of Arabs", as you allude to below...

    I am trying to deal with the relevant thread topic, not imagined events that never occurred.

    Sorry for the confusion; if you are just fabricating events or issues for the sake of wandering off the topic, I will let you go.

    I confused your arguments for attempting to be relevant to the thread topic and dealing with REALITY.
    Please try to stay on top of the discussions if you choose to join in. Go back a few pages and read the exchange of hypothetical's that MrVicchio presented that my response was directed at.

    If you don't like hypothetical's then don't try to participate in the exchange.

    A second high jacking and attack against LA was stopped for starters.

    I suppose you think it would have been better for the attacks to go off and people die then to have water boarded this terrorist.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.
