    No, because those people volunteered for training to survive torture. They were not criminally tortured, they were trained on what to expect. We tortured people who did not consent to it.

    Pelosi should go down with the Bush and the rest of them. I can't stand that women. Hopefully Harry Reid knew as well.

    No they volunteered to endure EIT's (enhanced interrogation techniques). EIT's are not torture. Are you suggesting that we ask terrorist such as Kalid Sheikh Mohammed if we can please waterboard him. Maybe we should just be nice to the poor SOB. How soon we forget.

    It's torture and I simply disagree with us doing it. I would like to think that there are still some things that separate us from them.

    Nailed.

    She should be forced to resign for conduct unbecoming of a US Congresswoman.

    If we made that a crime and resignation the appropriate punishment we'd have 535 vacancies in Congress in short order.

    Strangely enough, I'm not seeing a down side to that.

    Obviously, like the Dems war vote, which was political gauze to fill a gaping wound; 30-years of hostility to our intel and military... this is another Democrat moment of CYA.

    What YOU folks define as torture... waterboarding... was just fine in the highly sensitive post 911 setting. It was A-OK, but just as the Dems began their shell game with their war vote... going back to their scorpion ways of attacking what they voted for... they also found a new toy in the Military/Intel arena that they believed could score them more points, and weaken our national security.

    I look forward to seeing this halfwit Speaker slither out of this one.

    You mean our enemies are allowed to use waterboarding?
