    Re: Obama Administration to Cheney: Request Denied

    This thread is another great example of something I have noticed recently. Once again, I was accused of having made statements that I am pretty sure I have not made, and once again, when I asked where I made these statements that I was accused of, the person making the accusations all of a sudden finds something else to talk about. About 5 times in a week now that it has happened.

    I will ask Triad again, politely: where exactly is it that I commented on whether torture brought any results of merit?

    Agreed! After seeing how bad the CIA can screw up documenting documents, I'm sure they too are in CYA mode.
    Thank You Barack Obama for Restoring Honor To The Presidency.
    President Obama will rank as one of our greatest presidents!

    I want to see the documents myself because if they are anything like the bull**** that the Office of Special Plans presented they will end up biting people in the ass. It's one thing for a memo from somebody participating in the illegal act of torture to say "torture is an effective tool" but it's quite another once the claims contained within the memo are actually investigated to test their veracity. They are going to have a tough time actually proving that the information in these memos are factually correct.

    It wouldn't be the first time they fudged on things.

    Those where your words, directed at me. The problem is I did not say what you claimed I said, as you now admit. In fact, since I did not say what you claimed, your whole point falls apart. Instead of being inconsistent, as you try and suggest, I am completely consistent.

    You need to go back and read what I have written on this subject before you make that type assumption. I have not made any assumptions to the best of my knowledge, and when not sure of facts, I try and make sure I am clear on that subject(you might try that).

    Make a mountain out of a molehill.

    You might try to quit assuming that I'm trying to attack you and reply to what I said without all the drama.

    Reply to what you said? You mean like I had been, before you decided to make up a position for me to discredit what I was saying?

    Well anyway... in good news I think Pelosi just trumped this decision.

    Maybe not but there is a decent chance that do to her antics they will now be demanded not simply asked for.
