    That doesn't make a damn bit of sense. If they were talking there wouldn't be a need for torture. Looks to me that either you or that interrogator are torturing the facts.

    Just why the hell would Cheney do that? The Bush adm. never wanted to tell the terrorists what we were doing to break their guys. That's what makes this the Obama scandal and no one else is reponsible.

    Re: Obama Administration to Cheney: Request Denied

    This free show of Cheney running around with his head about to explode is priceless! He absolutely can't stand the fact that he doesn't run the country anymore. He hates the fact that he can't bully the CIA to write up misleading and false reports anymore. Hell, he can't even get a couple documents declassified, if in fact he really wants to. He is drowning in his powerlessness.

    Where's the popcorn?
    Thank You Barack Obama for Restoring Honor To The Presidency.
    President Obama will rank as one of our greatest presidents!

    This entire torture debate has been a total disaster for the Anti-Republicans, and it would not surprise me at all if Dear Leader simply doesn't want to just wish it all away.
    Just wondering, does constantly using derogatory epithets make your arguments look weak or your mind? Once in a while is one thing, although I do remember a time when saying Shrub or Bushy or something was grounds for a 3 point ding... I guess the con mods decided to make change happen here too...

    It is clear to anyone who is not a raving Liberal partisan; Cheney and the Bush administration are being impugned in the court of public opinion by Liberal Democrats selectively releasing formerly secret memos and ranting about illegal torture while refusing to release memos that would vindicate the enhanced interrogation methods used on a select few terrorists which probably saved lives and led to the capture of other terrorist leaders.

    Why is that so hard to follow?

    The genie in the bottle has already been let out by this selective transparency we see from the Democrats; why is it now to be contained when good people have had their reputations dragged through the mud?

    I am always amused how the same people who spent 8 years falsely accusing the Bush Administration of incompetence and criminal behavior now so desperately defend the asinine level of stupidity we are now seeing from the Democrats.

    Are you for or against investigations into the torture/EIT issue? Personally, I want to see the memos Cheney wants to be released, and any others pertinent to the issue. Without full disclosure there will always be accusations that one side or the other is selectively releasing information.

    I am always amused seeing such selective outrage on this forum.

    I suggest you click on ADK's profile and read any of the many threads where he constantly uses offensive and derogatory "epithets" against the previous administration and anyone who has the audacity to disagree with his wild-eyed views and his hysteric driven emotional tirades; I have yet to see you whine about his patently uninformed and asinine assertions.

    I mean, your hypocrisy is OBVIOUS, but I am just curious if you even get it?

    You have to ask me this? I think that the release of these memos and these farcical hyper partisan witch hunts are offensive and childlike by attempting to impugn the previous administration for nothing more than not agreeing with them politically.

    I find it equally fantastical how anyone can believe that such selective partisan releases of formerly secret information for hyper partisan purposes can make this nation better or safer.

    We don't need FULL disclosure of ANYTHING. The previous administration legally determined it would use these methods, it briefed the correct Senate oversight committees and it selectively used these methods while ensuring they would not physically harm these terrorist thugs in a serious way in an effort to obtain critical information that could save lives when other methods apparently did not work.

    This isn't hard to figure out. Recent events suggest that what we are witnessing from Obama is the sudden cold hard reality of the FACTS and his sudden retreat from his previous naive notions and farcical partisan rhetoric.

    The next REALIZATION which you will see sometime later this year is the retreat of the Obama Administration from its previous stated desire to close Gitmo.

    As my signature suggests; nothing can frighten Obama more than REALITY.

    Since some have been released, don't we now need all the information to prevent things from being partisan?
