    The New York Times has yet to REPORT, IN A NEWS STORY (versus opinion piece or quote of a political figure) on the actions taken against unlawful combatants as "torture." They will not use the term to describe U.S. actions in news reporting, with the goal being "objectivity."

    So, when they talk about waterboarding, Times reporters scrupulously avoid calling it "torture," although they might quote political figures who call it that.

    I cannot speak for congress or the WH, but this leftist democrat opposes prosecutions because I don't feel it would be good for the country. Kinda like Nixon getting pardoned was good for the country.

    You do realize that most of these are in the OPINION page and not contained in their regular news however. The articles talking about torture are direct quotes of the subjects in the articles. But the implication is clear none-the-less.

    The New York Times is usually careful about separating the TRUTH from the FICTION of their OPINION pieces.

    THESE ARE NOT CREDIBLE, OBJECTIVE NEWS SOURCES.

    What part of that do you not understand?

    I appreciate your honesty, but why bother having the public debate about what is torture if nothing is going to be done? Could it be that Liberal Democrats merely want to prosecute their political opponents in the court of public opinion? Hmmmmm.....very interesting is it not?

    Is it too much for you to simply admit that you were wrong?
    If you believe in the Supernatural then you can become a millionaire!

    Questioning or criticizing another's core beliefs is inadvertently perceived as offensive and rude.

    What does that have to do with this thread? This is about a Conservative radio host getting waterboarded. If you want to start a thread discussing the Bush Administration feel free to, but try not to derail this thread further with your personal qualms against previous administrations.
