    I think that might only affect you and maybe me, although I can stomach the blueberry ones in an emergency.

I want him to use the full weight of the Office of the President of the United States to stop this heinous practice and move this nation forward.

    No I didn't say he wasn't doing anything about it. What I meant was I want to actually get done. No political excuses. Push it and get it done. I don't want him succumbing to horsetrading or "mushroom cloud" fear mongering. I want him to close the book on it. It's not done until it's actually done. He could back off of some of his commitments here for any number of reasons. He's the President but he's still a politician.

    Obviously he can't just push the book on it and get it done, because it involves funding he has to get approved through congress.

    Alexander currently has a book out about the interrogations he conducted on high-value insurgent prisoners in Iraq. These interrogations culminated with the intel necessary to isolate Musab al-Zarqawi and kill him. A good read.

    Well, that's what the leftist twits in the media have propagandized.

    It's a complete lie, however. He is free to torture whomever he wishes and nothing has changed whatsoever if Obama deigns to call the subjects to be totured targets of counter terrorism measures.

    What amuses me with the terrorist sympathizers is that lot of them must think water boarding is the first thing interrogators do. Because I am sure a hand full of sugar free cookies is a lot cheaper and lot easier than SIMULATED water drowning, sleep deprivation and other things that actually require effort, more money and are probably used as a last resort.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
