    That's because you're an Authoritarian masquerading as a Conservative.
    What do you base this on? Please elaborate instead of accusing with generalities.

    The law only applies to the "bad guys". The "good guys" can break the law for the right reasons.
    Strawmen, you are creating an argument which I never put forward and now will go ahead and attack .

    You don't give a damn about the Rule of Law or the Constitution...the foundation of what was is good about this Country.
    Thank you for that opinion.

    Why do you hate this Country so much?
    Wow what a troll you are.

    Not in any debate...but certainly 100% applicable in this one.

    How is it applicable? What similarities do you see, I am very interested to hear your position in detail (Not sarcasm).

    Oh who me? You say!....LOL

    You only wrote this

    The duty of the interegators was to gain information to protect American citizens, if they used hot coal up the nostril tactics that would fine by me.

    The duty of any Government worker/member of the military is to uphold the Rule of Law in the pursuit of critical information from "suspected" terrorists.. You also advocate torture which is against the law.

    You are an Authoritarian....plain and simple.

    Oh you'll jump up and down when "those" other people break the law but you ignore the law and even encourage breaking the law when your "side" is doing it.

    Should torture be prosecuted, is that not, the central question?

    You can't be serious???

    Nazi's used torture & killed many people with no proof that they were guilty of anything.

    We now have credible reports that CIA contractors, acting for the United States government....MAY HAVE tortured prisoners, threatened them with drills, dogs & mock executions & we are not supposed to investigate/prosecute those war crimes IF THEY ARE PROVEN?

    Should we also not investigate/prosecute the higher ups who gave these illegal orders?

    (members of our military/intelligence orgs are required to disobey illegal orders....period.

    That's why you have foreign governments, the CIA or contractors do it. They were a clever bunch, those crazy neocons.
    Wow. Am I awesome or what?

    Good point! ("Daddy get me out of serving in Vietnam please"...Bush & "Seven Deferment" Cheney never saw the ugly face of war, so they were more than happy to send other family's kids off to die for them!)

    Bush decided to stay at home and protect Alabama from attack by the Viet Cong. And, once again, he kept us safe because Alabama was never attacked. Cheney was kept home because his aim was terrible. They were afraid he'd shoot some American GI in the face.

    Lets face reality a bit.

    Prosecuting CIA officers would tear the US apart. it would inflict a wound that the US may take a long time to recover from.

    Obama can't favour the prosecution of the CIA, even if he wants to. Which is why he is still opposed to it, regardless of what Holder wants.

    But it is also a reality someone has to be sacrificed.

    So, I've come up with a solution that should please everyone.

    Vehemently prosecute the private contracters who are caught up in the same crap. But leave the CIA out of it.

    That way, someone pays for it, and you avoid ripping apart the CIA.

    Since, lets face it, no one gives a hoot about what happens to the private contracters, errr mercenaries.

    That should make the Gods of Justice happy.
