    True enough, you will never know, as long as your reading comp stays so low.

    Thanks for trying to play, tho.

    Water boarding is torture.

    Torture is against the law.

    People who authorize torture have committed a crime.

    This isn't about left or right.

    No, it's about legal standards and statutory interpretation. It's somewhat more nuanced than your post would indicate.

    How is it possible that torture is illegal, people were tortured and nobody is being charged with a crime in regards to said torturing? I won't claim to know the specifics about where authorizing something illegal and immoral is considered a breach of professional ethics, but the system is clearly failing here. I believe in the rule of law, so it may be that legal technicalities prevent anyone from getting prosecuted. However, if that is the case, I would like to know how so such absurd loopholes can be closed.

    Crimes are not always prosecuted. Just reality.

    Exposing a covert CIA spy is against the law, even for a president, yet no one was charged with that crime either. If the Dems had any kahunas they would have gone after Bush and Cheney and Rove and company. But, Obama and Holder probably thought that fight would take too long. Also, the case was already damaged due to Libby's lies and obstruction, which he was found guilty of 4 felonies because of.

    Maybe some day, some brave soul will go after Bush and Cheney for authorizing illegal torture. Someday...
