    Given the choice of who I would want protecting me as CIC which is the basic role of the govt. mandated by the U.S. Constitution I would take GW Bush in a heartbeat over Barack Obama, hands down.

    And this has what to do with the UNHRC?

    The evidence suggests there were helluva lot more prisoners rendititoned and tortured than just "three".
    You have severe problems reading plain language.

    I said three people were waterboarded.


    Some even died from the ordeal. And since none of them had a fair trial, we will never know the proof of the prisoners guilt or innocense and that, along with the use of torture is what undermines US credibility and justice system in the eyes of the world.

    "...At the time, Mr. Holder cited a 2004 report by the C.I.A. inspector general that discussed several instances in which detainees died during interrogations by agency officials in Iraq and Afghanistan. It also documented the use of unauthorized techniques — like mock executions, threats to family members and inflicting waterboarding — more often than the department had approved....read" http://www.nytimes.com/2010/11/10/wo...er=rss&emc=rss

    You notice the words "unauthorized" throughout there?
    It's a little light on detail there.

    Do you have a link for your assertion?

    Not sure what to think of this. I read that the U.S. hung Japanese soldiers during WWII for waterboarding.
    I use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.

    It has more to do with your assertion that only three people were "waterboarded" and "no" innocents. You were wrong.

    Goes to show, its effective to a degree. I'm personally okay with violating the rights of terrorists if it means protecting the right to life of innocent civilians.
    Actually shows how big a liar and scum bag he is. The British are denying everything he said, and if it stand believing a known liar (Bush) and the Blair/Brown administration and its people, ... well no contest there.

    Even the liar Bush does not make such wild claims as you suggest he does. Have you read the book?

    You've been trying to derail and change the subject for two pages now. This isn't about what you want to talk about, it's about Bush. He came to office with a huge sack, and now we have a metrosexual man in office, and you want to cloud the issue. Bush acted like a President should and terrorists bastards were made to talk.
