    Amnesty International hasn't even been able to close Gitmo yet.

    A new LAW demanding all who run for President must prove it and in court if need be, and if found to have run illegally you get a mandatory 10 years in Federal prison no exceptions and Presidents can never declare a Presidential pardon for any crime committed by anyone in the administration of the President charged with any crime, or misdemeanor, including removed Presidents.

    But none of that's not going to happen either, because it's too close to justice.

    I don't even know how to form a good response to such blatant and hateful bigotry.

    Re: Amnesty International Wants Bush Prosecuted for Admitted Waterboarding

    I am all for water boarding. See America always takes the high road even in torture. Water boarding is not torture. SERE school was torture and I enlisted to go through it.

    And any of you hypocrites want to sit here in judgement want to tell me that if your child was being held hostage and the one person whom could save their life was sitting in front of you and refuse to talk, tell me that you wouldnt consider and then follow through with doing anything within your means to get them to talk.

    Do they water board you till you're banging your head on the wall in solitary trying to kill yourself?

    I thought Obama was supposed to do that last January? Maybe he should just send the last detainees to Saudi Arabia where they can get rehabilitated with finger-painting lessons. Then they can rejoin al-Qaeda in Yemen where Obama can uphold American values and due process by splattering their body parts all over the Arabian Desert with Hellfire missiles.

    I'm sorry, but how is this question remotely relevant for suicide bombers?

    McCain: Japanese Hanged For Waterboarding - CBS News

    "There should be little doubt from American history that we consider that as torture otherwise we wouldn't have tried and convicted Japanese for doing that same thing to Americans," McCain said during a news conference.
    It was clearly considered torture during WW2, so why the double standard now.

    But as for charging Bush, unless he personally commanded it, I don't see the point.

    On a serious note, while water-boarding is horrible to experience, it does not rise to the lever of torture. [...]


    The key word is severe. In order for pain or suffering to be considered severe the effects must be lasting and/or permanent. While there are moments in which you feel like you are drowning, when the water is stopped, so does the sensation. Water-boarding may seem like torture, but it doesn't fit the definition.
    What about the obvious possibility of permanent psychological damage?

    So you are saying you would allow your child to die without trying to the any info out of the person that knew to save them?
