    Yes, I'm looking for a US law and/or court case that held waterboarding as torture and/or illegal. Any info?

    Probably not?

    Do you think the President of the United States, with all his high priced lawyers and advisors, would allow himself to be extorted by a young woman from small town Arkansas?

    She must have been a great deal smarter than them to plan and get away with such a scheme!

    Clinton's MO is Deny! Deny! Deny! and denigrate the claimant until the evidence is irrefutable, as in the Lewinsky case also. Then it's the 'Aw Shucks' and a big grin defense

    Torture only applies in limited instances, such as interrogation.
    It is either torture or it is not torture.

    There were complaints at Gitmo that playing the radio too loudly was also "torture". Soon interrogation itself might be torture, if questions are asked without the terrorists consent.

    No raised voices, no rude gestures, no harsh looks. Not until we gain the consent of terrorists first.

    It was a disgrace, wasn't it Apdst?

    At one time the media, or so goes the tale anyway, was suppose to expose government wrongdoing. Now they participate in it.

    We should all be suspicious of government certainly but, over time, i've become far more suspicious of the media.

    It has to be frustrating for the media to see GW Bush's popularity growing and in some cases higher than Obama's. how can this be? Anyone that has watched any of the Bush interviews promoting his book can see why. What a classy individual he really is, totally different than the public image created by the media. The continued hatred of individuals here who suffered nothing under GW Bush just goes to show how intellectually bankrupt those people are and how they have entirely too much invested in the destruction of a good man.

    We hate the man for his actions, not his personality. I know this may be difficult for members of the Cult of Reagan...

    I saw a couple of those interviews and was struck not only buy his sincere geniality, which was well known, but by the strength behind it. In this he was reminiscent of Reagan. These are the only two Presidents I've seen who seem able to meld the two so effortlessly.

    That you "hate" the man says a great deal about the Left today.

    You hate his actions because you base your opinions out of ignorance, not facts which of course you want to ignore. I learned a long time ago to trust but verify and that is good advice for liberals. It is ok to buy the rhetoric but then verify that rhetoric for if you did you wouldn't buy the media spin again. GW Bush did nothing more than do his job which was to protect and defend this country. That was his number one priority and he did it well.
