    Funny how when its YOUR family you would but believe anyone else family isn't worth it. How typically liberal of you.
    So you guys admit you support torture. Sounds to me saying "waterboarding isn't torture" is just a red herring then.

    The problem with torture is that it is a crime.

    Do you have a problem with Americans being tortured? Do you think McCain gave up information while being tortured that saved enemy lives...

    I bet the enemies thought they were just protecting their country too.

    I bet the enemies used all the same arguments for justification too.


    If it's OK for us to torture, then you're saying it's ok for them to torture too... It's done for the same reason on both sides, so the next time our soldiers are tortured you can't complain.

    Not only that, it's not like Slick the Perjurer Clinton had a shortage of political ATM's at his disposal to fight it. Slick the Perjurer Clinton would have been wise to fight it to protect his name, and by settling... he did the best damage control possible.

    Had this thing gone to court, he would have looked as an even bigger pervert and liar than he already is... if that's possible. Then again... let's rework that last statement... chances are a huge number of his supporters would have been disgusted by his behavior and he would have lost support... which would have killed any hope for Hillary so long as she was saddled to the creep.

    With the best lawyers money could buy at his disposal, and money not being a factor, he caved because he knew he was absolutely, 100% farked... of his own perverted doings.

    Our troops are tortured and us not torturing doesnt stop them (terrorist) from doing so. So your weak agruement just got blown out of the water. Dont show up to a battle in a Sloop when facing a Man of War.

    So torture shouldn't be an international crime? They are doing it to us, so it justifies us doing it too... just don't prosecute anybody?

    Where does this stop and end?

    Should we just let all the Nazis walk free now, because torture is fair game?

    This is a fundamental misunderstanding of the founding of this nation.

    The terroristas must be pissing themselves laughing at this. Libs and their organs trying to get Bush over non-torture.

    Somewhere sitting in their cave:
    Ahmed:You hear our friends in America, the Democrats are going after Bush for waterboarding?

    Abdul: Yeah... isn't it great to have idiots like that working for us against the vile, infidel, pig eating, evil Americans... Their very own... ?! (Huge laughter in cave)

    Ahmed: Yeah... torture, we'lll show these weasels torture, and they'll be the first we use as human pinata's. Like those Americans burned, dragged through the streets and hung from the bridges.

    Abdul: What about those Jews... Danny Pearl and that American soldier who's heads we popped off. (Laughing heard in cave)

    Abdul & Ahmed and the other cave dwellers (in concert): God is Great, God is Great...

    We are dealing with terorists here, not ''soldiers' who fall under the terms of the Geneva Agreements. And these terrorists are prepared to murder as many people as possible and to create as much carnage as possible. They must be stopped at all costs.

    Waterboarding isn't torture. Just because Obama signs a bill stating so doesn't mean it is so. As we all know, Obama has been tragically wrong on pretty much everything.
    That's why the Dems got their cans kicked.

    That is so stupid. Why antagonize the enemy?
    I don't know whether to laugh or scream. Let's see... they've been terrorizing us for decades, and what have we done exactly to antagonize them?
    Live lives that disagree with their 7th century way of life?
    They fly planes into buildings and we did what to antagonize them?

    You know, these cum stains passing for humans deserve to be antagonized. They deserve to feel our wrath. They should live in fear of us. They brought it on... now it's time for us to finish them off, no matter how long it takes.

    So, we take an interrogation technique off the table that isn't torture, is effective, has saved scores of lives and could save hundreds of thousand in the future.

    Sheer insanity.

    And had they not broke Khalid Shaikh Mohammed Cumstain, and attacks had been successful, all the Libs here would be screaming about Bush's inability to do what was necessary to protect the homeland.

    Amnesty International can suck it.

    The Hague has about as much jurisdiction over Americans as Judge Judy.
