    Is in an option or not?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Stop moving goal posts, you claimed it was the main focus of SERE, then claimed you were Trained on it, then you have reduced it to simple conversations....


    It's apparent this argument is over.

    No. It isn't moiving the goal posts, but trying to get at it another way. Not only is deception part of the prisoner, but part of the interrogator. It is always part of the discussion. Not sure there needs to be a policy, but if it is an option, and it is, it has to be part of the training, policy or not.

    And you always run when things don't go your way.

    But I did. I explained why and what I was trying to get at.

    Re: Obama, In A Blow To Closing Guantanamo, Signs Law

    today, monday, march 7:

    President Obama on Monday ordered trials by military commission to resume at Guantánamo Bay.

    The move signals another defeat for Obama, who pledged to close the terrorist detention facility in Cuba within one year of taking office.

    In a fact sheet, the White House said Obama “remains committed” to closing the facility, but the president’s decision to lift the ban on military commissions signals the unlikelihood that Obama will successfully transfer all of the prisoners in Cuba.

    Shortly after Obama came to office and announced his goal of closing the facility, the administration suspended new charges in military commissions in Cuba.

    But on Monday, Obama directed Secretary of Defense Robert Gates to “issue an order rescinding his prior suspension on the swearing and referring of new charges in the military commissions.”

    embarrassed yet?
