    Really what Libertarians have said that, I would actually like some proof.

    No, the Associated Press reported that the intel came from KSM during standard interrogation, not torture.

    From the AP:

    Mohammed did not reveal the names while being subjected to the simulated drowning technique known as waterboarding, former officials said. He identified them many months later under standard interrogation, they said, leaving it once again up for debate as to whether the harsh technique was a valuable tool or an unnecessarily violent tactic.

    Dubbya has gracefully stayed away from any discussion of Obama or his Presidency.

    Bush is most likely not attending because he views this as 'Obama's Presidency', and feels it inappropriate to 'share the limelight' with a sitting President, when the sitting President should have the spotlight to themselves.

    Just like the birth certificate that's been on the internet for 3+ years, you put the facts right in their face and they still can't see them... because the facts contradict the narrative on Fox.

    This Democratic Party wankery needs to stop.

    The President offered, and Bush declined. No shame involved. Neither man is the better or worse for it.

    Sure, because the majority is always right.

    I liked it when bush went to Ground Zero too. There was a lot of hurt and fear and confusion and anger, and he had some strong words of encouragement. What he said left me feeling like he was on top of it and that something was getting done about what happened.

    I'm not interested in seeing the President make another speech on an otherwise insignificant day. He had his national address when it happened, if he wants to mention it in September that's fine, but there's no reason whatsoever to make a special trek out to New York months in advance.

    At any rate, unless by "still suffering" you mean the ones who are struggling with chronic health problems they picked up by breathing the air that day, I don't give a damn at this point. It's been almost a decade, for crying out loud.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.
