    Neither time nor page count can change the underlying facts. The authors of the report spoke to no one involved.

    I could barely hold back my vomit after reading that.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Of course you meant to say it took five years to fabricate. Facts might not lie but that does not make the Democrats any less treasonous.

    Given that it was written by Democrats I am sure it is largely lies with an occasional moment of truth where it harms the nation the most. By and large that is exactly what enhanced interrogation does. It makes the subject so uncomfortable he is willing to cooperate, even if only a little to reduce his discomfort.

    If one or two die along the way it is not a big deal. They are enemy unlawful combatants. They have been waging war against us for a long time and continue to do so today. So let's be harsh with the ones who appear to have information useful to us.
    Good to know inalienable rights is just a shtick. Please don't tell us about Obama's unconstitutional actions anymore?

    No, but this isn't the suffering olympics. I have never understood the attitude "It is fine if we do this bad thing because others have done worse."

    Does not matter. They had the documents needed to make their assessment.

    The CIA rebuttal deconstructs that claim too.
