    Do you believe that all prisoners of war experience enhanced interrogation techniques?

    We put ours in Club Med, give them a Koran, a prayer rug, fatten them up and then, well rested and revitalized we return them to battlefields where they can kill more of us.

    Try not to conflate what happens to high value detainees and the typical captured unlawful enemy combatant.

    I don't believe you. The stuff you've been posting proves you have superior gag reflex control.

    Good to know inalienable rights is just a shtick. Please don't tell us about Obama's unconstitutional actions anymore?
    What? Why not? Obama has damaged the nation. And now his tool, Feinstein has done even more damage. Are you unable to hold both thoughts in your head at the same time?

    So for you... Obama damages the nation by admitting that we're torturing people... but not by torturing those people in secret?

    You do know what enemy we're talking about here, don't you? I'm pretty sure every American prisoner of war captured by the Taliban, Al Qeada, and their associates has been treated wonderfully, usually by having their heads handed to them.

    Obama is not as much against torture as many think he is. The only difference is that he farms it out.
