    : Nearly 3,000 people routinely went to work that day, never dreaming it would be their last day on earth due to terrorism. Apparently some people have forgotten that.

    At no point did I ever consider thanking any sort of deity that George W. Bush was president.

    There is nothing in today's report that rises to the level of McCain's treatment in Vietnam.

    Great. Can I assume you'll keep your opinions to yourself regarding cops and anything military or shoot, gun control? Afterall, if you haven't been shot, you should get no say.
    No, because everyone here seems to know what torture is...but..they don't.

    Reading stupid posts is torture, but not like water boarding or having someone shove food up your ass.
