    To suggest flat out that torture does not work is ignorance. Like any other form of interrogation...it has it's successes and failures.

    ..and the USA managed to survive many wars and conflicts for over 200 years without needing legalized torture.

    Be a big strong man, and let someone waterboard you.

    Christopher Hitchins did...and he challenged Sean Hannity to, and Hannity said he would. That was about 4 years ago...still hasn't done it yet...but he sure blathers on about it like a big strong man...

    Of course it happened, and that was the "Pearl Harbour" incident that Cheney, Rumsfeld, and the PNAC were waiting for in order to start their long-desired Iraq War. Like I said, Bin Laden found the perfect administration.

You, on the other hand, are spewing the talking points propaganda you've been given and acting as if you either read the report or wrote it and have all the answers. You're being led by the nose.

    Did Pol Pot also object to Democratic Party perfidy? Do you believe a communist revolutionary would be on my side? He would stand with you, Feinstein, McCain, and all the other liberal bed wetters out to damage the US.

    Why? I already know it is uncomfortable. All of the secrets I know have aged. There is not much point in making me uncomfortable to discover them. The most important were revealed by Democrat presidents.

    Do you actually believe the nonsense you post?

    Meh, I thought liberals rejected the notion of "American exceptionalism" as a myth born of arrogance anyway and that we're no better, and in fact worse, than any other nation out there.

    If that's all true, anyway, we might as well get some intel.
