    Re: Dick Cheney Would Torture Again

    Obama said it was unproductive to "look backwards." As it's already been said over and over... DC doesn't hold politicians responsible.

    After Obama and Holder backed off, a bipartisan panel found indisputable evidence that torture occurred. The mainstream news media didn't report it though. The report ironically concluded that the overall US media is incapable of properly handling a discussion on torture because it's large in scope. Viewers of left wing and right wing media get entirely different slants on the same news stories...

    The Bush Administration did not 'shop around' for Holder's opinion or his decision. Holder is also a Democrat hack, not a Republican hack.

    See above, particularly regarding the 'informed' part.

    Sounds like a great movie script. Do I see Tom Hanks in the starring role?

    Thanks for that but I've never hears of the participants nor am aware of their political leanings.
