Do you remember the moral indignation and outrage against enhanced interrogation? It was and is said to be torture, plain and simple.
Well, perhaps it is...
However, how does enhanced interrogation compare to the United States Government sending an unmaned drone to blast "enemies of the state" to smithereens?
I suppose if you are pro-Obama, you will try to cut him a break on this, however think about it...
I know what water-boarding is, however I cannot say exactly what it is like to be water-boarded. Having water poured on your face with the intent to simulate drowning does seem to be like a version of torture. As abhorrent as that technique may be, I am going to go out on a limb and say that water-boarding is preferable to being blown into bits by a guided missile with a large explosive payload.
You see, the Obama Administration openly admits to this strategy and continues to argue on behalf of it. Am I the only one here who is outraged by this unspeakable hyprocrisy?
Don't forget about how liberal activists howled about Bush and his forces rounding up wartime combatents and throwing them in prisons without due process. Bush Attorneys General were treated as true fascists for arguing this position.
How does Bush's tactic compare with Obama raining down death and hellfire on purported enemies of the state, and on whomever else may or may not be in the vicinity? Where is the due process for these individuals? It is a death penalty without due process. And how does that compare to water-boarding?
