    First place, Obama is on your side on this one. The Obama administration has held this up.

    The America haters are the one's that pissed on the Constitution in stepping away from everything America and Americans have stood for two centuries. Somehow, our previous "leaders" did not believe enough in America and in American values. They had no faith that our system of justice was strong enough to work in all circumstances. They were weak.

    America is now standing up for American values of truth and justice in exposing the weakness and sins of prior administrations. This is a proud day for true Americans. We are standing unafraid of the truth and unafraid to admit and take the consequences of our own prior failings.

BO is backing the release of this report. Since he came out and stated we tortured some folks. Then other countries Intel services stated this will cause more violence and death to take place. This was all reported back to BO. Yet he and the Democrats are all for it.

    The Republicans are disputing this report and will come out with their own report. Feinstein said she would go ahead with the release. Even after Kerry asked her to hold off with the timing.

    What say ye?


    Those who want to do evil things to America and Americans don't need this report for an excuse.

    Read the news.

    Those who make mistakes that harm others need to admit their mistakes and do all that they can to correct them.

For example, I reject the current effort by the Administration in the White House, and in Congress to govern through super agencies like the EPA and others.

    When it comes to methods used in combat/conflict, I am less inclined to be concerned. Frankly, I would even consider using exactly the same methods used by our enemies, but then again, we are not holdouts from the evolutionary process, as many people in these areas of conflict clearly are.
    This post lacks substance.

    I know first hand that just because you're fighting monsters doesn't mean you have to become one. You can not quantify any kind of benefit we've received from torture. It's against basic human rights and international law, so those who are responsible should be held responsible.

    It's that simple. If you torture a prisoner and deny him a trial, don't act surprised when everyone thinks you're an asshole. Americans have spoken and they don't want torture done in their name. If you'd like the program to be restarted write your congressman.

    The blame belongs on the G.W. Bush mis-administration and that's where history will place it.

    The whole "torture" program was an abomination. We should all be ashamed of our collective hypocrisy. We should be praying, at this time, for understanding and mercy and the wisdom that we have learned from our misguided past. Its our fault; its time to tell the truth and deal with the consequences like the brave Americans we are suppose to be.

    I saw this somewhere, it seems fitting: "Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, make a different choice."


    Yes I do know the saying.....but then those of PC and touchy feely world. Still don't like the choice of taking no prisoners.

    After not quite six years of what the GOP has done with obstruction with DEMs staying mum after the last decade, the gloves are off.
    First immigration, now the torture report, and hopefully Limbaugh gets his wish to shut down the government .

    4,500 soldiers were killed by other lies of Cheney/Bush.
    Not to mention the tens of thousands of maimed Veterans from last decade, overloading the VA system .

    Heya SN. Again, the other concern are for those who work with us. As well as other intelligence from other countries.
