    When any country (Including the USA.) violates international agreements that it has signed and tortures people it has crossed a red line.

    And it shouldn't be surprised when other nations condemn its actions.


    When other Nations can prove they don't do the same thing.....then they can talk. Until then, the best thing they can do.....is shut their pie holes. Both ends of them.

    Well, that's exactly what they are doing. What people on the Right should do.....is swamp the MS Media, and I do mean swamp them with calls telling them to be accurate in their reporting or suffer the consequences.

    This is not a Senate Committee Report......It is the One Sided Democrat Report. So that's what it should be reported as. The one sided Senate Intel Report from the Democrats.

    The report by the Democrats. The Demos investigation. Reported as, this is how the Demos do things. Their usual.

    Also we now have been shown by the Left they would do whatever it takes to cause harm to the country, when they have lost power and now have to take the backseat. That they would rather have Americans face more Risks of Harm and Danger all due to their politics from their party.

    Lets not forget that point when showing the MS Media where they actually are on the food chain.

    Then America needs to STFU about being morally superior, being exceptional, or being the 'shining city on a hill'.

    Given the challenges that the US administrations have had with both the Karzai and the al-Maliki government, if these are really the US installed government, I think the US should have chosen more wisely.

    Suffice it to say that in both cases it was done by vote, and not installed by the US.
    IIRC, Bush had a timeline in which the Iraqis had to follow.

    The US doesn't run around talking about being morally Superior.....except when the left has power. Maybe you should tell ALL those in your Party. Never to discuss morals and values. Especially since most the left has a problem with ethics while not having any Real Heart.

    Yes, that would be the majority of the left. Weakness defined!!!!!

    I'm not a Democrat, or even an American, and I'll put my morals and values up against yours any day. I don't need 2000 year old book to tell me the difference between right and wrong, and I don't need Dick Cheney to tell me what constitutes torture.

    That's why you would lose.

    But you did need a one sided Democrat Report to start feeling all spiffy like, huh?

    I haven't commented on the report, only the known use of torture authorized by the Bush Administration. You defend that, you lose the 'morals and values' argument.

    Seems none of you had much to say when Bush stopped most of the Harsh tactics that were being used Under the Clinton Administration.

    Now how did that BS happen?

    What you can't figure out what a party's political playing looks like?

    Do you ever get tired of blaming Clinton for Bush's use of torture, or Bush's decision to invade Iraq? Have some accountability. Stand up for your principles, such as they are.

    Besides which, I have never defended Clinton or his administration. So you hitting the 'Clinton Did It!' button whenever you're being pressed doesn't work on me.
