    amnesty international filed today:

    US must begin criminal investigation of torture following Bush admission

    Republican congressman: I have ‘no hesitation whatsoever’ in probing Bush for torture:

    Republican congressman: I have ‘no hesitation whatsoever’ in probing Bush for torture | Raw Story

    Not that a former president will ever be dealt real justice, but making sure his legacy of torture and hatred of the constitution stays alive is the least we can do

    Amnesty International can go fuck themselves. The Waterboarding stopped terror attacks. Works for me.

    President Bush's main problem is the same problem most conservatives have..

    They've never really read the United States Constitution.

    Rather than read some wiki shit, I think I'll go with what one of the victims from the 7/7 bombings said on the subject of waterboarding. He said, basically, if waterboarding could have stopped his wife dying in that horror, he sees no reason why not.

    I understand why people dislike it, but the facts are that it worked. And it continues to work. You don't win against extremists by being nice. You win by using whatever mean necessary to destroy them.
