Does America really care about Terror Interogations?

    I normally do not post to political message boards, but since the boards I usually are active on don't like political discussions I will post here. I keep seeing stories on the news about Terror Interrogation probes. The premise seems to be that under the Bush administration, laws were broken in regards to the method they used in interrogating terror suspects.

    Regardless of whether laws were broken or not (some probably were), I am wondering if the average American is really passionate about this topic. After all, since September 11th Terrorists have not been high in the popularity charts.

    I am afraid that the Democratic party might be misscalculating this... There are so many topics we could be focusing on, like ciminal acts by Corporate America (Halliburton) that people are more Passionate about.

    Thoughts???

    I personally couldn't care less what they do to them, short of maiming them.

    It's an attempted distraction and I agree, most people I speak with don't care either.

    If one adheres to the Constitution, then one cares.

    Since most Americans are naive and politically stupid.

    I doubt they even are aware of the Terror Interrogation probes.

    Well I for ONE! am up late into the night, NEARLY OBSESSED with how those who interrogated mass murderers, did so...

    I believe that it falls to the US, to project ridiculous standards to protect the 'rights' of our enemies, to strip us of our rights... because, after all the US is strong with TONS of means and the Islamic terrorists are basically ignorant losers, with Masters Degrees and born from affluent families who just 'don't know no better'... So we should give EVERY possible doubt to anyone who is found attacking the US, or joining with those who attack the US... as such is only FAIR...

    OK, then stop supporting big oil and they can go back to eating sand. Pick one.

    So I need to stop supporting oil to recognize the absurd reasoning of those consider themselves rightfully entitled to murder innocent people?

    ROFLMNAO... And this demonstrates, once AGAIN, why these people should not be allowed within 10 miles of a voting booth.

    Actually, I am on the far far right on this one.

    Instead of invading Iraq, I would have clamped down on all oil transactions that had to do with Islamist countries and I would have starved them out. No food. Iran would be ok because they have a lot of arable land. The rest of them would have been SOL and have to go look for another grocery store. Meanwhile at home I would have decriminalized hemp. So we could practice phytoremediation, get more sources for industrial lubricants and fuel and paper/cloth alternatives. I also would have utilized natural gas as a transportation fuel and employed more/every available alternative energy strategies.

    We have all the food. I am exceedingly draconian on this issue.

    I don't think so. Do the homework on the populations and the amount of land available and they can't fill the gap. Not even close.
