You can wordplay all you want, "by releasing the 'torture memos' Obama has made America safer because blah blah blah..."; the fact is now that Obama has done what he has done, independent research groups are already working to figure out not just if Obama has done damage to the US, but how much damage. This could be the equivalent of FDR announcing an impending invasion of France in June, so do not despair about the war. Obama, whether in a moment of cocaine-induced idiocy, has released memos of how the US acquired sensitive information, allowing in a deadly cat-and-mouse game, for the mouse (Al Qaeda et. al.) to catch a glimpse of where they went wrong, what they need to correct, and how they need to reapply themselves. Furthermore, Obama has alienated large amounts of US intelligence, telling them "do what is politically correct or you may be retroactively charged with crimes that were never crimes to begin with." Congress Knew About the Interrogations - WSJ.com Mr. Hoekstra and others are already preparing to rid the US of this scourge Obama. And, really, if it is discovered that US national security has been even slightly hurt by this deliberate policy move there is little recourse that America could take other than to forcibly remove Obama from the office of President. It's not about "on the job training". It's about the fact that never in the history of the US has a President at least willingly damaged the United States' military interests and exploits putting at risk the lives of Americans for sake of politics. I almost feel sorry for Obama, he just seems to me like some stupid kid caught up in a nasty world; I feel sorry for him because this isn't the kind of playground where you go to time out. Obama should be charged with Treason if found to have damaged the United States' military operations in any way.
