    Obama recently in Asia said that water boarding is still considered torture. So, if we captured the scum OBL we would not have used this methodology? So we shot/killed him to take this Obama policy issue off the table? I'm struggling to understand this inconsistency in message!?

    killing someone puts them out of their misery.
    Waterboarding them scares the heck out of them.

    Hope that clears things up.

    No not quite. Water boarding can yield useful information. I wonder how the Obama policy would've played out if he was captured.

    I was being sarcastic.

    I have no issue with waterboarding.

    I have no issue with the taking out of a senior leader of an enemy who attacked us first.

    The fact that the left does not want to make the enemy suffer the discomfort of feeling like they are drowning, but dont mind making their children orphans is pretty hypocritical if you ask me.

    Most of the time I just shake my head in disbelief when the left tries to explain things or rationalize things when common sense says the total opposite but then I wake up and realize that the left has no common sense. If it is not in a book or on the internet they chose that its not real or rational even though common sense proves that they are wrong.

    Whether we should torture people is one issue (the answer is no, we should not).

    Whether Navy Seals should attempt to capture OBL alive - at potentially greater risk to their own lives - is a different issue. Personally, my opinion is that they shouldn't. It's not worth it.

    Killing is sometimes justified. Torture never is.

    Torture does not yield reliable information. That's why it's not admissible in court. Because information obtained through torture is not reliable.

    perhaps you would be better directed to look at the geneva conventions to explain that.

    but keep up the nice little troll.

    do you rightwingnut twits even know how to start a discussion?

    oh wait... it isn't about discussion; it's about rightwingnut loons high-fiving each other.
