    If the Bush sdministration used waterboarding to try to gain evidence that Iraq and 911 were related, that is illegal. They were using torture for political purposes. Perhaps Obama won't do anything about it but there are organizations out there that will.

    I look for more to come out in the weeks ahead, once the GOP gets over its fascination with Nancy "they lied to me" Pelosi. Put her and Newt into a boat and sail them past Somalia until they are hijacked.

    I am sure Bush and Cheney are shaking in their boots about these "organizations."

    I also saw on the Rachel Maddow show that they possibly tortured EVEN BEFORE they legally wrote up the enhanced interrogation techniques and that the guy interogating had to get permission every time he did use it and he got permission from Alberto Gonzales and Gonzalez was not in the justice dept then, only president bush's personal attorney.

    If this also turns out to be true, then HOUSTON we've got a problem.

    Do what?

    Interrogating someone to determine if there is a link between Iraq and 911, is or would have been 'illegal'?


    ROFL! Just what legal principle would be @ play here?

    Understand, I'm not looking for a statute, although feel free to cite one; I just want you to explain WHY it would be illegal...

    They weren't 'torturing' anyone... but they did induce a great deal of stress against individuals who were reasonably known to have committed autrocities against massive numbers of innocent people... and that stress was induced to cull information out of those individuals for the purposes of SAVING INNOCENT PEOPLE WHO WERE REASONABLY BELIEVED TO BE TARGETED FOR FURTHER ATTROCITIES... and that is ALL POLITICAL... WAR is a function of POLITICS... DUMBASS!

    LOL... Isn't it AMAZING how these 'strong feelings' are so readily advanced... and how difficult it seems to defend them...
