    The problem with this line of thinking is that it applies logic and common sense; neither of which is allowed to detract from the out-of-context crap dribbled out by the left.

    If it was anyone other than Krauthammer, I almost certainly wouldn't have taken the time to read all 6 pages. But his opinions are well worth the read.

    Imagine that, K made it through a two page article on torture without invoking the Geneva Convention or the International Humanitarian Rights laws. He does make a Freudian slip by stating that terrorists are noncombatants that the Geneva Convention does not apply to, and turns around and calls it a War on Terror. During WWII these same combatants terrorized the civilian life with bombs in the market place, booby traps, ambushes, etc. Was Hitler within his rights to torture these American troops?

    It is also completely asinine to say Al-Qaeda is not a military unit. It is a World Wide organization of combatants, and a uniform does not a "military unit" make. They are trained, armed, organized, and apparently better equipped than the US military for fighting in the ME, and they have a flag. Next K will be telling us the civil "War" was not a real military operation because some troops didn't have uniforms. The same goes for the Vietnam War.

    As to torture, why argue the point. You are either a human or an animal.
