    the "experts" at Justice who were there because idealogy, not competence, ignored the warnings of experienced military lawyers.

    This is an unnecessary problem for the US. Should not have happened. Now we have to deal with this repeating problem for years to come.

    " Son, we live in a world that has walls, and those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. Whose gonna do it? You? You, Lt. Weinburg? I have a greater responsibility than you could possibly fathom. You weep for Santiago, and you curse the marines. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know. That Santiago's death, while tragic, probably saved lives. And that my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives. You don't want the truth because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that wall, you need me on that wall. We use words like honor, code, loyalty. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather you just said thank you, and went on your way, Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a weapon, and stand a post. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you are entitled to. "

    Mr. Mora, ANOTHER, in a long line of "retiring" military, or government workers, that are "coming clean", P-L-E-A-S-E.

    The bleedin heart liberals are rattling the bushes for these people.

    Why do they wait till retirement, do they think it makes them MORE believable?

    The UNITED STATES MILITARY, does NOT torture POW`S, terrorist on the other hand, might fine their stay a little "trying" shall we say.

    I don't think he's a lib. He's the legal general counsel for the red-state, conservative Wal-mart. I'm sure he's a die hard lib, gimee a break, your slanders are getting tired and pathetic now.

    I think he was right to warn officials based on what Naval intelligence officers were saying.

    I'd believe my Naval intelligence officers anyday over some idiot apointee like John Yoo or Gonzales.

    I wish are war veteran in the V.A. were treated as well as some of these terrorist we have in Guantanamo Bay and Abu Ghraib. But no, we do it different to our veterans. We just raise the price of their insurance premiums and tell them to suck it up. If it were up to me. All veterans with 20 years or more service to this country would receive life time medical and dental at state of the art facilities to their choosing at no charge.

    Excuse me, I didn`t call HIM a lib, I said he was recruited by the liberal`s, pay attention.

    Oh course he was right to "warn", it was his job after all, jeeezzzzz. It`s all this AFTER THE FACT stuff I`ve taken issue with, and ALWAYS will.

    Believe who you will, just as I shall.
