How short American memories are: If one looks back at 9/11, one will remember that there were 20 Al Queda terrorists but only 19 were involved in the attack. Why? Because we had one of them in custody at least 2 weeks prior to the attack. Suspicion surrounded this individual terrorist because he was taking flying lessons & only wanted to learn how to steer the plane, & was not in the least interested in take-off's & landings. Obama, yesterday signed an executive order to "stop" harsh interrogation tactics, including waterboarding against terrorist suspects. Isn't obvious to everyone on this board that if our agencies would have used "harsher" interrogation tactics on the 20th Al Queda terrorist we may have been able to save 3000 American lives & prevent 2 ensuing wars? This same senario could indeed happen to Obama--yet he signed an executive order to stop "harsh" interrogation tactics. Yet at the same time, Obama knows that there are terrorists determined to attack this country in our homeland & abroad. If innocents die in this country or abroad because of this new executive order, so will the Obama Presidency.
