    What choice did he have? Once he made it public that he will not seek the persecution of our agents, the trial of the former regime began.

    In fact, it is pretty obvious why that was made public--to garner popular attention!!

    I think it's good too. But I want it all. From start to finish.. Don't protect anybody from anything. Let's get it all out there. And let's talk about it for four years. That should do it. Paint America as evil for four years.. That's a good thing.. The terrorists will love ya's for it and laugh at yer DUmbazzes too.

    Typical willow remark. Full of sound and cat shit signifying nothing.:cuckoo:

    If they broke the law, they broke the law. The country didn't. They did. This has nothing to do with America being evil, it has to do with finding out if some Americans broke the law when they were in charg.e

    No, lest just pretend it didn't happen.

    Go after Clinto for eight years on whitewater, but forget the fucking torture.

    Morons.

    We the people are the country asshole. The country was attacked on 9-11. These Americans did what they had to do to prevent that. Now it remains to be seen if they broke the law. Or, don't you Democwat assholes believe in the concept of "innocent until proven guilty" Well doyahuh?

    Before 9/11, waterboarding was llegal and outlawed by the army manual of standards. What changed? What gave the Bush people to drop the legal standards of this country? Bush, the "decider", took it upon himself to decide what torture is, forgetting 200+ years of legal opinions and standards.

    We lowered our standards to those of the terrorist. As for the arugument that we stopped attacks due to this torture, how do you prove that? Would some other form of interrogation gotten us the same information? How many desperate lies were spilled by those being tortured?

    If anyone arguably broke the law regarding torture, they should be indicted, prosecuted and let a court of law determine their guilt or innocence. As far as I am concerned, that could be up to and including the president. Perhaps he should have pardoned himself before he left office!

    why would you say that? Bush missed the chance to pardon himself...Obama still has a whole lot of time to do that for HIMself.

    moron.
