    Obama: U.S. 'crossed a line,' tortured after 9/11 - CNN.com

    (CNN) -- President Barack Obama acknowledged Friday that the United States "crossed a line" and tortured al Qaeda detainees after the 9/11 terror attacks.
    The comments at a White House news conference were the President's strongest on the controversial subject since he came into office denouncing what he described as the Bush years of torturing alleged terrorists, also known as "enhanced interrogation."
    "When we engaged in some of these enhanced interrogation techniques, techniques that I believe and I think any fair-minded person would believe were torture, we crossed a line," Obama said. "And that needs to be ... understood and accepted. And we have to, as a country, take responsibility for that so that hopefully we don't do it again in the future."

    About time our country stopped covering for the abuses of Bush/Cheney

    As far as Obama is concerned, he should join him there. How many lines has he crossed, perchance?

    Obama wouldn't recognize one if they bit him.

    I believe he was more in the affirmation mood than that, I do believe that Oblama fingered Bush....

    He is insecure about his leadership.
    He needs to build himself up by trashing Bush...

    It's to be expected from this guy.

    It really is, it is a classic psychological tell.

    SO why isnt Obama prosecuting Bush era aides who advocated that policy? Torture is illegal, remember?
