    SO is the US military torturing recruits in special units of the Navy, Army, Marines and Air Force? Because many of the training schools some units go through includes water boarding. Is our Commander in Chief allowing US service members to be TORTURED in training? Surely not, right? Obama would never allow that, not as Commander in Chief. Except.....he is allowing it.

    The difference being that SERE training is completely voluntary. Surely you knew that..right?

    The President isn't a King and Republicans wouldn't allow the closure.

    Republicans COULDNT STOP the closure between January 1 2009 and January 1 2011. During that time, Dems held the Presidency, House and Senate. And they did not close it. Can't blame GOP when Dems had control of 3 out of 3.

    And sir, speak of Mr. Obama with a bit of respect. He isn't a king.....yet!

    It's not voluntary if they want to pass and get the job they are seeking.

    So....the question remains, IS our Commander in Chief allowing TORTURE to be a mandatory passage for military members seeking a particular job? Is thise the Soviet Union or North Korea or something? TORTURE being a mandatory passage in seeking a particular job in the military? Is Barack Obama going to keep allowing this torture to continue? Submit to the torture or you dont get the job? Coerced into torture???? Our troops deserve better....right? Mr. Commander in Chief???
