    The President today admited that the U.S. maintains SECRET PRISONS where "alternative" interrogation tactics are used.


    Secret prisons, warrantless searches, revocations of citizenship w/o due process, "alternative interrogation techniques" - WHAT F'ING COUNTRY DOES THIS SOUND LIKE TO YOU?

    Too bad you aren't in one. That alone would justify its existence.

    you know you might get better response if you actually backed up your claims. whats your source for these secret prisons? And if they are so secret why do you know about them?

    It sounds to me like a country that needs fewer conspiracy theorist doomsayers. Tell me, Spidey, what have you been taking recently, cause I want some.

    Secret Prisons - ZOMG, SECERTS R TEH BAD!!!1111!!!!!ONE!! BLAM TEH BUHS CUZ HES A DUMAS AND TRATER!!!!!!! It's kinda hard to break a friend out of a secret prison, comprende?

    Alternative interrogation - Doesn't mean torture. Maybe it's unsavory, but until I know what he means by 'alternative,' I'm not inclined to assume the worst.

    Revocation of Citizenship - I never saw where there was no due process. Being seen in combat operations against the United States military on foreign soil constitutes an automatic revocation of citizenship, as it's an act of war.

    That would NEVER happen if John F-ing Kerry were president!

    Of course, the Empire State Building would be gone because of the latest string of terrorist bombings, but hey! We'd be free people!

    Of course, the Dow Jones Industrial Average would be losing 1000 points a week because the world felt that American wasn't a safe place to invest any longer, but hey! Michael Moore would be happy!

    Of course, if you used a plane to go anywhere, there would be a significant chance that you wouldn't arrive at your destination, but hey! Secretary of Defense (actually she would be Secretary of Peace) Cindy Shehan will be on the case!

    Of course, half of the country would be under Sharia Law, but hey! We will be open minded and tolerant!

    Of course, the United Nations will be running the country and people will be living in perpetual fear, but hey! We will all know that would be George Bush's fault.

    Yes sir, what a great place America would be if John F-ing Kerry were president and Spiderman Tubapants were his advisor!

    I am betting it wont be long before the EU is screaming about international courts and all that. The libs will be right there with them and behind both will be a bunch of laughing terrorists.

    Assuming for a moment that this is true (I surely hope that it is), can you name any US citizens that are in these prisons? Or are you attempting to claim Constitutional rights on foreign enemies?

    Or, if it is Geneva Convention issues you are concerned with, can you cite a clause where we must advertise the location of a prison?
