    If this is what Bush/Cheney our moral guides brought US to, do you still defend torture?

    Bullshit, Why is Cheney now trying to cover his ass like he is on all the interviews.

    They went farther than we have ever gone before. But then they did say the Geneva convention was quaint.

    The right will live with this for a long time even as they try and deny it.

    And you didn't answer if it okay to torture a child to get the parent to talk.


    Just wondering how far some will go to relieve their cognitive dissonance.

    If any of this is true, then the entire bush administration, everyone that even knew this was happening, deserves to go to jail in public disgrace for the rest of their lives. This is sickening, disgusting, repulsive.

    Anyone who defends these actions should feel ashamed of themselves.

    Since when did the CIA have to open it's books for review? Who started this?

    Torture was around long before Cheney or Bush. Facts are more like it was not opened to public scrutiny. That does not mean it meets approval with the public it means it was not previously open for discussion.

    As the DEMS say, "MOVE ON". We have a lot more important issues to deal with than what is already in the past.

    For future reference, "No torture" means "no torture". From what I am reading it is okay to kill the enemy but you cannot use "enhanced" means to get info from them. Nor may you keep them locked up to keep them from trying to kill your people.
