Giving aid and comfort to the enemy is treason. (http://online.wsj.com/article/SB119734098837720381.html?mod=googlenews_wsj)

One certainly may hold as abhorrent the idea of aggressively interrogating any terrorists ever, either for fear of what they might do to our people, as John McCain does, or because one thinks this violates our values. What one may not do — at least not if one wants the system to function — is assent to such a policy in 2002 and then, when the policy is made public, put up the pretense that one is “shocked” and appalled to learn of it.

This is bad faith. Worse, it risks setting in motion the ruin or eventual criminal prosecution of CIA employees who in 2002 did what the Bush Administration, Congress and indeed the nation wanted them to do to protect the American people from another September 11.

It has been widely reported by now that waterboarding was used on only three individuals — Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, who planned the airliner attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon; Abu Zebaydah, an Osama bin Laden confidante captured in Pakistan 2002 and described as a director of al-Qaeda operations; and a third unidentified person. If Speaker Pelosi and her colleagues want the handling of such terrorists conformed to what they call “our values,” then she should define that and put it in an explicit piece of legislation. Then let the Members vote yea or nay, in public, on the record.

But don’t sign off on such a sensitive policy at a moment when the nation’s “values” support it, then later feign revulsion when you can’t take the heat from the loudest in your political constituency. There was a time when politics at least assumed more backbone than that. <hr /></blockquote>

Shame on those who look the other way!

The greatest defect in Bush as a POTUS is that he has allowed a party of sedition to lie through the media with impunity.

San Fran Nan ... and in your case I believe you really don't know.

Wouldn't it be something if one Democrat posted one thread on here exposing a Democrat or one Republican posted a thread exposing a Republican?
I'm so sick of this crap.
You know me, LWW. I'll probably come back. I always do.
But right now I'm so sick of these political " discussions", I think I'll bow out for a while.
This stuff is giving me a frigging headache. /ccboard/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

It's just a matter of facing reality hoss.

You don't see me running around defending illegal activity by either side.

The funny thing here is that no matter what criminal activity you can show the cacophany of B-B-B-B-BUT BOOOOOSH! arises immediately as an excuse.

Myself, I don't care what Clinton or Bush did, if you broke the law you should go to jail.

Untile the moonbats and the wingnuts BOTH take this attitude we will continue to have what we have.

That is true. But I'm going to pass.
BTW, your little byline by Hilary sounds like what
Cheney &amp; Rummy were saying about the Patriot Act.
What was the context of the Hilary quote?

Removing wealth from the producing class to pay for the myriad of programs she has proposed.
