Because freedom can't protect itself
Well said. I would also hasten to add that in addition to his most recent confession to torture, the NYT reported on November 18, 2005, that Bush had also confessed to procuring unlawful surveillance, contrary to 50 U.S.C. 1809 and 18 U.S.C. 2.
RULE OF LAW..........look to the Mexican border. just because YOU dont live there, doesnt make it right!
shut up. no one cares. let the man be, he fucked up some terrorists, bro. i wish someone would do that to your sniveling asses.
Obama is continuing these practices and enhancing them further! Both Obama and Bush are guilty. Stop separating left from right and focus on the true atrocity of torture! Both parties are guilty!
impeach the aclu!
#3 gives the answer, I regret.
America cares less about living righteously and more about cheap reliable sources of petroleum. rule of law is too costly, bro.
"i wish someone would do that to your sniveling asses."
That's a good philosophy. Torture anyone who disagrees with you.
Oh and I'm an idiot.

So what is permitted then? Sounds to me that waterboarding is permitted, unless you a limp wristed bitch thaqt works for the ACLU.
Torture is illegal.
Waterboarding is torture.
Waterboarding is illegal.
It can't get any clearer than that.
If we resort to torture we are no better than them.
