Seraphic Secret reminds us what real torture is (scroll down for a link to information on the Al-Qaeda torture manual). Water-boarding and a fuzzy bug in the ear seem like acceptable practices to me when you’re talking about trying to get life-and-death information out of evil men who think nothing of slaughtering thousands of innocents. Perhaps the most revolting thing about the posturing on this subject by Obama and the Democrats is the likelihood that most of them don’t really give a damn about the moral aspects of torture at all; this is just another club with which to beat up on George Bush and to gain political advantage.
A word of advice, Preshizzle: if you’re investing all this energy in undermining Bush and, by extension, the Republican Party, in an effort to make your own regime look good by comparison, then, based on what I’ve seen in your first 100 days, you’ve got a mighty long way to go.
BTW, if you think water-boarding is bad, check out these new enhanced interrogation techniques devised by our Obamamified CIA. (H/T: Villainous Company).
