  • I thought this administration wanted to look forward? Is this also why our POTUS wants to be exempt from future prosecution along with expanding the Patriot Act?

  • Excuse me anon but I am not a representative of the Obama admin and will speak out against them if they continue the practice and/or expand the PA.

  • Waterboarding is ok for military officers and naval pilots and cadets at VMI and the Citadel. Magically they are all still alive.

  • Water-boarding is not OK. Same goes to using prisoners phobias, like when some prisoners are afraid of dogs or darkness .

    i agree our soldiers are getting worse treatment then that if they become prisoners of war. i think some people need to start reading history books and keeping up with current events more often...
