I find it absolutely fascinating that despite going so far as putting an UPDATE to the post explaining I wasn't for Huckabee, that I hated Huckabee, that I think him an idiot, that some numbskull of a commenter would blindly go ahead without reading what I wrote and accuse me of "Climbing aboard the Huck bandwagon."
It takes a special kind of idiocy to do that and I congratulate you Mr. Rasband. You truly are the Clueless Commenter of the Day and are in the running for Cluebat of the Year.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 23.12.2007 @ 20:02
By all reports and leaks that have been reported, the number of prisoners (none at Gitmo, btw) who were subjected to torture (or the "enhanced interrogation techniques) is extremely small and represented the cream of al-Qaeda leadership and people who would necessarily know about potential ops.
Those at Gitmo who were subject to other torture techniques like stress positions, sleep deprivation, and other Geneva convention violations were not authorized by the Administration to do so but carried them out independently.
One can make the argument that all torture carried out everywhere by Americans was the fault of the Administration but I believe that is overstating the case. Clearly, there was torture authorized by the White House and torture carried out by independent commands - out of control MP's and the like. To say it was all authorized is belied by the facts.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 10.12.2007 @ 11:18
Everything you list as aspersions against Fred are just that, aspersions.
That's why I listed them, dolt.
If there's one thing I can't stand, it's an idiot who either can't read or won't read what I post. Which is it for you, ignoramus?
If you read what I wrote, you would realize that it is a slavishly pro-Thompson piece. To ignore the "aspersions" is to ignore reality - something you seem very capable of doing.
You sound like a young man. I would suggest you grow up before you start commenting on politics. Otherwise, you end up making a fool of yourself like you did with your comment above.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 10.12.2007 @ 07:58
Your comments were deleted because you are a fraud and because they insult other commenters.

Your comment was deleted for being outrageously, over the top, ridiculous.
"Conservatives love torture?"
Proof please. And while you're at it, include some proof that Bigfoot exists and that microwave ovens were invented by aliens.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 11.12.2007 @ 09:12
It is against American law to torture prisoners â€“ even terrorists. And American lawâ€™s definition of torture mirrors that of the definition given by the Geneva Convention. The Geneva Convention prohibits the kind of â€œsevere interrogation techniquesâ€ that were used on Zubaydah. Itâ€™s not a question of whether waterboarding isnâ€™t really â€œtortureâ€ because our special forces guys go through it as part of their training. Or other â€œstress techniquesâ€ arenâ€™t really torture because they leave no marks or donâ€™t really distress the prisoner. The law is the law and these special interrogation techniques are in violation of the Geneva Convention and hence, American law.
Are you only mildly retarded or, as I suspect, a full blown drooling, spasming idiot?
Where do I say there is "confusion or a gray area" about torture?
You just can't take "yes" for an answer. Or does the prospect of a conservative agreeing with you cause your tiny brain to explode?Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 7.12.2007 @ 01:22
This would indicate they used techniques that could be construed as illegal:
They were destroyed in part because officers were concerned that tapes documenting controversial interrogation methods could expose agency officials to greater risk of legal jeopardy, several officials said.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 6.12.2007 @ 23:54
ALl those times A.Q. Khan visited and sold them all that nuke material?

I give you a chance and you insult me.
Fine. Don't bother to comment. It's going in the spam folder from now on. I'll never see it.
And btw - I saved your original comment - you know, the one where you threatened to kill me?
(WHO SAYS "the NO! forces were being denied access to the totals", WHO INFORMS THAT? WHO?) I hope you and all media like you JUST F**KING DIE!!!!!!!!
You send me an email or try to communicate with me in any way and this one is going to my local police.
So you see, changing IP addresses won't matter. Your comments are being flushed before I even see them and any email you send will initiate legal action against you.
Now go away and don't bother me again.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 5.12.2007 @ 08:13
The scuffle at CNE headquarters was broadcast live on CNn Int. where the explanation given was that the opposition was being denied its right under law to view the totals.
Apparently, you missed that...Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 5.12.2007 @ 08:07
