CIA DESTROYS TORTURE TAPES

"I don’t write much about the torture issue anymore because it sickens me to have my friends on the right trying to excuse it and it nauseates me when the left moralizes about it"

You make an asinine statement like this and you accuse me of being retarded. Here's a question, if we on the left don't "moralize" about it then who the hell is? This isn't the dilemma you try to make it. The people who authorized this need to be held to account and in this country we do that with our legal system. The comment by newshogger, you blasted with your first post, is completely valid. The rights callous dismissal of V Plame being outed is sickening.

"We can argue – and I have in the past on this site – that the Geneva Convention is ridiculously out of date, moldy in its thinking and laughably naive about men at war and the exigencies of the times."

Utter bullshit. And there is no confusion or gray area about the reported techniques BUSH has sanctioned. They are TORTURE plain and simple and you are a torture apologist with the above "smarmy" posting. If you want to know what torture is ask John McCain.

THE TRIUMPH OF THE PARANOID LEFT

"Nearly two-thirds of Americans believe the federal government had warnings about 9/11 but decided to ignore them, a national survey found."

I see nothing ambiguous about this question. "about 9-11" is sufficiently vague to not suggest the government new the specifics of the 9-11 plot and it's execution.

On the other hand, I think there was a plot by the bushies to instill in the American people the idea that Saddam Hussein was part and parcel to the 9-11 attack. When the Iraq war started roughly three-fourths of Americans thought Hussein was in on 9-11. That number has come down some, but remains high for republicans.
