Cutting through the confusion: Few actual tortures took place, apparently, and people who poo-poo the non-torture tortures of wartime prisoners are hard-line about fighting terror. People who make a big deal about all this porno [which most of it is] are softies. So the question is: who does America want to fight terrorists? Hardliners? Or softies? The answer, as week-after-week passes, is obvious. If Bush doesn't cave, this is going to be a mere blip on the radar screen by election day, just another example of who is taking this war seriously, and who is trying to turn us into a useless, pathetic nannystate.

I would agree if times were different. Now, there is such a concerted effort to besmirch the Pres. and his admin. on so many fronts yet he doesn't defend himself. It's getting embarrassing and I am frustrated about it. I don't agree with Bush on most of his domestic policy but I am totally behind him on his foreign policy. I just want the "compassionate conservative" to at least look like he's fighting back.

(My 1.4 cents - It used to be 2 cents, but after taxes - you get the idea.)
