Not letting their Kenyan boy off easy, are they?
Now, how outraged do they get over daily practices in Mooseland?
I say let’s turn this “Top Torture Investigator” over to a few imaginative Boy Scout troops.
Get used to it. The UN will say jump and the Obama White House will say how high.

Looks like Obama is an international criminal.
What to do when the “One World Body” gets after the “Liberal Left” in the United States... sit back and pop the popcorn... LOL...
lol....Good luck with your buddies at the UN, Idiot.
Have THEY prosecuted their child rapists yet??? Hmmmm?
Damned if he does, and damned if he doesn’t. The international moonbat brigade will never be satisfied, no matter how much he gives them.
Chrushchev put people into gulags in Siberia, not because they called him idiot, but because they revealed the state secret!
Funny Funny. Just quit writing the checks.
What about these agents? We cannot allow them to prosecute these guys for following orders!!
The left is chomping at the bit for a little political persecution, and I bet 0 will eventually give it to them. What goes around, comes around. 0 and his idiotic minions will find out that their political enemies here at home will not march peacefully off to the reeducation camps.
Since Obama declared it Torture, he trapped himself.
He either has to prosecute Bush and the CIA or declare that it isn’t torture after all.
The irony is stunning, Obama has to surrender a major political point.
Well I’ll tell you this, they try to prosecute those guys I will hide them in my basement. That is the most outrageous thing I have ever heard in my life and considering I have lived under the Obama administration for nearly 100 days thats saying something.
Only if we let it.
