WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama says in the immediate aftermath of 9/11, the United States did things that were wrong and crossed the line. He says, quote, "we tortured some folks."

Obama is commenting on a Senate investigation into the CIA's interrogation techniques. A report on that investigation's results is expected to be released in the coming weeks.

So if his girls were to be killed and the only way he could secure their safety is by torturing someone then I guess he wouldn’t .

This idiot has no clue about how to be Presidential or even have a clue on how to be a leader. Saying that though when the idiots and the media got him elected then I suppose they were never concerned he;s never had a proper job in his life or even ran a hot dog stand.

Some folks? He tortures “the folks” when he talks. After 9-11 we probably tortured some terrorists.

Obama is digging his own grave.

He lives in an echo chamber of incompetent ideologues, sycophants and flatters who let him play to the 20% of the population who are rabid supporters of an issue and ignore the remaining 80% of the people who are opposed, and often very strongly opposed.

Not a recipe for success when your overall disapproval level is at 55% and 35-40% favor impeachment and removal from office.

"Now you have to prosecute or pardon."

Righto! Give us the names of the "torturers" you're referring to, you imbecile.

Kinda like you said aforehand in a public speech about the IRS...."not even a smidgeon of corruption".

The Evil Won seems to have a disposition to judge and announce things a teeny bit too early and sometimes too late, doesn't he!

Let's pose a simple question to Obama and the White House staff and the Obama press:

Would you rather (A) undergo waterboarding or (B) be blown up by a drone?

Obama just blows 'em up because he doesn't want to bother with the problems of dealing with irregular POW's. Ironically, Bush was in SOME ways softer on the enemy than Obama.

Good Lord!

According to Obama and like-minded individuals, terrorists are folks. Yet, Lois Lerner has no problem calling conservative folks “terrorists”.

I must say this at least once a day, but we’re so screwed. So very screwed. (shaking my head)

Oh, yeah -we are going to be dealing with chaos and destruction thus guy has wrought for at least the next generation.

Given a choice between being waterboarded and listening to 0bama speak I’d take waterboarding 10 times out of 10.

Obama is torturing 319 million Americans by being the most idiotic, weakest, most “inappropriate” (to use a libtard weasel word) POTUS in history. Every day it’s another OMG, when will it end?

How many days left? We should have a countdown thread.

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed is "folks"?

He was the mastermind behind 9/11, a murderer and Obama includes him in "folks"?

Appalling.

I am a tortured taxpayer forced to pay for all kinds of benefits to people who HATE me. Mosques built on taxpayer dollars. Guns and many other deadly weapons given to radical Muslims and Mexican drug cartels. Benefit after benefit to illegal aliens who hold me in contempt and who are happy to murder, rape, steal from me. I am forced to listen to political correctness designed to destroy my way of life. HELP! I am being tor-tuurred!!!!!

Posting of the day! reminds me of Jesse Ventura thinking that a small phrase in a book which did NOT NAME HIM, somehow damaged his good reputation - which was already damaged beyond redemption by his own actions.
