Skip to comments.'Factor' Debate Over Coerced Interrogation (Rumsfeld Later Denies Lies of Colmes)
Posted on 05/04/2011 8:42:42 AM PDT by Sneakyuser
During this heated discussion Alan Colmes says, and has been saying for years, that Enhanced Interregation Techniques (EIT) yield nothing. He also states that Donald Rumsfeld confirms this. An hour later on Hannity, Rumsfeld says that just is not true.

Colmes is the most reliably knee-jerk of all the liberal commentators. He musts have a wire from his knee that opens and closes his mouth.
Then again, who really cares what Colmes or Ted Baxter really thinks about anything.
My favorite part of the clip is when Colmes says “Not this is not ideology, I’m not being ideoligical!”
WTH cares what Alan Colmes thinks?
And why does BOR pay this clown for political “commentary”? He is a hack and offers no insight whatsoever.
BOR is a pinhead for using hacks as political commentators.
I thought that was pretty interesting and glad Bill stuck to his guns. I wouldn’t say Alan was lying, I don’t think he’s a liar, I think he’s like so many other liberals, in complete denial. Oh wait, denial is lying..ha, what’ya know.
Why FOX retains Colmes is hard to understand. He is one vile person constantly lying and using the typical liberal tactic of speaking at 600 words per minute so you cannot get a word in edgewise.
A left leaning opinion is one thing but to constantly spout lies so as to defend your position is so Saul Alinski (EDBUH eternal damnation be upon him)
it was quite an exchange
Cro’s sister in law looked pretty nervous...
O’Butthead’s eyes just kept a narrowing
one of his “tells” he’s really getting pissed
So because some hack Commie Pinko keeps saying the same lie, it must be true? BS. After Pete King exposed this, the lefts argument is now destroyed. Now Colmes is reduced to lying about Rummy's comments. That should really bolster his argument. I love that after Ted Baxter asked Rummy to come on his show to refute the claims, he goes on Hannity to do it. Screw you BOR you Obummer apologist.
Does he tingle in his leg whenever “The Divine One” speaks?
What Rumsfeld had said was waterboarding didn’t happen at Gitmo.
And it didn’t.
It happened in foreign prisons.
I say waterboard em all.
Alan Colmes is a pretty good barometer of everything that is wrong with America. I don’t think I’ve ever heard the man say anything remotely correct.
Alan Colmes looks like Gollum.
Alan Colmes is always on with his sister in law Monica Crowley (Wife’s sister).
His wife is a real ditz who laughs at the end of every sentence. They make a great couple.
I’d love to have dinner with the bunch. I’d laugh my ass off.
Why FOX retains O’Blowhard is hard to understand.
This has both video clips of first Colmes lying on O’Reilly and then Rumsfeld on Hannity refuting Colmes.
Colmes is to O’Reilly what Michael Knisley was to Pat Buchanan on the old Crossfire show—a non-threatening liberal who serves as a punching bag.
The same reason BOR, Hannity and Beck put the clown Sharpton on. I turn each and every one of them off when they give the likes of Sharpton valuable airtime.
One thing that I have never understood about that argument is that, if you have someone in custody, interrogate them, and they give you false information.... Isn’t the knowledge that you will come back and continue to torture them when their lies are found out enough to ensure you will get good intel? Might not work with everyone, but I would think the fear of being tirtured again would be enough.
I agree %100. The other factor never brought up is that there is not just one guy we are interrogating. We had a bunch of these guys who we would extract info from and compare it to the other info we already had to see if it truthful. There are solid ways to check to see if the info is solid or not. I think that is why the left has never won on this issue with the public. Now the left will have to come up with more lies to keep this up.
DOn’t care a whit what Colmes or O’Reilly think about anything. As far as I’m concerned O’Reilly is a typical media closed liberal who masquerades as a conservative for the income it provides. He’s as phony as Dennis Miller, both of whom should never be trusted. They’ve both found a trough from which to make money; otherwise, we’d never be hearing from them.
I understand OBL was accidentally shot while the SEALs were trying to put a pair of underwear on his head.
Why FOX retains OBlowhard is hard to understand.
BOR has ratings that are #1 while colmes can't draw flies.
FOX keeps colmes on retainer, he gets $100/week and is worth every penny.
Yea, that Priest seriously annoyed me. Bernie made some really good points. That priest was seriously wrong. If he would read and study his bible and spend some quality time with God, actually asking Him things, he’d know that. The 6th commandment says, thou shall not murder, in the Hebrew text. Not thou shall not kill.
Will read later. Anything by Heather McDonald is worth reading.
In any case, despite the emotion, it was a frustrating segment. Of course, much of the O'Reilly Factor is that way. He is no conservative, tries too hard to be neutral and thinks he far more intelligent than he really is. O'Reilly doesn't have a clue about economics and spouts nonsense, always with a belligerence that ignorance often carries. His recent discussion on the existence of hell with Rev. Franklin Graham (Billy Graham's middle-aged son) was embarrassing for Bill as it clearly demonstrated O'Reilly's ignorance of biblical scripture and his apparently secular conceptions of same. However, 'The Factor' does have some interesting guests. Dennis Miller is always entertaining and while not a hardcore conservative, Miller is a refreshingly intelligent entertainer who seems to realize the fallacies that many liberal positions are built on, and he has rejected them. Great vocabulary and his use of cultural tokens to illustrate his position on any given subject is always interesting. On the opposite side of that coin, Fox's use of the despicable 'Reverend' Al Sharpton is highly offensive. Not only is Sharpton a blowhard equal to O'Reilly, he is a race hustler with a long, sordid record of using race to play on 'white guilt', gaining money and notoriety. I won't watch the fool.
I know that was a really dumb statement, don’t judge people, you leave that up to God. Foolish, gutless, unrighteous, unthinking, we judge people every day. The bible doesn’t say, don’t judge. It says be careful how you judge. Because they way you judge, is the way you will be judged. So I suppose they think by not judging they won’t be judged or won’t be judged harshly themselves. But, and it’s a big BUT, God is a righteous God and He hates all unrighteousness. So if we don’t judge people like Osama then we are just as evil in God’s eyes. Because we have allowed evil to flourish, by not condemning it, by not punishing it.
I'm surprised to see any Freeper defend Bill O’Blowhard after he tried to portray Free Republic as a extremist hate site after finding a couple of questionable posts amongst thousands. Hey O'Reilly how about putting as much research into Obama's birth certificate if you know the difference.
As far as ratings it's the time slot and the alternatives not that former INSIDE EDITION host. The only time I'll watch his show is when a guest is hosting. They probably get higher ratings than that mental midget.
Well they do have his sister in-law setting next to him to tell home he is stupid. It is entertainment people, the Bloviator is all about ratings nothing else. He has the twin twits along with his soft porn, and Hoover who is oh so modern.
That same Bill that can’t bring himself to say the name Jesus, instead referring to the deity? That Bill is holding up for Catholics? The same Bill that grills Franklin Graham trying to pull a Larry King and ask him to deny his Savior? That Bill?
