Care to explain why?
Rumsfeld wrote in his book that only three detainees were ever waterboarded and none of the episodes occurred at Gitmo.
I wish that this info had been made public much earlier.
Exactamundo.....along with Agnew, Mandel, etc.....
No Bob just likes throwing hand grenades in the hopes someone pays attention to him
True altura but given a choice between Romney or Newt I would go with Newt. Huge baggage cars and all.
THIS POST deserves it’s own thread!!
By saying water boarding is torture, they are saying we torture our own. I understand that we have used it to prepare our soldiers for what MIGHT happen to them.
You can thank John McCain and Lindsey Graham for that. The Left screamed "torture" and both of them ran around mindlessly regitating it to the media. Anyone who pointed out the facts was shouted down because "Even your own side says it is torture".
Put these talking points together in a list and there’s enough to play BS Bingo. Just keep the list handy so we can check them off every time a Democrat is interviewed.
I think I would as well, but reluctantly.
She is right, they still have a long ways to go. They haven’t completely destroyed America yet.
Pray for America
Yes, he has way too much baggage, and is not electable.
re: the GOP-
“I still haven’t found what I’m looking for” is my mantra lately!
From what I hear/read their entire campaign will be based on playing the race card over and over more severe than ever,possibly even hiring rioters. If Cain got the nod they could kiss all the energy in their campaign good bye.
I just finished watching it. The only thing I would add that Bachmann omitted was about waterboarding. She should have said that we only used it on three high value targets and that we routinely use it on our own troops as part of their training. Waterboarding is not torture.
Agreed, that too. We’ve allowed the media, and Democrats but I repeat myself, to drive the discussion.
Anyone who believes water boarding is unacceptable torture is delusional.
Yes. I dont think Newt would be a good canidate[sic]....The general publics collective memory of him has been poisoned by the media.
The general public's actual collective memory being what it is, Newt could be the next shiny object.
Newt is the problem, not the solution. He is part of the current political class that got us into this situation. Mr. “Green Conservative” will compromise on anything. It is why he supported Dede Scozzafava over a real conservative.
You’re right. It was part of training before but I don’t know if it’s still being done.
For all I know, the DoD has changed that class to reciting the Miranda warnings we are now giving to enemy combatants.
Will do! If you notice a lot of them are the same ones over and over.I’m surprised no race card yet. W0e know its in the works.
