    What’s the CIA meant to do? Ask nicely? It’s pathetic how the Left harps on about this stuff. They constantly confuse the good guy and the bad guy. Wankers.

    I’ve never thought that most of the stuff we do rises to the level of torture anyway when you compare it to what goes on in the rest of the world. So we keep somebody awake for three days or whatever-so what. If we can get key information out of some high ranking terrorist by waterboarding him-go for it.

    Worse things happened at your local police station in the 1930’s.

    I think that most of the less enlightened parts of the world,that would be China, Russia and most of the Middle East, finds it difficult to get up off of the floor from laughter.

Well, SAY something...
