    Yeah, yeah. But Bush is omnipotent, you see. That's why he's been able to deftly trick everyone up till now. So how can anyone hope to do anything about it? I mean - be reasonable here.

    this is the thing. One of the few things Americans agree on is we want enemy combatates tortured. I mean, we don't admit it. But, if it means getting information to end the war and/or prevent attacks, we don't care.

    Do it - get the info you need - don't tell us about it. That's the American motto.

    I'd rather you not speak on my behalf. I'm more than capable of doing so.

    Yeah, I'm amazed that Gitmo/Abu Gharib/torture/indefinite detainment/black sites keep rolling in, and still the press assume that another little story is suddenly going to awaken Americans to what's going on.

    lol - thats funny.

    I actually had a friend that I greatly trust give me some stories this weekend from legitimate news outlets about the toture cases. And I can see where there is a rule of law issue here.
    At the same time, Bush's approval ratings are around 25%, so there's clearly no one standing up for Bush on this. Its just that as a whole nobody cares. Well - I mean you do, but black, white, democrat, republican.....you can't point to a group of people. Generally speaking, we want a Jack Bauer.

    ..Too bad you don't exist only in a fictional TV- series that runs on FOX.

    Of course - it's not about getting the information, is it - it's about revenge. Just like the Twin Towers were seen as an attack on all things american, and a wound on the national ego - it's about general national revenge towards an epic, non- descript enemy.
