The Last Post on 'Waterboarding"

For awhile I have been trying to compose a post about "waterboarding" as torture and America's use of it.

To my dismay it has become very long and very involved. I like and appreciate my readers far too much to subject them to it.

Here are far shorter, and very correct, examples of better writing.

Dan McLaughlin at RedState has
"Next time the United States captures some hardened, mass-murdering terrorists, the CIA should tell President Obama that we captured some unborn children, and he’ll let them do whatever they want."
Please read the rest.

Kyle-Anne Shiver at American Thinker
"In other words, Barry Honey, now that I've read the stringent limits under which our CIA folks were forced to operate in the aftermath of 9/11, I'm actually quite stunned that there was such a degree of restraint. The memos actually serve to demonstrate America's exemplary high standards in the realm of dealings with our attackers, not the reverse, as has been put forward by Democrats for the past 8 years."
Please read the rest.

Now, please, stop using lame "End justifies the means", BS arguments, and discuss real world problems and solutions in an adult manner.
