Despite what you've seen on TV, torture is really only good at one thing: eliciting false confessions. Indeed, Bush-era torture techniques, we now know, were cold-bloodedly modeled after methods used by Chinese Communists to extract confessions from captured U.S. servicemen that they could then use for propaganda during the Korean War.

I mean if one had respect for american military personnel who had suffered under the brutal onslught of Actual Real World Communist, then there might be an issue here.

If folks felt that there was some reason to be in some way different from Actual Real World Communists, then there might be an issue here.

But this is the world after the whole world changed on 09/11.....

So what is the problem here?

Everyone KNEW that Bushie and his friends were all a bunch of radical hard leftist dirt worshipping tree hugging liberals in lock step with their Peking Paymasters.....

So what is the problem???
