"A new Washington Post/ABC News poll finds that Americans, by a 59-31% margin, believe that CIA “treatment of suspected terrorists” in detention was justified. A plurality deemed that “treatment” to be “torture,” by a 49-38% margin.

Remarkably, the gap between torture supporters and opponents widens between voters who are Christian and those who are not religious."

Your point being that men ought to be able to exert their power and influence over women as was done in the past and not be held accountable.

Holding America to its ideals, laws, and principles is now called "anti-Americanism". Got it.

I want America to be exceptionally good; you do not.

Who's really anti-America?

Answer the question - why was George Washington wrong?

Sorry, SWF, but the Chicxulub impactor is thought to have been at least 10,000m in diameter and didn't cause "global destruction", whatever that means. Yes, it was a mass extinction event, but that's not the same thing.

Yes or no.

You're demanding that our captives be tortured, and you call me unconcerned about their welfare?

Hypocrite much? Always, perhaps?

Way more than 3000 innocent people have died because of the Bush/Cheney neocon cabal War on Iraq disaster; does that mean we get to torture those "beyond- brutal savages [...] who were instrumental"?

In what situations does the UN Convention on Torture (signed by Saint Reagan in 1988) allow torture? Ideas?

The morality or not of Obama's drone program is irrelevant to a discussion of the immorality and illegality of the Bush/Cheney torture program.

Hey DC mods - when are the right-wing astrotrolls going to be held to the same arbitrary and unevenly-enforced rules as us locals who actually live in Boulder and strongly disagree with their larval-fascist opinions?

Would you want an American captive subject to the same torture? Yes or no.

We have no problem doing great trade with China, and the right certainly doesn't say much of anything about China's far more atrocious violations of human rights.
