Maybe Obama can explain why some lawyers under the Bush administration are still awaiting for Eric Holden to go after them for Water Boarding...


Every one against Water Boarding...please explain why Water Boarding is worst than shooting a terrorist through the head is so much better...

Yes, shooting the leader of a nation or group you are at war with is legal and yes, waterboarding is torture and is illegal. American Soli=diers have been Courts Martialled for it and we tried germans and Japanese for it. So you are correct.

I think using sock-puppets would be effective during interrogation and that we should have knocked OBL out with a bouquet of flowers rather than kill him. Signed "Moon-Unit" Bulldawg82.

Bin Laden was a known terrorist leader who not only planned but also financed successful terrorist operations all over the world. He declared war on the U.S.A. which made him a legal target. The policy of water boarding could be applied to anyone regardless of any known act against the U.S. other than looking Muslim and it was/still is an illegal policy.

Soldiers are forbidden from mistreating or interrogating prisoners, which is why they were court martialed in the past for doing so.

Torture is illegal. Killing your enemy that you've been fighting against for a decade, and having spent over a trillion dollars isn't. Unless, you're out to prove that every soldier who has killed terrorist(s), and every politician and person who has supported the wars beginning in 2001, has engaged in illegal activity, and must be prosecuted? Then we may have something to discuss here.

It's for the all-knowing state to decide morality.
