Marshall Art has a good post on torture. My $0.02 is that people can have some honest debates about whether waterboarding qualifies as torture. But what is interesting about Obama’s soon-to-backfire political approach of appeasing the far Left is that the more the facts come out the worse the Democrats will look (i.e., those who knew of the waterboarding).
Side note: I find it endlessly interesting that virtually all the people who scream “Oh, the humanity” over waterboarding a few terrorists are equally zealous about advancing unlimited abortion “rights.”
Quick quiz: Would you rather be waterboarded or crushed and dismembered without anesthetic? I’ll take the former.
Barack Obama and the CIA: why does President Pantywaist hate America so badly? — A UK journalist sees what half of America doesn’t.
Obama’s problem is that he does not know who the enemy is. To him, the enemy does not squat in caves in Waziristan, clutching automatic weapons and reciting the more militant verses from the Koran: instead, it sits around at tea parties in Kentucky quoting from the US Constitution. Obama is not at war with terrorists, but with his Republican fellow citizens. He has never abandoned the campaign trail.
. . .
President Pantywaist’s recent world tour, cosying up to all the bad guys, excited the ambitions of America’s enemies. Here, they realised, is a sucker they can really take to the cleaners. His only enemies are fellow Americans.
Albert Mohler on the homosexual agenda — He gets it right: You have to abandon the authority of scripture before following and advancing the homosexual agenda as so many “Christians” do.
Courage is far too rare in many Christian circles. This explains the surrender of so many denominations, seminaries, and churches to the homosexual agenda. But no surrender on this issue would have been possible, if the authority of Scripture had not already been undermined.
