Two things. First of all, apparently waterboarding saved American lives:
Specifically, interrogation with enhanced techniques “led to the discovery of a KSM plot, the ‘Second Wave,’ ‘to use East Asian operatives to crash a hijacked airliner into’ a building in Los Angeles.” KSM later acknowledged before a military commission at Guantanamo Bay that the target was the Library Tower, the tallest building on the West Coast. The memo explains that “information obtained from KSM also led to the capture of Riduan bin Isomuddin, better known as Hambali, and the discovery of the Guraba Cell, a 17-member Jemmah Islamiyah cell tasked with executing the ‘Second Wave.’ ” In other words, without enhanced interrogations, there could be a hole in the ground in Los Angeles to match the one in New York.
So, using knowledge gained from waterboarding some of the lowest dregs of the Earth, lives were saved; the lives of LA liberals, specifically.
President Obama suggested today that it remained a possibility that the Justice Department might bring charges against officials of the Bush administration who devised harsh interrogation policies that some see as torture. …
But to a die-hard leftist, saving American lives isn’t worth pouring water on a terrorist’s nose for thirty seconds. So, do they love terrorists or hate Americans? I know, they claim everything we do to fight terrorism creates more terrorists. But guess what, being weak and ineffectual also creates terrorists. At least our way manages to kill them and stop them.
