More than that

It doesn't just set a "bad precedent" - if the Obama administration refuses to pursue legal action against those who sanctioned torture, they will be violating international law and will become, themselves, complicit in war crimes.

This is where I am divided. I am VERY pleased that we will no longer employ these techniques. I do believe that the "brains" who drafted the language and made the techniques "good policy" should be held accountable, yet I fear the backlash and how it will be so badly twisted by the Hannity and Limbaugh types and drive the Stockholm afflicted crowd even further into insanity and we will even more divided.

What in the hell were they thinking by waterboarding Khalid Shaikh Mohammed 180+ times?! That equates to nothing more than deranged behavior by a pack of knuckle-draggers just as sick as the people bent on destroying us. Violence begets violence! A value that the God fearing, good 'Mericans seem to conveniently forget.

Maybe they should have listened to this -
