Torture (Echo) Chamber


I hate to make excuses, but I've been a little busy lately and therefore haven't bothered trying to delve into the Torture Memos issue.

Luckily, I can outsource the whole thing to The Daily Show, who, as usual, hits it out of the park on every point.

Saw this bit from Canada "live", last night. Could not believe it. Stunning. Trenchant stuff.

I bet that, in some years, there will be classes offered on the Stewart-Colbert punditry of these times, on its countervailing effects on Faux News, etc.

He, once again, hit the nail(s) on the head. Brilliant!

I don't understand why we should take away the tools that are necessary to stop future terrorist attacks. I'm not joking here. This is serious and that's why people like me and Glenn Beck fear for the future of this great nation and her allies.

Since Mr. Hussein Obama has taken away those tools from our vital intelligence and military security apparatus, we are in extreme danger.

If we follow this common-sense flowchart, all of you Secular Progressives will find that our current leaders in the White House and Congress are putting the free world's safety at risk.

If a vital terrorist is held in captivity with information that could lead to a massive scale nuclear attack, it's our leaders' duty to extract that key information by any means necessary.

I cannot believe that I sit here in my shed reading these liberal Web sites that rejoice in the release of these so-called "torture memos." "Torture" is a loaded term in the first place. OK, what are we talking about here? Waterboarding? In my opinion, that important technique should only be used on low-level evildoers who can break a bit easier. When you get up to the high-level evildoer, I suggest using far more useful tactics including:
1. Shouting through bullhorns with a Sargeant Carter-like voice (I loved that "Gomer Pyle" show)
2. Dumping the evildoer into human waste.
3. Threaten to set up a firing squad whereby the evildoer is glued up to the wall and blind people shoot at him.
4. Threaten to put the evildoer under a steamroller.
Those are just a few ideas, but the lesson to be learned is that those who protect our nation must have all the necessary tools to carry out their jobs correctly.
God Bless, Bill Orvis White

Why bullshit around with screaming and fake firing squads? Bring back the rack and the iron maiden. Ooh, ooh, boiling in oil, that's an oldie but a goody. Our nation's prisons are full of sadists and sociopaths who do nothing but suck up taxpayer money. I say, put those freeloaders to work torturing suspected insurgents! That BTK guy will break those towel heads faster than you can say, "Jack Robinson," he will.
