Do You Want to be Aborted?

I’m not really sure what I think of Ann Coulter, but this short clip is great.

We are allowed to shoot pirates and bomb the Taliban, but we aren’t allowed to pour water over the man behind 9/11. I really just don’t understand the left and why they are so worried about what we do or don’t do to terrorists. Send Jack Bauer in for the information, turn the cameras off, and then go do something with the information he comes back with. If waterboarding someone could have stopped 9/11 from happening, you can be sure I would be in favor of it. Somehow, the left is more worried about that terrorist and his feelings than the 3000 people who died in that attack.

    Well that’s kinda the problem, isn’t it?
    1) It hasn’t proven useful in revealing important intelligence about the enemy.
    2) Anyone can get waterboarded, not only terrorists.

    I would think twice before quoting Ann Coulter on anything. She denies Evolution, for fuck’s sake!

    Not ANYONE anyone, just those in Guantanamo and such. You only need to be a suspected terrorist to be there.

    And no, we’re not _allowed_ to kill pirates and the taliban. The same people who oppose waterboarding probably are against policing the world, so no.

    The new National Security Director, appointed by Obama, says the only useful information they got out of anyone at Guantanamo was a result of ‘torture’ http://www.nytimes.com/2009/04/22/us/politics/22blair.html

    Though I disagree with Derek here. I don’t think the ends justify the means, ever. But that’s just me.

    Also disagree with Derek…America is supposed to stand for principles like humane, decent treatment for all people. If we answer terrorism by taking away liberties we believe in, they’re winning.

    ok, a few points.

    from that article - before he looked at the information this was said:
    “Do you believe the C.I.A.’s interrogation detention program has been effective?” Senator Christopher Bond, a Missouri Republican, asked him.

    “I’ll have to look into that more closely before I can give you a good answer on that one,” Admiral Blair answered.

    After he looked at the information he said:
    “High value information came from interrogations in which those methods were used and provided a deeper understanding of the al Qa’ida organization that was attacking this country”

    From the information we currently have, 3 people were waterboarded, all known terrorists. KSM planned the 9/11 attacks and sawed an Americans head off on video, and we are worried about pouring water on his head?

    “The same people who oppose waterboarding probably are against policing the world, so no.”

    Actually, the shooting pirates and bombing the Taliban has been approved by and carried out under President Obama, whereas the torture is not. So, yes.

    I like standing for humane principles, but I feel like there is a significant difference when you are talking about enemy combatants who happen to enjoy flying planes into buildings. The human rights problems around the world are from leaders not treating their own people well. Not from people who saw Americans heads off on video. He used 2 knives because the first one became too dull. Think about what we are talking about for a minute.
