    •  But we ratified the UN Convention Against Torture. (7+ / 0-)

      And it was signed by Reagan.

      I wonder if Obama's ardent supporters realize that Obama is to the Right of Ronald Reagan.

      Barack Obama: So morally bankrupt that he thinks people who tortured other people to death should get a pass. Likes to prosecute whistleblowers and pot smokers, though.

        And I haven't seen anyone bring up the little 'it's ok now to kill Americans without a trial because the President says so' part of this yet. (lots of new comments - still reading through)

        I wrote a paper a while back about illegal human experimentation up to WWII that discusses how governments support these types of crimes. Here's a link to it if you are interested.

        I had a bad feeling when Obama was so supportive of Israel's attacks on Gaza on the campaign website back in 2008.
