  •  but even there he has jumped to being ugly (12+ / 0-)

    because GWB he was an opponent to torture, as one would expect

    then he became a champion for torture even going so far as to say it had no lasting effects

    to which I asked if he would raise his arms over his head to confirm that stance

    why should we have been or should be incense over the torture he (and many other servicemen) received if he's now okay with it?  IMHO, if we were to take up his current stance then what happened to him should receive no special consideration, no condemnation etc.  it's all just part of war

    I remember how incensed we got over allegations then confirmation that our boys were being tortured, "because look see that's barbaric and shows how barbaric the VC is.  We treat their people, our prisoners, much better, we are the standard they should live by."

    We can no longer say that.
