    We are supposed to be the role model for other countries. We prosecuted (as we should have) Japanese soldiers for waterboarding in WWII.

    A nation is tested under diversity. I guess we failed the test after 911 as we did exactly what the Japanese did when they were in trouble in WWII. But 65 years later, we failed to prosecute Americans who did the same thing.

    Is the moral really that it is OK for Americans to torture but not OK for foreign countries? If so, does anyone really think the rest of the world will actually buy this dumb theory?

    Why is it called enhanced interrogations when we Americans do it, but in the same breath we call it torture when foreigners do it? It is just mind-boggling...
