Yeah. It's the classic 'logic': if x is done to us, it is torture. If we do x to others, it is okay.Just like the invasion of Iraq was a pre-emptive strike designed to eliminate a military threat, but the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor was a dastardly sneak attack (and not, of course, a pre-emptive strike to eliminate or diminish the United States'capacity to wage war in the Pacific and prevent/hinder the Japanese Empire's imperialistic plans)
You all hate America.
arkonbey-Just like the invasion of Iraq was a pre-emptive strike designed to eliminate a military threat, but the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor was a dastardly sneak attackGreat point! It's amazing the sort of contortions in logic one would need to go through to seperate these issues morally. Although in the president's case I believe he's dumb enough to simply go with the differences in semantics between "torture" and "interrogation" as if they were somehow meaningful.Randal-It's more of a love/ hate relationship. Sort of like those screwball comedies from the 40s.
