    Notice how Cheney has been throwing Bush under the bus lately? Perhaps he wants company when they try him in the Hague.

    You know very little about Islam, apparently.

    I read somewhere that soap was not invented until around 200 A. D. I have not been able to verify that, but if true then neither Jesus, Julius Caesar, nor any ancient Greek, Egyptian, or any Old Testament Hebrew prophet ever used soap.

    Personally, I think diet soda is gross. I would rather drink plain water.

    “Of course the report says it did not work it was tailor made for Democrats. Did you catch the part where the CIA was not questioned to prove or disprove any allegations about the accuracy of intelligence gathered. did you miss the part about the last six years of the report where under Obama‚Äôs watch?”

    1) You know that the report was “tailor made for Democrats” because…..?

    2) Could it be that “the CIA was not questioned” because the CIA is a secret organization? Only the Bush administrations outs CIA agents (as in Valerie Plame) when it suits their agenda.

    3) Of course, you righties fall back on “well, Obama must do it too” when your side is caught in lies and deceit.

    I’m with Diz’s dad. Food should be served on a plate, eaten slowly, and enjoyed; not gulped down out of a styrofoam box.

    Here in New England, to say “guys” to a mixed group is the equivalent of saying “y’all” to a similar group down South.

    Did you miss all of the news about the report? The point is that little if any useful information was obtained by torture. Standard non-torture interrogation techniques used by the FBI yielded a significant amount of information, while CIA torture yielded overwhelmingly false or misleading information. Physical pain, starvation, sleep depravation, waterboarding, and mental torment make a person insane. They do not make him/her more prone to tell their torturers what the torturers want to know.

    I read it as 475 pounds. Still quite overweight.

    You make some good points. Certainly a well trained and properly equipped police force is essential to a democracy.

    To understand what is going on, however, try to imagine the shoe on the other foot. Imagine that in your town one of your neighbors was killed by a conservative Islamist. Now imagine that crowds of conservative Islamists were descending on your town telling you and your neighbors what to do and denouncing all of you as infidels who do not listen to Islamic law. Now imagine further that a panel of Islamic clergy investigated the incident and exonerated the killer. You and your neighbors are told that is the end of the story, go back to whatever they think you should be doing. Wouldn’t you be upset?

    That is essentially the situation that the black people of Ferguson are in right now.

    Disclaimer: I am not saying that Islamic people, the vast majority of whom are fine people who truly practice their faith and treat others fairly, would ever act that way. I am only hypothesizing a situation that white Americans might relate to.
