    We have to torture people so they won’t torture us… according to the tortured logic of the CIA.

    Will Obama get another Nobel Peace prize?

    Could be worse for them… They could be on the other side of the fence in a Cuban prison…

    Remember, the U.S. are the GOOD GUYS, and the GOOD GUYS only do bad things to BAD GUYS. So if the U.S. did something bad to you, then you are a BAD GUY, and therefore not human and undeserving of human rights.

    Doesn’t anyone else find the idea of a government having absolute control of memories unsettling?

    I’m old enough to remember when the US sent civilian aid agencies to foreign disaster zones. So are a lot of foreigners. Why do we militarize disaster relief? Because it’s an opportunity to take over a country while it’s weak. For example: Haiti. Thus: why some people are suspicious of US disaster relief, especially when it’s delivered by the military.

    I’m not making excuses but rather just an observation. I can always be worse.

    Actually, you’re trying to make the argument that torture victims are lucky because of whom they are being tortured by.

    ‘Aid did some good and saved some lives early on but ultimately led to more division, more cynicism and made the mercantile class even richer,’ says Mark Schuller, a  U.S. anthropologist who teaches in Haiti. ‘In the end the way the aid was delivered, the lack of co-ordination and the lack of respect for the Haitian people did more harm than good. It would have been better if they had not come.’

    Actually, I recall Obama trying to close several years ago. It was in the news at the time that no state would accept the prisoners.

    “I find it unsettling that most USA citizens lack the ability to think for themselves. That is they seem to lack critical thinking skills.” When I took Educational Psychology I read a statistic about critical thinking, the final stage (after concrete thinking) in cognitive development. It stated that about 60% of adults never advance past concrete thinking. My first reaction was that number seemed kind of low. That phenomenon is displayed here constantly.

    Obama is not my “Hero”, and I’ve criticized him plenty of times for the drone killings. But I know you don’t care; it’s easier for you to believe that anyone who disagrees with you is an “Obamabot”, rather than acknowledging that people might disagree with you because your viewpoints are disagreeable.
