It never crossed my mind that the US would resort to torture. Or keeping people detained without due process for years. [/quote] Am I missing something? Did Obama stop torturing people? NO [i]In other words, it was the position of the Obama administration that even though the Supreme Court had found a constitutional right for detainees to challenge their confinement, detainees had no constitutional right not to be tortured while in confinement. The Obama administration also insisted that it was not sufficiently clear that the Constitution prohibited torture of aliens, and so “a reasonable officer would not have concluded that plaintiffs here possessed Fifth and Eighth Amendment rights while they were detained at Guantánamo.” [/i] http://campaignstops.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/11/21/tortures-future/ [/quote] Name one documented incident of torture under Obama. Just one. He was smart enough to realize that nothing makes people hate the US worse than the images of torture. [/quote] You forgot to mention this part from your article. "As a candidate in 2008, President Obama stated categorically, “We’ll reject torture — without exception or equivocation.” During his first month in office, he made good on his pledge, signing an executive order prohibiting torture or inhumane treatment. There is no reason to doubt that the order has been followed. This was a huge step forward for the United States." [/quote]
Thanks for all the crap.
