The Bush administration has long held that overly-aggressive interrogation methods used on detainees in Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo Bay were the work of a few "bad apples." Now, an investigation being conducted by the Senate Armed Services Committee has revealed that William Haynes II, General Counsel for the U.S. Department of Defense, sought the advice of military psychologists within a Pentagon agency to design the interrogation techniques. The Committee's findings add to mounting evidence that the detainees' torture resulted from decisions made at the highest levels of government, particularly within the office of U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney.

The fact that the Military has kept us safe, and the Intelligence they have gathered is keeping us from terrorists killing us here, makes me wonder why all the fuss is going on over how a few of these bottom dwellers were treated. They are not human beings as we know them. Leave our government alone and let them do what they are doing now. Do even you and your liberal line really have rather had Al Gore in office on Sept. 11th. The Democrats have not been exactly expert at showing us how to fight terrorism.
Do what ever it takes, and keep these bottom feeders where they belong, which isn't here.
