    I Hope This Doesn

    But I bet it's going to get a bunch of Americans killed sooner or later. I think the guy who said it was for political purposes has it right:

    "Leon Panetta, Mr Obama's CIA chief, and four most recent former heads of the spy agency had all implored the US president not to release the memos, stating that doing so would damage national security and demoralise CIA operatives.

    Mr Obama described the methods as part of a "dark and painful chapter in our history" and Rahm Emanuel, his chief of staff, defended the decision to publicise them, stating that it had "enhanced America's image abroad" and deprived al-Qaeda of "propaganda tools".

    Gary Berntsen, a former CIA officer who led the agency's paramilitary team that searched for Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan, said his former colleagues were "horrified" by Mr Obama's actions.

    "When you make this public you define for al-Qaeda the limits of the playbook we would use against them. This allows them to prepare themselves.

    "Part of the problem is that this administration can't control themselves in terms of continuing to throw mud at their predecessors. The decision seemed to be political."

    The release of the documents and the outlawing of the techniques, he suggested, could come to haunt Mr Obama. "What do you do when you capture a terrorist who has a bio-weapon or fissile material if you have a standard that won't allow for anything at all? What he's done is close down his room for manoeuvre."

    Michael Hayden, who retired in January as CIA chief, told Fox News: "What we have described for our enemies, in the midst of a war, are the outer limits that any American would ever go to in terms of interrogating an al-Qaeda terrorist. That's very valuable information."

    He's a "Community Organizer." His big challenges were things like affordable public transportation. As a world leader, he's simply out of his league.

    Why would someone like Chavez hate America - and yet like Obama? They see him as an easy mark.

    He's a boy, playing a man's game, simple as that. He's not "intelligent," he's just a puss.

    You guys seem to have missed the most important point...
    With Barack Obama as President...there are no enemies. As soon as he gets through apologizing to EVERYONE...we'll be universally loved, and won't have to worry about how to treat enemies, 'cause we won't have any.

    After letting Chavez piss on his leg, the only thing left for him to do is go to N. Korea and service their dictator.

    Had enough "Change" yet?

    Rhamm and Obama like most Illinois politicians are arrogant self rightous individauls that are corput to the core. We have only seen the beinging of the scandal with our recently removed Rod Blagovich (Governor) stay tuned for more of the story; assuming that our liberal press starts doing its job by reporting the facts and not spininng it!

    The Republicans have made up alot of ground in resent weeks due to that idiot. Now he and his Democrat followers are just trying to smear mud and rip this wonderful country apart. Anything to get his stupidness off the news. Then again, how stupid is it to tell the world what we did to these terrorists and that we will not do it again?

    Mr. Specht:

    No disrespect intended but you make a list of all the, "arrogant self rightous (politicians) corput (op. cit.) to the core" that reside in or represent Chicago/Crook County and I'll make a list covering the other 101 counties in Illinois. Wanna bet which list is longer??

    In the interest of accuracy and full disclosure, when you refer to rotters from Chicago/Crook County, please identify them as such and leave "Illinois" out of the discussion.
