    From th OP article:

    "Most alarming, says Jafeer, is the issue of the targeted killing of American citizens who are terrorism suspects."

    Of course only Obama has done this.

    And no one died from waterboarding under Bush.

    Anything to draw attention away from the stark failures of the Obama administration.

    Here's the Can of Worms...

    ...so what. We have never been safer, and it was due to the methods Bush used to keep the terrorist in their own backyards.

    I think that the can of worms that Crabby is subconsciously worried about is the fact that Obama has not pulled back from anything that Bush did here but has only expanded it.

    He instictively knows that this can't be good for "the one" either.

    emphasis mine

    The only thing that CAN be good for this yo-yo is the total blind allegiance from his "HIS"* followers!!!
    (Certainly not his record, or honesty, or foreign/domestic policies, or yada, yada, yada!!)

    Don't get excited.

    One opinion by one attorney means next to nothing. There were more than one that opined otherwise.

    Is this just another of Crabby's drive by threads?

    Or is he going to contribute to the discussion in some way?

    Lets see - Libs say we are not to practice water boarding, (Crab - please link a source as to how many died from that).

    Since Obama hates torture and extreme suffering, It appears he may change his opinion on Abortion? Right?
