Newt’sw smack down of the CBS report at the last debate on civil trials vs military tribunals must really have Obama shook for his staff to engineer this horrible, fawning softball question at his presser today. Lothian has obviously “drunk the kool-aid”.
Whatever you think of water-boarding, you can not deny that without it, Obama would have never had the intelligence info (developed under Bush) needed to take out Bin Laden and the handful of other terrorists that his Administration has taken credit for eliminating. His main foreign policy success would not have been possible without water-boarding. For the President and the Press to pretend otherwise is the height of hypocrisy.
