Oh, the fax machines at Grover Norquist's office are whirring again. And leave it to Bill O'Reilly to spin their talking points in his (surprise! surprise!) Talking Points Memo segment.
Naturally, the only people who have problems with waterboardings are the far left, the media (aren't they one and the same?) and some Republicans. I don't know about you, but that sounds like a majority of Americans to me. And the whole Jack Bauer scenario kind of falls apart when you realize that the great information the CIA got from Zubaydeh came a day later than the actual waterboarding...ticking time bomb indeed. Do they actually mean to say that there were no other ways--ones that conformed to basic human rights and the Geneva Conventions--to obtain that information? If so, then that makes the CIA look pretty ineffectual, doesn't it?
So tell me, why is Falafel Man so eager to endorse an act that the majority of Americans are against and that is illegal by both domestic and international standards? Does he hate America that much?
