Lou Dobbs calls out Chuck Schumer for his waffling on whether Americans would accept torture being used in the phony ticking time bomb scenario. He then asks his audience to participate in an on line poll and asks whether they would "personally employ torture to save American lives and prevent an attack on this country?" And surprise, surprise...the overwhelming answer is...YES! Looks like all that fear mongering is paying off well for you. What's next Lou? You going to ask them if they'd like to shoot Mexicans to put an end to illegal immigration?

Go after Schumer or anyone else for their double talk on this issue, but asking Americans if they would participate in torture? Lou I hate to break it to you, but 24 is a television show. The ticking time bomb scenario doesn't happen in real life. And torture is illegal. You should not be pushing it as something acceptable in our society.
