I'm pretty sure your an asshole, and I could use your posts to prove it.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

Earth to Houston Taliban: Since the O admin has just reinstituted the military trials and only three of the detainees were waterboarded, why not let that play out first. Then we can really see if any "innocents" were tortured.
