factual statements by Alberto Gonzalez IN WRITING, before the courts "changed" their opinion on what torture is.
I'll take on a few of those despite my doubts that you will dispense with the Democrat talking points long enough to really consider what is public record.
As for the "illegal wiretapping", it is so illegal that Obama has decided to continue the program. Sorry about that.
Between 2001 and 2007 alone the number of Americans with a net worth of more than $1 million quadrupled from 2.1 million to 8.9 million.
In 1967 only one in 25 families earned more than $100K (adjusted to 2004 dollars), now almost 25% do. In that same time period, families making more than $75K have nearly tripled.
The percentage of families in all income groups betwen $5K and $50K has dropped by 19% since 1967.
A family that was poor in 1979 was more likely to be rich in the 1990s than to still be poor.
As for waterboarding, the current legal understanding described by our new AG Holder at congressional hearings last week, is that torture includes the intent
(key word there) to cause mental or physical harm. Read that twice before you try to fabricate a case that the three detainees were harmed intentionally. Obama has forbidden all but himself
to order waterboarding.
You may be pained by these situations, but with good facts your suffering will be reduced.
