CAIR has a problem with waterboarding terrorist!

The un-indicted terror co-conspirator, CAIR, has weighed in with their objection to Judge Michael Mukasey President Bush’s attorney general nomination. They are urging senators to oppose confirmation of this man because of his unwillingness to answer questions to which he has no knowledge.

The issue is waterboarding…..

In a whine-o-gram to RoP faithful, CAIR’s “National Legislative Director” Corey P. Saylor advises us to the ineffectiveness of the procedure. Citing a report in The Independent of London "…waterboarding has been considered torture for over a century and the US military is banned from using it…"

I have a few problems here. First, what does a CAIR legislative director do exactly? Comb over old case files looking for loopholes to further erode our culture? How to cause a scene in an airport without really crossing the legal line?

The second thing I take issue with is this statement made by Saylor, "Waterboarding is torture, and the use of such brutal techniques erodes America's moral leadership in the world," and "Torture is not a legacy we want to pass on to our children." This statement made me laugh. Surely this guy is aware of the brutality of the enemy we’re facing. However, believing the ACLU should be on the case of every battlefield terrorist we pick up prior to making a statement to interrogators, as not to infringe on rights afford to Americans, is not the way to prevent more bloodshed.

As much as the islamic community (to which CAIR represent) wants you to think they’re patriotic Americans, their open defense of terrorists abroad make that a hard pill to swallow. Making sure Ahmed and Mohamad have a koran, prayer rug and halal meals served to them is not a dilemma that keeps me up at night. These “freedom fighters” have spit on, thrown urine and feces at our military personal who, if the rolls were reversed, would have their heads sawed off to the melodramatic cries of allah akbar while being filmed.

No, the privilege of life, let alone a lawyer, wasn't given to many of our murdered countrymen at the hands of these 7th century savages. A cold room with Britney Spears blaring all night is not torture. Sitting, standing or chained to the floor is not torture. When the lives of Americans are on the line, do what has to be done, even waterboarding.

Waterboarding is a pretty horrible form of torture, janice. I had no idea what it was about, and presumed that it was like strapping down a person and pouring water on them or something, until I read this article:

Made me squirm uncomfortably.

You're correct Jacob, it's horrible. But, I wouldn't classify it as torture. Our marines have to go through it as part of their training. The whole idea is to make the suspect believe they're going to drown, our interrogators won't let them.

That's how we broke Kahlid Sheik Mohamad the 9/11 mastermind, and thwarted many plots in America and abroad.

I think we've cheapened the word torture, the same way the word "holocaust" is used by vegans for the chicken, beef and pork industry.

To torture is to cause lasting damage.

Making someone believe they are drowning is torture. I'm not kidding about feeling uncomfortable after reading that article I linked to, it really made me feel a bit sick.

America is meant to be the good and honorable one in the war on terror, resorting to filling people's lungs with water doesn't say much for you guys.

I don't think waterboarding should EVER be used on soldiers in a time of war.

But un-uniformed murderers that target children... And women... And perform REAL acts of torture... I believe waterboarding should be used if it can save lives.
