Obama says waterboarding was torture

WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama said Wednesday night that waterboarding authorized by former President George W. Bush was torture and that the information it gained from terror suspects could have been obtained by other means. “In some cases, it may be harder,” he conceded at a White House news conference capping a whirlwind first 100 days in office.

Obama also expressed much greater optimism now than a month ago that Chrysler could remain a “going concern,” possibly without filing for bankruptcy or with a “very quick” one. Obama did not say so, but Italian automaker Fiat Group SpA is expected to sign a partnership agreement with Chrysler LLC by Thursday as part of negotiations to keep the struggling U.S. automaker alive without bankruptcy protection.

The president gave assurance that one way or another Pakistan’s nuclear arsenal would not fall into the hands of Islamic extremists. He said he was confident “primarily, initially” because he believes Pakistan will handle the issue on its own. But he left the door open to eventual U.S. action to secure the weapons if need be.

The prime-time news conference was the third of Obama’s presidency and the first not dominated by a recession that has thrown millions of Americans out of work.

Obama says waterboarding was torture

I would love to be able to get an honest answer from Barack Hussein Obama, but I don’t think he has the TRUTH in him.

TORTURE –noun 1. the act of inflicting excruciating pain, as punishment or revenge, as a means of getting a confession or information, or for sheer cruelty.
2. a method of inflicting such pain.
3. Often, tortures. the pain or suffering caused or undergone.
4. extreme anguish of body or mind; agony.
5. a cause of severe pain or anguish.

And you know what else I would love to ask this America hating poser of a president? Mr. President, WHAT do you think the victims of 9-11 experienced!! That’s the question I want to ask. I want to know if he even cares about what went through the minds of American citizens that we’re trapped in the upper floors of the WTC, in the destruction of the Pentagon and those folks that died in the crashes of the airliners.

I seriously wonder, just who’s side is this disgrace of a POTUS really on? His AG and Secretary of State can’t wait to free the prisoners at Guantanamo. They are just eaten up in anticipation of being able to prosecute any and everyone connected TO the Bush administration that may have even been remotely tied in to what Obama and Company believe to be torture.

I do NOT subscribe to conspiracy theories as a rule, but it’s so very coincidental that as this nation is suffering the WORST presidency in it’s history, as we are suffering a terrible recession, as we are living some of the worst times in modern American history, up pops the SWINE FLU.

Ya know, things have really changed in this nation, it once was said that a black man would become president of the United States when pigs could fly. 100 days into Obama’s presidency and what do we have? Swine flu. Coincidence maybe??

    Fred,
    You know me by now and I will speak my mind on the things I believe, I have to say that as the WORST prseident ever this Bozo (no offense to the real Bozo the clown intended) has now effectively made the once strong and proud nation I love look like a whimpering chihuahua. He has no intentions of securing the borders for safety, security or any sane reasons to keep terrorist,drugs or anything else out of the U.S.A. And what is more Now he has become the “pro bono” lawyer for the Muslim extremists that are HELL BENT on killing as many Free men women and children as they can before they die! If you want to know what these PIGS are up to you need only look to the european countries that have (Cough cough) been “politically correct” and allowed the Muslims to invade by immigration. (See: http://majorityrights.com/index.php/weblog/comments/muslim_rape_wave_in_sweden/ ) “Yes We Can” be stupid enough to think that we can get important information from muslims by sitting down with them offering them a new sheet for their little heads, A ham salad sandwich (ooops there I go being Racist again), Chai tea and maybe a back rub. What they needed to do was line the pigs up in a circle, Ask the first one what he knew, If he didn’t provide an answer that was satisfatory shoot his groin then ask the next one in line. sonner or later someone would talk. (and by the way THAT is torture)

    I want to know where I can get “worst president ever” bumper stickers? They say the most direct point of all the stickers I’ve seen. As far as commenting on the blog post, I’ll let those of better English educated say it for me as they usually get the point across better than I.

    I heard the other day that the closest thing to a birth certificate obama could come up with was an apology letter from the condom manufactuer.

    Obama, McCain, and others are saying that the US doesn’t use harsh interrogation or torture so that when our GI’s are captured, they will be treated humanely. Well, that didn’t happen in Korea, Vietnam, and now in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    This product of inferior breeding we have in the White House isn’t even concerned as to what happened to our men after they were captured by the Islamic terrorists.

    I would like to Thank those who used the Water boarding or what ever the hell it took to keep my family safe from these Islamic terrorists. I don’t care what has to be used, just do it. I don’t want to hear about it. Or see the damned pictures.
    This makes me so mad. I lived in a Muslim country for almost 5 yrs. Guess what American Christians, They hate you. They don’t give a shit about you or your children or your beliefs. They want to destroy you and all the Apologies in the world will not change their mind. We are falling fast from the Super Power of the World to the Pansy Ass Country. I pray for our troops who have to serve under this Administration. And I pray for our children.

    Bush II doesn’t have to worry about being the worst POTUS ever. ‘Comrade Obama’ has got all other candidates for that honor beat hands down. And this is only the first 100 days!

    Shoot Basti….at least it took Bush nearly 8 years to get that title.
