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??
