Now THIS is Torture

Oh, and then there's Mr. O'Reilly's stance on torture. Talk about a fellow who wants it both ways. First of all (and, yes, out of one side of his mouth), he says that the Bush administration in no way has advocated torture, that it's all in fact a radical, left-wing smear tactic by those whose agenda is strictly that of embarrassing the President. Fair enough. Arguable (Gonzales's memo, policy of rendition, etc.), but fair enough...............Of course, at the same time, though, he (who, like the President, mind you, has never had any meaningful military experience) continues to spout the effectiveness of torture (hell, he says, that's how the Pakistanis were able to solve a case of potential terrorism). You see what I'm saying here? It's, therefore, like what, the President is being remiss in the fact that he ISN'T engaging in said tactics? The President is being weak on terrorism?..............And he has the audacity, too, to say that Colin Powell, John McCain, John Warner, and Lindsey Graham (all of whom have far more experience on military matters - both congressional and, yes, WHILE ACTUALLY HAVING SERVED IN THE MILITARY than either he or the President) are "misguided". I mean, talk about an arrogant son-of-a-bitch; this fellow, O'Reilly.
