We don’t torture we do invade and kill in Cold Blood

A hooded and wired Iraqi prisoner at Abu Ghraib prison was allegedly told he would be electrocuted if he fell off a box

We are not a better country if we pretend that we are prepared to pay those prices but hypocritically below the radar we actually do all of these things because we want to have our cake and eat it too. That’s the position that we are in now! –Alan Dershowitz
Wasn’t Sen. Obama against President Bush’s policies on “the war on terror” and enhanced interrogation techniques before, as President, he was for them and began to use those policies himself?

By no means, I’m I condemning the decisions and actions that led to the death of Osama bin Laden. What I am is shocked. I’m shocked at the blatant hypocrisy of the Liberal Left. The Left excoriated president George W. Bush starting at the war on terror and going through to the Abu Ghraib prison photographs that showed the sophomoric antics of a few military prison guards engaged in largely fake torture scenarios meant to demean their terrorist captives more than anything else.

What ensued was a national, no a world outcry against a perceived wrong doing by the United States in general and against president Bush and vice president Cheney in particular.

Sen. Barry Hussein Soetoro used both the war on terror and the topic of torture to denounce U.S. policy. As well, he vowed that as president he would not use such tactics because those type of tactics are against the morals of America.

As president, Soetoro did again denounce torture and he signed an Executive order to close Guantanamo Bay (which never happened) to give an impression that he was morally superior to the previous administration. (see 1:34min video)

The total hypocrisy is that, as president, everything president Soetoro denounced as morally inferior policy of the Bush administration; the torture, the wars and the warrantless wiretaps are being done by president Soetoro or he is directly benefiting from them. Ironically everything that president Soetoro told the American people we should not be doing because, he said, they are not representative of the American way, he is presently doing.

As President Obama celebrates the signature national-security success of his tenure, he has a long list of people to thank. On the list: George W. Bush.

[A]detention and interrogation system that Obama once condemned as contrary to American values produced one early lead that, years later, brought U.S. forces to the high-walled compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, and a fatal encounter with an unarmed Osama bin Laden.-- Scott Wilson and Anne E. Kornblut (source)

This is in total contradiction of everything that Barry Hussein Soetoro claims he believes in, yet the capture of Osama bin Laden was the result of all of George W. Bush’s policies, which contradictorily president Soetoro adopted when he became president. What this does is it confirms that everything that Mr. Soetoro did prior to him assuming the presidency was purely partisan and destructive to the country. Somebody owes president Bush a great big apology. No president Soetoro owes president Bush a great big apology. (see 3:58min video)

And we have to pay the consequences, and the consequences mean that we do not capture Osama bin laden and we do not prevent certain preventable acts of terrorism. If we are prepared to pay those prices then we are a better country.

We are not a better country if we pretend that we are prepared to pay those prices but hypocritically below the radar we actually do all of these things because we want to have our cake and eat it too. That’s the position that we are in now!

We say that we are against torture, we would torture if we had the nine, ten hypothetical that Congressman King set out. We did use the information we elicited from waterboarding, we continue to wiretap without warrant and we shot a man in cold blood without giving him an opportunity to surrender and we all think that that was terrific.

Let’s face reality we’re a bunch of hypocrites. And that’s probably necessary when you live in a real world with terrible people. You want to comply with the highest standards but you also want to achieve the ends, you can’t do that—Alan Dershowitz
As Alan Dershowitz said the Barry Hussein Soetoro administration used information gotten from torture to find and kill bin Laden. The Soetoro administration still uses warrantless wiretapping and according to Mr. Dershowitz. It is possible that the Soetoro administration shot Osama bin Laden in cold blood according to Dershowitz. Osama bin Laden was shot to save the administration the embarrassment of placing bin Laden in the Obama and Holder U.S. Justice system. They just recently discovered that our Justice system is not equipped to handle war criminals the caliber of bin Laden.

As a candidate for president, Barack Obama offered himself as a clear alternative to Bush-era anti-terrorism policies. Governing has proven muddier. Yesterday, President Obama announced that he will revamp, rather than reject, the system of military tribunals that President George W. Bush created to try terrorism suspects.-- Michael D. Shear and Peter Finn (source)

Yes Mr. Dershowitz, I couldn’t have said it any better myself, you Progressive Liberals types are a bunch of hypocrites.
