    It is an astounding change in our lifetimes. It used to be that water boarding was considered torture which we were just plain not allowed to do. I think we prosecuted the Japanese for doing exactly that and now it is renamed enhanced interrogation techniques. The same with drones. It used not to be allowed to assassinate foreign leaders - think Castro and exploding cigars. What the hell happened. Doesn't anyone realize that democracies willingly tie one hand behind our backs with regard to the rest of the world when it comes to carrying out foreign policy? You can't do these things and still be a democracy. I think the same argument applies to the death penalty.

    While i will not comment on the drones and killing US citizens who are acting as terrorists against our country abroad I will comment on water boarding. Yes we did put Japanese in WW2 on trial for using it and in fact we hung a few for it. However I will point out that this doesn't mean we were some shinning idilic group ourselves. The US commited its share of atrocities itself but we won so no one did anything about it.

    When will I see the outrage that we saw here 6 yrs ago. This drone thing has increased bigtime under the current administration and what we hear on this site is crickets. You tie waterboarding in but fail to address the real issue. We are invading sovereign nations air space and firing on citizens not to mention a few american citizens. Where is Leahy, Sanders and Welch? Have they been bought and paid for that much?
