Senator Diane Feinstein, Committee Chairman of the Intelligence Committee, released a 600 page document alleging systematic U.S. government torture of innocent Muslims. To listen to the spin by the liberal media, they were innocent bystanders and had nothing to do with the most significant attack on the United States in history. Senator Feinstein, President Obama and democrats in congress and the liberal media harmonized in declaring that the real America—the one with good values—does not torture! Torture, according to President Obama, “is contrary to who we are!”
Obama, Feinstein, McCain, NBC, CNN, MSNBC and other liberals, by their statements are implying that there is an essential, virtuous America whose purity George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and the CIA defiled.
It is impossible to forget what the driving force was that prompted the capturing and detention of suspect terrorists and why it was important to gain any and all information possible? Most of us can easily recall that day the greatest disaster ever witnessed on US soil happened! On September 11, 2001, terrorists attacked the United States. They hijacked four airplanes in mid-flight. The terrorists flew two of the planes into two skyscrapers at the World Trade Center in New York City. The impact caused the buildings to catch fire and collapse. Another plane destroyed part of the Pentagon (the U.S. military headquarters) in Arlington, Virginia. The fourth plane crashed in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Officials believe that the terrorists on that plane intended to destroy either the White House or the U.S. Capitol. Passengers on the plane fought the terrorists and prevented them from reaching their goal. In all, nearly 3,000 people were killed in the 9/11 attacks.
Following 9/11, President Bush took many steps to try to make the country safer. Security at airports and in public buildings was tightened. The Department of Homeland Security—was created. Many actions were taken to ensure the safety of Americans against another terrorist attack. One of those actions was to capture and detain suspected terrorists that may have played a part in or had knowledge about the attack. Once those suspects were captured, techniques were used, one of which was
Waterboarding to gain intelligence about the enemy’s plans for future attacks. The techniques used were no more brutal than to which our own Navy Seals are subjected in training. The detainees were not killed, their minds were not permanently damaged nor did they lose limbs. I submit that these alleged acts of torture by the CIA, pale in comparison to what we as a nation subject unquestionable innocent victims every day of every year.
The National Right to Life Committee using data provided by the Guttmacher Institute, reported that the total of US abortions since the Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court decision in 1973 is nearly 60 million. That is 60 million lives of innocent babies that have done nothing but strive to be born. They have not blown up buildings or killed anyone. The innocent of the innocent!
The real hypocrisy by Obama, Feinstein and the liberal media comes when one considers “who we really are!” They become unglued at the thought of waterboarding our fiercest and evil enemies that behead people that are not of their ideology but condone the tortuous abortion procedure of sucking over 60 million babies out of the womb limb by limb! In the case of partial birth abortion, sticking a probe in the head of a baby as it is being born and sucking its brains out!
Some babies even survive the abortion attempt and are born alive. Obama is on record supporting allowing them to die. He made the following statements as Senator of Illinois, “Babies who survive abortions are not protected by the Equal Protection Clause of the Constitution.” “A ban to stop aborted babies from being shelved to die would be burdensome to mothers.” “Aborting babies alive and letting them die violates no universal principle.”
All this for the convenience of the would-be mother and/or father that doesn’t want the child. Feinstein, rather than being outraged by killing of innocent babies, supports it? The ironic thing is that when one objects to those actions, we are religious extremists and bigots conducting a “war on women!” The ugly truth is, by condoning this action, this is what we have become, who we are and what we value. Pamper the evil doers and torture and kill the innocent!
The President, Senator Feinstein and others condemn moderate measures such as waterboarding our national enemies, to make our citizens safer and say this is not what we should be! Forbid it that we should interrogate Muslim terrorists that want to kill us and make them uncomfortable! However, the unfortunate truth is, we are a nation that condones not only killing the innocent, but absolute inhumane torture of them in the process. Look at the pictures Mr. President; perhaps moderate torture of Muslims that want to kill us is “contrary to what we are” under your leadership, but torturers and murderers of innocent babies which you clearly endorse, nearly 60 million of them; that is who we really are!
