Obama's Nat'l Security Speech

I'm reading some stuff about the President's speech today at the National Archives...One thing he said about interrogation techniques, “They risk the lives of our troops by making it less likely that others will surrender to them in battle.” is amazingly dim. Who out there actually believes that Al-Qaeda bases its treatment of captured Americans on the American treatment of captured Al-Qaedists? Anybody? Al-Qaeda's methods for dealing with captives does not include any sort of humane treatment and not a drop of mercy. Just look at what we have discovered about their treatment of innocent Iraqi civilians. I hope it was not the President who put this ignorant postulation into the speech. But the President obviously let it stay, so that says something. Something not very good.

I think if you were nice to Al Qaeda they take 2 minutes to sever your head from your body. If not they take five minutes.

But nothing stops the senseless beating beforehand.
