Thanks.

I got a call from Tom he wanted to know what he should get you for Christmas. I told him you would love a Cornhusker horse blanket and a new bitless bridle. That old bridle is starting to give you an overbite. I know Creamchesse loves her fun but she should take it a little easier on you.

Tell Pop-Pop (it's what he makes me call him) that I already got my Christmas present: all of Bo's old Husker turtlenecks.

They look AWESOME on me!

No.

You think it says what you want it to say, even though it doesn't.

You represented US Soldiers in Germany once upon a time. If one of your US soldier clients had been treated in the same manner as some of the detainees and you were in charge of prosecuting the perpetrators, what charges would you bring against them?


Ever get an answer?

Now can you answer my question that you avoided earlier. If you were prosecuting a foreign national who had treated a US soldier/prisoner in this way what would you charge them with?


Still waitin on that answer?

When they do it to us, according to international law(?) it's classified as torture.

But when we do it to them, the neo-cons refer to it as only an "enhanced interrogation".

A semantic charade.

Ask John McCain. He says he was "tortured". I'll take his word for it.

(Nice to have a real debate around this ghost town again. Thanks to all).
