Hopeful Interrogations

The other day Major Garrett of Fox News asked Obama's sunshine spinmeister Robert Gibbs whether the new Executive Order preventing enhanced interrogation means they would have to treat Osama bin Laden or Zawahiri by the Army Field Manual if captured.

We know it happened, but good luck finding a decent video, and good luck finding a decent transcript of the historic event. Oh, there's a CNN video (which doesn't include Garrett) and this peculiar CNN "rush" transcript, which conveniently clips off Garrett's question.

Well, maybe they've been sucking on the same sigh of relief as has Anderson Cooper. By the way, searching for the transcript at Sunshine Central turned up a big goose egg, too. Apparently it's so transparent it's completely invisible.

But we don't need no stinkin' transcript, the answer to the question of whether bin Laden should be treated with the Field Manual should have been a no-brainer--yes! That's what Obama ran on--no torture--which diminishes our world image. And by crackies, he won, so there's no reason for some namby pamby 'I'll get some confirmation' response.

On second thought, the question was answered long ago:

See? Not so hard. If only Joe had been there.


According to the Pulitzer Prize winning traitor patriot who leaked top secret intelligence about methods used to stop terrorism, Bush's GWoT is now over, put to sleep by the stroke of Obama's pen.

That can only mean Bush won it. Consider--terrorism ranked only 2 percent of importance as an issue before the election. Most people are more worried about their job than about attacks.

So, perhaps we really don't need to worry about sending anyone to "hell" or Gitmo or Alcatraz or East Redneck Pennsylvania. It's over. Wonder where the ticker tape parade wlil be held?

I've been thinking... If Gitmo must close, the only answer to the question "What will we do if we catch Osama (or fill in the blank with any terrorist's name)?"

Sounds about right, Debbie. Who's gonna want to be involved with interrogation now?
