Obama's "torture memo" dilemma
As usual, Congressional Democrats want to act as if they were just a bunch of innocent little by-standers, completely duped by the most ignorant President in our nations history, when it comes to knowing about the enhanced interrogation techniques (or "torture") that were used to extract vital information from high-value senior al-Qaida leaders. Not so fast says Rep. Pete Hoekstra (R-MI). He's more then willing to call Obama's bluff on this one by saying that if you want hearings on this matter then get ready to hear ALL the evidence, not just bits and pieces that fit your anti-Bush, anti-Republican agenda. Rep. Hoekstra has NAMES and dates of EVERYONE who ATTENDED and APPROVED all interrogation techniques employed, Republican and DEMOCRAT, and he's more then willing kick-ass and name names.

Let's get one thing straight here folks. Obama is all for torture. Obama has no problem whatsoever with torture. He just doesn't want to get his hands dirty doing it. He feels that torture is a job that Americans just should not do and so that is why he outsources his torture work to other countries, i.e., RENDITION.
Mark Levin speaks for me on this one:
