WASHINGTON (CNN) - The Obama administration will release four Bush-era memos on terror interrogations Thursday, according to a senior administration official.

The administration has also informed CIA officials they will not be prosecuted for past waterboarding

    If waterboarding was considered torture during the Japanese War Crimes Tribunals of WWII then then should still be considered as an act of torture when Americans use the technique.

  2. No Amnesty for the CIA

    We can all celebrate that CIA waterboarders have been granted immunity for committing torture. It makes me feel so much safer to know that the law will not be enforced.

    "And people are mad about the waterboarding of these captured combatants/terrorists why?"

    When you lower yourself to their level then you lower yourself to their level. America is better than that...so I'm told.

    OK HERE IS THE DEAL
    I think that fair and balance deal might be to CONDEMN Pres Bush for torturing in order to protect our country, and at the spe time, CONDEMN OBAMA AND HIS GANG FOR TREASON AS ENEMiES OF THE STATE for NOT SELLING THE NATION BUT SERVING THE COUNTRY, in silver plate, TO THE ENEMIES FOR FREE!
    So let the people decide ! I would go for it, certainly.
    Questions anyone?

    So the bottom line is that no one in the rotten Bush administration, including Bush, will ever be held responsible for the lies, corruption, torture, misery and war criminal activity they perpetrated?

    Meanwhile, if I get a ticket for going through a stop sign, I'll be prosecuted to the highest level of law....
