Waterboarding Saves Lives

Just imagine if some short time after 9/11 that another large city like Los Angeles was struck by a terrorist attack of the same grand scale that happened in New York City in 2001. Of course, we all remember that day of infamy, right? Almost 3,000 lives were quickly snuffed out due to attacks by Islamists who hated this country. Commerce stopped for days, 2 landmark buildings in The Big Apple were turned to rubble, and just about every American was watching the news 24/7 wondering what was coming next.

What Al-Queda had in store was an attack on Los Angeles, specifically "The Library Tower" in L.A. The information came from, yes, waterboarding the mastermind of the 9/11 attacks, Khalid Sheik Mohammed and another top Al-Queda terrorist Abu Zubaydah. Without this harsh interrogation technique, we might not have received the info needed to save lives as KSM was quick to have his lips sealed. As a matter of fact, before he was waterboarded KSM was asked about future planned attacks on the United States, he ominously told his CIA interrogators, "Soon, you will know."

You can check out the CIA memo about waterboarding here.

This is Los Angeles. A liberal Mecca where I'm sure the majority of folks who work and reside there think of waterboarding as torture and should not be applied when it comes to trying to extract crucial information from otherwise uncooperative terrorists. Shouldn't they at least be grateful that this interrogation method saved their city and the lives of their friends and families? Let me put it this way. I'd rather be waterboarded alongside the savages if I knew it was going to save lives then just hope that they change their minds against attacking.

Hat tip to Right Pundits.

Hey! I downloaded the coloring contest image but didn't get very far coloring it. I'm an engraver at a sign company so I have access to some pretty good graphic software. That pretty much means I tried too hard to make it cool which was taking a long time so I ended up bagging it. Story of my life...

This begs the question - what happens when the next terrorist attack occurs? Obama is leaving the door wide open to terrorists with his "be nice to them and they'll be nice to us" mentality. This naive world view is dangerous beyond all description.

After the next attack, even Obama's media lapdogs are going to want to know why He failed to identify and stop the plot. He won't have a good answer.
