The Obama flip-flop on prosecuting Bush officials for enhanced interrogation techniques

Lost in the media hype about the release of Bush administration memos regarding harsh interrogation methods is the certainty that these methods can not now be used by the CIA under Obama no matter how much danger we face in a future crisis. The Obama team has made such an issue of this that it would be virtually impossible for them to backpedal later.

This means that when the next major terrorist attack occurs, or is imminent, America will be depending on the good wishes of the terror leaders as to whether to release critical information in time to stop them. In other words, we will be totally vulnerable.

This is unilateral disarmament of the worst kind. It's not a question of if, but only when, Americans, perhaps in the thousands, will die as a result of Obama's naivete and political grandstanding.

Obama is talking about giving up nuclear weapons. He's already given up an almost equally important weapon in America's arsenal.
