This person is supposedly an American, he is running for President of the United States, he is an attorney who served as Associate Attorney General under Reagan, and he was US Attorney and federal prosecutor in New York as well as being elected Mayor of NYC!
Rudy’s exact quote was:
“I’m not sure it is, either,” said Giuliani when asked about Mukasey’s dodge at a forum in Iowa. “It depends on how it’s done. It depends on the circumstances. It depends on who does it.”
What does THAT mean? Its OKAY if its an American doing the waterboarding? Its only wrong if someone ELSE does it? Does he honestly believe that? He’s either incompetent, demented, or a liar.
Waterboarding is torture. Its always been torture. This is not new. People have been prosecuted and imprisoned for the use of waterboarding – because its torture. Giuliani knows its torture. By saying what he said, it tells me that he is willing to torture as well. We as Americans don’t torture – at least we didn’t until Bush and Cheney took over the White House and took this country down a rat hole, into a very dark and secretive place where we neither want to be nor do we belong.
Giuliani = Bush 2 (or I guess Bush 3 – and like most sequels, he will try and outdo the first one – with more action and bang for the buck). If you liked Bush, you’re going to LOVE Giuliani!
He has no business running for president. He apparently has no more respect for the law, or tradition through our history, than the current president and VP.
