A country that allows over 1 million of its unborn children to be brutally murdered every year under cover of law is now expressing outrage over the enhanced interrogation techniques that were used on ruthless 9/11 terrorists. So, we don’t have a problem killing 1 million of our kids every year but we draw the line at splashing a little water in a terrorist’s face or making them feel uncomfortable. Under Senate Democrats we spent $40 million to generate a 6,700 page report that tells every terrorist in the world what we won’t do to them. This report, released by Senator Dianne Feinstein, will most likely result in the deaths of foreign intelligence operatives and make any country think twice before assisting us in rooting out terrorism.
As a pro-life advocate, I don’t support violence, but I’m also a realist. I don’t have a problem with the CIA roughing up a handful of terrorists if it helps prevent another attack. What I do have a problem with is releasing classified information to the world on our means and methods. I still remember watching as victims at the World Trade Center were forced to make the decision to either jump to their death or burn to death. The day after 9/11 we were committed as a nation to doing whatever it took to prevent another attack. Fast forward 13 years, and the politicians who were begging the CIA to do anything they felt they had to in order to prevent another attack, are now throwing them under the bus, in a partisan political move.
The lives of innocent people don’t matter to the left. It’s all about politics and it’s all about them. They’re perfectly fine with babies being killed by the thousands every day and sending over half a billion taxpayer dollars to Planned Parenthood every year. They don’t have a problem with an airman, sitting at a computer console in America, firing a hell-fire missile from a drone half way around the world and killing a terrorist and everyone else near them. But slap a terrorist with an open hand, subject them to loud music, or water-board them and it’s torture.
Torture is intentionally killing an unborn, pain-capable baby by ripping it apart with a Sopher clamp. Torture is a blood-thirsty terrorist beheading an innocent victim in the name of an insane ideology. Water-boarding 4 terrorists, under constant medical supervision to insure that they aren’t harmed, is not torture. What would you not do to protect the lives of your loved ones? If you were the leader of the free world and your country was under attack by murderous thugs what would you take off the table in your efforts to protect your citizens?
Those expressing outrage over the enhanced interrogation techniques that helped prevent another attack on our homeland are stumbling through an ethical minefield of moral equivalency. They place the principles that our nation stands for on par with the ideology of an enemy dedicated to our destruction. They claim to be outraged over the harsh treatment of unrepentant killers, while looking the other way as we kill over a million of our own every year. They compare medically supervised interrogations to torture techniques employed by the enemies of humanity.
We made mistakes after 9/11. We can do better and we are better than those who wish us harm. The world will be a better place when the worst thing one man does to another is place him under temporary mental or physical stress in order to save the lives of millions.
