President-elect Barack Obama is preparing to prohibit the use of waterboarding and harsh interrogation techniques by ordering the CIA to follow military rules for questioning prisoners, according to two U.S. officials familiar with drafts of the plans.
The proposal Obama is considering would require all CIA interrogators to follow conduct outlined in the U.S. Army Field Manual, the officials said. The plans would also have the effect of shutting down secret "black site" prisons around the world where the CIA has questioned terror suspects — with all future interrogations taking place inside American military facilities.
I repeat what I say a few days ago, do not be fooled into thinking this touchy-feely, limp-writsted method of fighting terror will win hearts and minds. It won't. It will only show weakness and complacency, as well as invite the terrorists to strike this nation again.
And God forbid if that day comes, the blood of dead Americans will be on the hands of Barack Hussein Obama and the terrorist appeasing Democrat party.
