Rick Perry On Saving the Lives of our Troops

During Saturday night’s debate between the current GOP hopefuls, Governor Rick Perry of Texas responded to congressman Ron Pauls accusations that waterboarding was torture.

..."Where there are people who would kill them (American soldiers) in a heartbeat, under any circumstances and use any technique that they can… For us not to have the ability to try to extract information from them, to save our young people’s lives, is a travesty. This is war! That’s what happens in war! And I am for using the techniques, not toruture, but using those techniques that we know will extract the information to save young American lives and I will be for it until I die. " ~ Rick Perry during the debate 11/12/2011

Wild Thing's comment........

I love how he spoke up to Ron Paul. I get so upset when idiots say waterboarding did not do any good when we have proof that it has.

Every single person who was waterboarded walked away from that on their own power. No bones were broken and nobody was beaten. Every American GI captured by Islamists is dead. In most cases, the bodies were so mutilated they could only be identified by DNA. Any American who thinks splashing water in the face of terrorists is torture is a disgusting POS.

American servicemen who go through SERE training are waterboarded. Obviously, to CBS journalists American GIs are not as important as muslim terrorists.

I think a little water boarding could help shake up some of our own, and is long overdue for many on shore and right here. It might shake off some of the wretched destructive insulated cushy faculty lounge lives of some of our own like this Suffolk University law professor in Boston who works every day within his miserable miscreant life to undermine this country from within:
