President Obama admitted in August that “we tortured some folks.” Now one of those folks has published a graphic account of what it meant to be on the receiving end of the torture.

"The American people expect us to only go to war as a last resort, & I intend to stay true to that wisdom." Except when I do so unilaterally

Obama: “No foreign nation should be able to…invade the privacy of American families.” When it’s our NSA, that’s acceptable. #SOTU

"As Americans, we respect human dignity... which is why I’ve prohibited torture." Except when we render prisoners to be tortured elsewhere

"A true artist takes no notice whatever of the public.” Oscar Wilde, witty and wise as ever, on artbuff.ly/1BCVZWZ

And so Individualism exercises no compulsion over man. On the contrary, it says to man that he should suffer no compulsion to be exercised over him. It does not try to force people to be good. It knows that people are good when they are let alone.

Expected some "Sniper" blowback, but it's amazing how angry people get when it's suggested that people other than Americans suffer in war.

Blessings on #KingAbdullah of #SaudiArabia. I wish he had succeeded in opening Mecca as it was in time of the Prophet. Maybe from above...
