    I am proud to be ahead of the curve on this issue and I commend Senator John McCain and Congressman Ron Paul for their steadfast opposition to torture. "Thinking that torture is wrong is not a liberal or conservative value - it is simply a value."

    Congratulations to President Obama for the gutsy call regarding the killing of Osama bin Laden. I didn’t know he had it in him. His campaign pledge of going into Pakistan unannounced – once met with derision by John McCain and the Republicans – was fulfilled and is precisely what it took to get the bastard.

In 1967 Ramirez-Sanchez was an eager recruit into Cuba's "guerrilla" (terror) training camps started by Che Guevara in 1959.

    The liquidation of Osama bin Laden is a cause for full-throated national celebration. It must also be the occasion for a redirection of our efforts to wage and win what has been misnamed “the War on Terrorism.” At last, we must recognize the struggle we are in for what it is – the War for the Free World – and begin taking all the steps necessary to win it, not just some of them.

    You can't reason someone out of something that he didn't get into by using reason in the first place. That's why it's so difficult to refute conspiracy theories with logic. Take the 9/11 Truthers conspiracy.
