By now everyone is aware of the torture report Democrats released the other day. Apparently, there's the claim in there that the water boarding didn't produce any useful information. But that's hard to believe. Many people have previously said that the name of Osama bin Laden's chauffeur was obtained after a water boarding session. And that ultimately led to the Seal Team 6 raid on bin Laden's compound. It's hard to believe otherwise.
But that phrase, "It's not who we are," is a phony attempt by Dems to claim some higher moral ground. It's propaganda. When the release of the report itself is expected to put Americans at risk then the prudent thing would have been not to release it.
It was an attempt to make Republicans, and the Bush Administration in particular, look bad. It was pure partisan politics. Shameful.
