The hack was in the spirit of exposing a a glaring and obvious vulnerability without doing real harm.

However, because it revealed email addresses and phone numbers of two prominent Democrats (Rahm Emanuel and Michael Bloomberg) and one of their sycophantic media mouthpieces (Diane Sawyer), the researcher will be going to prison for four years.

The accused read John Keats' The Fall of Hyperion and told reporters at a press conference, "I'm going to jail for doing arithmetic."

LOL "in the spirit"

The bank B&E was "in the spirit" of exposing physical security vulnerabilities.

eDarwinism.

I think you meant, "No one expects the Spanish Inquisition!".

Has the concern fell silent since Obama, or was it always just a Bush attack piece⸮

In ten years people won't even remember that America poured water on five terrorists. It's been over five years since the Spanish Inquisition and people still talk about it all the time. The horrors that were inflicted on people, and the number to whom it was done, make it beyond compare. It stands among the worst handful of atrocities in human history, both in its scale and its brutality. It will never be forgotten. Your tu quoque completely fails in all respects.

back then everybody was as evil as those church 'leaders'.

Today we should know better. Countries who have seen the light of human rights, do know better.

I think american intelligence agencies (and of course every other intelligence agency, mafia, etc) do way more than waterboarding. Maybe it's way harder than it looks, but I think to get beaten up or to get stabbed is definitely harder than waterboarding. I don't understand why so many people cry about this, especially because of all the worse shit that happens all day.

Well thats really sweet. It sounds very similar to "the light of god or the light of jesus"

Indeed it does.
Mental dwarfs will always have difficulty climbing to the moral high ground.

We could have responded to a terrorist attack by electing castrati socialists and retreating.
At least we put up a fight before electing a castrato socialist.

Which reminds me of a joke; A Muslim, a socialist, and an illegal immigrant walk in to a bar. Bartender says "Hello, Mr. President!"

the problem is that this is not a clear fight like germany vs france or USA vs russia. Moreover the russians (if it's what you mean with "socialists", because everyone knows that the sovjets, communists aren't neither marxists nor socialists. If you've read marx's book than you would see that this is quite different than the UDSSR) are more strict in hunting "terrorists".

What I've observed since I'm living in this world is that everyone calls his enemy a terrorist and everyone is desperately sure that he is good and the others are evil. And without dropping on conspiracy-9-11-shit-niveau I would be more surprised if some poorly armed al-quaida guys had managed to accomplish such an attack than if some of "your" own did it.

I don't read about US politics and maybe your right that obama etc is a liar, but this war on terrorist fuck is as well stupid propaganda. I mean this terrorists won't have even a little chance against the power of the US/Israeli forces. This reminds me of this funny judge dredd scene where stallone don't hide from the bullets because his enemies have such inferior weapons... :)

We are talking about torture camps around the world. That is what the USA stands for.

Yeah, and you stand for ... nothing.

You're ashamed to even admit what country you're from.
