Remember when Obama, his mass media and liberals used to rage every single day about Rendition, torture and Gitmo? Whatever happened to that? It seems they're all cool with it, as long as it's their guy doing it.

Renditions continue under Obama, despite due-process concerns

“In a way, rendition has become even more important than before,” said Clara Gutteridge, director of the London-based Equal Justice Forum, a human rights group that investigates national security cases and that opposes the practice.

Because of the secrecy involved, it is not known how many renditions have taken place during Obama’s first term. But his administration has not disavowed the practice. In 2009, a White House task force on interrogation and detainee transfers recommended that the government be allowed to continue using renditions, but with greater oversight, so that suspects were not subject to harsh interrogation techniques, as some were during the George W. Bush administration.


The article is of course a sniveling defense of their dear leader.

Politicians will say what they think people want to hear in order to get elected. Then, once in office, they only care about lining their pockets and securing their own financial future. People dont go into politics for the people. They go in for the power and money.

Right, but the media used to rage about it nightly, along with shills like Jon Stewart. What happened? I thought the world hated us because of Gitmo and rendition? What happened to all that world outrage?

I wish these parties would just admit their hypocrites and only raged because the MSM told them too.

OK, this is one I'm unfamiliar with. What's a "rendition"?

here you go.

en.wikipedia.org...


The term "torture by proxy" is used by some critics to describe situations in which the U.S. has transferred suspected terrorists to countries known to employ torture. It has been alleged that torture has been employed with the knowledge or acquiescence of the United States (a transfer of anyone to anywhere for the purpose of torture is a violation of US law), although Condoleezza Rice (then the United States Secretary of State) stated that:[2]

Same thing goes whenever there is a republican president with the "homeless".

Republican president? Stories non-stop on America's homeless.

Democrat president? *crickets*
