History Lesson On Torture For President Obama

Obama quoted Winston Churchill and his WWII strategy last week in defense of his policy to eliminate enhanced interrogation tactics. Obama claimed that Churchill was anti-torture.

O'Reilly did some research and uncovered some facts about Churchill's policy. "Enough with the platitudes, Mr, President," says O'Reilly "it is not against American values to protect ourselves!"

He wanted to use poison gas on Germans, but was stopped by his advisers.

The Royal Air Force routinely bombed non-military targets.

The British operated interrogation centers where Germans were beaten, sleep deprived and threatened with death.

Alas, when did the Left and especially President Obama care anything about the facts.

Also: the president must have forgotten about these German prisoners at Bad Nenndorf, near Hanover:

For almost 60 years, the evidence of Britain's clandestine torture programme in postwar Germany has lain hidden in the government's files. Harrowing photographs of young men who had survived being systematically starved, as well as beaten, deprived of sleep and exposed to extreme cold, were considered too shocking to be seen.
