The real fear RE; the missing US soldier
We are pretty close to 3,000 daed, 30,000 seriously injured. Most of the time, another death would bring out a presidential yawn and shrug, unless the cameras were nearby.
This year, two things changed. Boy George signed into law the Military Commissions act, which gives him personal, unsupervised, king-like powers unheard of in our history. He also signed a signing statement that eviscerated the idea that his people can't torture anyone that they want.

If word gets out that our soldier is waterboarded, or tortured in the exact ways that Bush has approved, watch for a stomach turning reaction from the military, their familly and every rational person in this country. (Note, I said RATIONAL. That automatically excludes NeoConmen.)

1. A video of a US serviceperson getting waterboarded?
Talk about OCtober Suprise. KarlRove would be found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot if that shows up!

Goddess SAVE this Nation!!!

5. I thought the same thing....and the difference is that the kidnappers
will film it.....

This * cabal has no idea what they have unleashed....they should be held directly responsible for any torture of American soldiers, journalist and anyone else.
