18. Actually,

"I thought Obama promised to put an end to all this torture bullshit...I guess as long as its a Democrat administration, the government can do whatever it wants?"

...he did.

ENDING TORTURE = Three Torches
[ul][li]Ordered an end to the use of torture and cruel, inhuman, and degrading treatment, withdrew
flawed legal analysis used to justify torture and applied the Army Field Manual on interrogations
government wide.
[li]Abolished the CIA secret prisons.
[li]Says that “waterboarding is torture” and “contrary to America’s traditions… contrary to our ideals.”
[li]No reports of extraordinary rendition to torture or other cruelty under his administration.
[li]Failed to hold those responsible for past torture and other cruelty accountable; has blocked
alleged victims of torture from having their day in court.[/ul]http://www.aclulibertywatch.org/ALWCandidateReportCard.pdf


He just hasn't reformed the prison system,
