I wonder if the young Somail pirate who is being brought to the U.S. to stand trial could use the president's statement to get out of his impending life sentence?

No I don't. I already know that Somali boy and all my ocusins (and yours) are so outta luck it ain't funny.

These are the people brother President is protecting from criminal prosecution. I love me some Rachel Maddow. She is even better than Olberman and Stewart for telling it like it is.
It seems to me that the only question that really needs to be asked is this. If someone subjected you or a family member to this type of treatment, would you consider it torture? If not, then somebody should immediately do so, IMHO.
