Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: What! You too? I thought I was the only one.

Time will tell if the reports that the CIA has established network of "shadow prisons" are indeed the truth. If they do exist, I think it's important to remember that these prisons were established with the full support of the Bush Administration.

Let's be clear here. The America I love does not torture. Period. But, but, Qaida, but rape rooms, but heads chopped off, but bodies burned in Fallujah. My response to that: so flippin what? There once was a guy called Vlad the Impaler who shoved stakes up people's asses. People have done a lot of bad, bad stuff in this world, and they'll continue to do it, as the behavior of certain knife-wielding Muslim fanatics unfortunately attests. But guess what? America does not belong in this group. America doesn't pull out people's toenails. America's POWs don't die while in captivity. America doesn't behead people with lawnmower blades.

In caps so the slow among us will understand: WE ARE THE GOOD GUYS.
