Rick Santorum = Chickenhawk!

This week’s “WTF?” comment comes from former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum.

On Tuesday, the possible Republican presidential candidate said that Arizona Senator John McCain doesn’t know how effective waterboarding and other harsh interrogation techniques can be. The Republican presidential contender insisted the tactics led the United States to al-Qaeda leader, Osama bin Laden.

“Everything I’ve read shows that we would not have gotten this information as to who this man was if it had not been gotten information from people who were subject to enhanced interrogation,” Santorum said. “And so this idea that we didn’t ask that question while Khalid Sheikh Mohammed was being waterboarded, he (McCain) doesn’t understand how enhanced interrogation works.

“I mean, you break somebody, and after they’re broken, they become cooperative. And that’s when we got this information. And one thing led to another, and led to another, and that’s how we ended up with bin Laden,” said Santorum.

He added: “Maybe McCain has better information than I do, but from what I’ve seen, it seems pretty clear that but for these cooperative witnesses who were cooperative as a result of enhanced interrogations, we would not have gotten bin Laden.”

John McCain spent 5 1/2 years in a POW camp, enduring the worst brutal treatment anyone can ever experience at the hands of the North Vietnamese! If anyone knows what torture is, it’s Senator McCain!

Santorum has never served in the armed forces, never experienced combat and certainly never experience “enhanced interrogation tactics”, a.k.a. torture! This is like someone with no experience telling someone with 20 years experience how to do their job!

The shit coming out of Santorum’s mouth is unbelievable and anyone who supports him for President should seriously have their head examined!
