The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Fascinating interview with John Yoo on the Daily Show

    Part 1:

    Part 3:
    http://www.thedailyshow.com/watch/th...nterview-pt--3

    One of the best Daily Show interviews I've seen. One might be expecting Jon Stewart to use this oppurtunity to further demonize the Bush Administration, but it's not the case in this interview at all.
    Jon Stewart is slightly douchey in the very first parts of the interview, but it gets really interesting, especially in part 3. It addresses some of the more abstract and not easily politicized aspects of what's going on with the "war on terror".

    If you had the choice of waterboarding a terrorist and getting information that prevented a 9/11 type attack or not waterboarding a terrorist and a 9/11 attack happened b/c you didn't waterboard, which would you rather have done? I think that answer is simple.

    Come on! That's not the debate.

    This interview is touching on a range of much more complicated issues.

    I'd like think conservatives, of all people, would be more concerned about the limits of executive power.

    This isn't about some tree hugging hippy getting all butt-hurt because a terrorist had its feelings hurt.

    I've been watching Jon Stewart hammer away at this for 5 years and that is what my question is directed towards. Not the interview or the issues of Executive powers, and as Yoo said everyone was complicit here, COngress and Judicial could have ended things real quickly, but they didn't.

    You're completely missing the point of this post. My intention was to actually spark discussion about a topic that doesn't fall neatly into typical left-right attitudes. I don't care who thinks who is at fault.

    I'm genuinely curious to see what the ideas and attitudes people have about the bigger picture.

    Then what is the point of the post? What do you mean when you say bigger picture?
