Jesse Ventura ‘schools’ The View’s Elisabeth Hasselbeck on waterboarding / torture

From Rawstory.com:

“Ventura on The View: If waterboarding is fine, why dont cops do it?

By David Edwards and Stephen Webster

Published: May 18, 2009

Former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura, making a guest appearance on ABCs The View, gave co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck a lesson or two about the torture technique known as waterboarding.

Ventura, who underwent a barrage of torture techniques at the military Survival, Evade, Resist and Escape (SERE) school, confirmed for Hasselbeck that waterboarding is torture and not just an enhanced interrogation technique.

If waterboarding is okay, why dont we let our police do it to suspects to learn what they know? he asked to a chorus of applause.

Thats an interesting question, Hasselbeck said. I understand that question.

If waterboarding is okay, why didnt we waterboard [Timothy] McVeigh and [Terry] Nichols, the Oklahoma City bombers, to find out if there were more people involved? Whats your answer to that? he asked. We only seem to waterboard Muslims.

Thats an extremist statement, said Hasselbeck.

Aha! cheered Ventura. Have we waterboarded anybody else? Name me someone else weve waterboarded.

She could not, instead shifting focus to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) who has been criticized by Republicans for a seeming contradiction in disclosing what she knew about then-President Bushs torture program, and when.

They want her out because she lied? asked Ventura. Why didnt they ask for Bush and Cheney to go out when they lied about why we went into Iraq.

Obama Signs Executive Order Establishing Council of Governors

Airing Date Jn12, 2010

Some warn expansion of military involvement in domestic security could lead to end of United States as a Republic

An Obama executive order that creates a council of state governors who will work with the feds to expand military involvement in domestic security has stoked fears that the administration is stepping up preparations for martial law.

The order, which is entitled Establishment of the Council of Governors (PDF), creates a body of ten state governors directly appointed by Obama who will work with the federal government to help advance the synchronization and integration of State and Federal military activities in the United States.

The governors will liaise with officials from Northcom, Homeland Security, the National Guard as well as DoD officials from the Pentagon in order to strengthen further the partnership between the Federal Government and State governments, according to the executive order.

In October 2008, Northcom, a Unified Combatant Command of the United States military based out of Peterson AFB, Colorado Springs, was assigned the 3rd Infantry Divisions 1st Brigade Combat Team returning from Iraq. An alarming September 8 Army Times report which was later denied after it sparked controversy stated that the troops would be used by Northcom to deal with civil unrest and crowd control in the aftermath of a national emergency.

The Obama executive order states that governors will help advise the feds on National Guard, homeland defense, and civil support activities.

The fact that the order further blurs the lines between state and federal power, as well as greasing the skids for more military involvement in domestic affairs has stoked fears that Obama may be laying the groundwork for his promised national civilian security force.

Conservatives and libertarians responded to the announcement by expressing their suspicion that Obama is preparing to give governors their marching orders in targeting anti-government types that have long been characterized as a terrorist threat by the feds in numerous reports stretching back over a decade.

There is a definite purpose to this, wrote one commenter on the popular Free Republic website, The initial steps toward a domestic Civilian Security Force in each state, as called for by the fascisti during the campaign. It will be coordinated at the state level, under the authority of DHS and DoD and assorted agencies. The provision will be made for it to be federalized in an emergency, as is the National Guard.

This is a concrete step toward eliminating the independent authority and dissolving the sovereignty of the several States. It lays the groundwork for the end of the United States as a Republic, she adds.

Others warn that Obama could be preparing to cancel elections under the justification of a national emergency, a fear that was often expressed when Bush was in office but one that never materialized.

However, the executive order clearly represents another assault on Posse Comitatus, the 1878 law that bars the military from exercising domestic police powers, which was temporarily annulled by the 2006 John Warner National Defense Authorization Act before parts of it were later repealed.
