Somebody who “gets” it regarding “torture”

Its hard four me too find people who right as good well ass me, butt 911when I dew, eye just gett out the weigh and kwote them: 

Gregory Kane ended his article in the Washington Examiner thusly:”…Perhaps Obama, instead of piously intoning that America “does not torture,” should instead tell the world, specifically terrorists, that from now on the nation will invoke the great African-American Prime Directive of “Don’t start nothing, won’t be nothing.” Because once you start something, then anything goes. So from now on, we won’t have to fret when guys like Mohammed and Zubaydah get waterboarded. After all, they would have been warned in advance. (And won’t someone point out that Mohammed and Zubaydah got off a lot easier than those poor souls trapped in the Twin Towers on Sept. 11, 2001?) If we don’t want to go with the Great African-American Prime Directive, perhaps we can go with one less known. I can’t recall who said it or where I read it, but it goes something like this: If it’s worth fighting for, it’s worth fighting dirty for.”
