Letter: Hypocritical Democrats cannot have it both ways

Hypocritical Democrats cannot have it both ways

The liberals and Democrats are on their moral high horses in chastising the previous administration for the use of enhanced interrogation tactics. They laud President Obama for his decision to eliminate future use of these techniques. Do they also admonish his increased use of drone strikes that kill innocent civilians and children? Do they condemn his decision to assassinate Osama bin Laden and pirates holding an American hostage? No, because they are hypocrites blinded by their political views.

Apparently these killings are morally justified when compared to enhanced interrogations. Seems we have to wait until terrorists do enough to justify killing them rather than interrogating them to uncover useful information. You can’t have it both ways.
