Re: “Foster's Garage

Fosters is first rate and honest. If Gary or his guys cannot fix it or there is someone better in town, they will tell you. Check out the Google reviews, all 5 stars. Many Downtown folks will tell you the same thing, best garage in Little Rock.

Re: “UPDATE II: Echols blasts Baldwin in new book

Maybe they should ask Miskelley what the actual truth is in this confusion between Echols and Baldwin. Neuroglider, what was Miskelley's incentive to start talking to the State Police on his ride from Corning, Rector (or whatever small town it was) and then returning to give testimony on a tape recorder against the advice of his attorney? Remember, this was over 100 miles from the West Memphis Police. Sounds like a guilty conscience to me.

Re: “Value of torture in bin Laden hunt: Not much

Max, I don't see how you can ignore the following story that was published by several credible news sources:
WASHINGTON - Officials say CIA interrogators in secret overseas prisons developed the first strands of information that ultimately led to the killing of Osama bin Laden.
Current and former U.S. officials say that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the mastermind of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, provided the nom de guerre of one of bin Laden's most trusted aides. The CIA got similar information from Mohammed's successor, Abu Faraj al-Libi. Both were subjected to harsh interrogation tactics inside CIA prisons in Poland and Romania.
The news is sure to reignite debate over whether the now-closed interrogation and detention program was successful. Former president George W. Bush authorized the CIA to use the harshest interrogation tactics in U.S. history. President Barack Obama closed the prison system.

It is obvious that it took several years to nail down his exact location and Bush deserves some credit. In my opinion, all conventional interrogation agreements can be thrown out the window when terrorists kill about 3,000 innocent civilians. I bet the men and women jumping out of the World Trade Centers on September 11 would agree with me.
