which those methods were used and provided a deeper
understanding of the al Qa'ida organization that was attacking this country.

the damage they have done to our interests far outweighed
whatever benefit they gave us and they are not essential
to our national security.

but there is no way of knowing whether the same information
could have been obtained through other means.

but I do not fault those who made the decisions at that time,
and I will absolutely defend those who carried out
the interrogations within the orders they were given.

Like an Eagle, I Soar High Above the Troubles of the World.

Do you not know that there comes a midnight hour
when every one has to throw off his mask?
Do you believe that life will always let itself be mocked?
Do you think you can slip away a little before midnight
in order to avoid this? Or are you not terrified by it?

that at last their true nature could not reveal itself;...
In every man there is something which to a certain degree
prevents him from becoming perfectly transparent to himself;
and this may be the case in so high a degree,
he may be so inexplicably woven into relationships of life
which extend far beyond himself that he almost cannot reveal himself.
But he who cannot reveal himself cannot love,
and he who cannot love is the most unhappy man of all.

What if happiness is one fresh grape, savored with gratitude?
What if happiness is in our oneness with all creation?
What if happiness is about enjoying life exactly as it comes to us -
without chasing after it?
What if happiness is something we CHOOSE...
regardless of our circumstances?
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
