The Daily Quote

"I don't know where the [Republican] claim comes that we are less safe... Most of those extreme interrogation techniques and waterboarding were done away within the Bush administration... In eight years the military commissions have put three people on trial. Two of them served relatively short sentences and are free. One guy is in jail. Meanwhile, the federal courts, our Article III, regular legal court system, has put dozens of terrorists in jail and they're fully capable of doing it. So the suggestion that somehow a military commission is the way to go isn't… borne out by the history of the military commissions… The nation is still at risk… But to suggest that somehow we have become much less safer because of the actions of the administration, I don't think are borne out by the facts.”
