"Depending on your politics and your views on waterboarding, that may make these figures more relatable and human, their decisions that much more wrenching.
Or it may make them seem cowardly."


Well, I'm a bleeding-heart liberal, I despise waterboarding, and no, it doesn't make them seem cowardly. It makes them flawed people who were, like everyone else, afraid--and still does not excuse what they, or we as a nation, did.

/No real opinion on barbeque, so.

Franklin BBQ, Austin, Texas, baby.
Best in the US.

Blacks in Lockheart Texas.

I've been to Blacks many times. It's damn good, but it pales in comparison to Franklin.

I will have to put Franklin on my list then.

ArcadianRefugee: McGrits: Is this real barbecue where one cooks with indirect heat and smoke? Or is this the backyard party where people grill burgers and hotdogs?

Who cares? The real question is, which is the best style of barbecue? Texas? Carolina? Memphis? Kansas City?

So hungry...

/does Canada have a "BBQ" category?


We do, but it's just hot hogs cooked over a 6 foot bonfire while drinking at a provincial park during the May 2-4 long weekend. Not as tasty, but a lot of fun (especially when the first idiot decides to jump over the fire).

That said I would like to go to a CIA BBQ it would probably have a great spread. I can imagine an old KGB BBQ would have just had donkey ribs and cabbage rolls.

I can see a reasonable person agreeing or disagreeing with this, but for the OMG BUSH-HITLER derpers, you do realize this was only done to three people.  Three very high level very bad people.  Random goat herders caught up in a battle in a cave in Pakistan were not subjected to this.  Also, are you people aware that the worst thing that was done is waterboarding?  Which sounds terrifying and I'd not like to undergo it, but it's basically about the lightest form of "torture" I can imagine.  In fact, it sounds like a liberals wet dream idea of what torture should be.  We are not talking about chopping off fingers and breaking bones or electrical shock.

Other than really not liking Bush since 2000, I don't get the intensity of the hate over this.

I like Snow's and Smitty's more than Black's.  I am becoming partial to Pecan Lodge, but that is mainly because North Texas has very few legit BBQ places.  Franklin's is very good.

Kudo's for getting the brisket moist.  Most people think the best part is the flat.  Those people are stupid.  Though Franklin's lean brisket is better than most.

The government needs to do a better job of keeping secrets away from the fickle public.  Enhanced interrogation is a necessary aspect of the intelligence mission, but clearly, much of the public doesn't have the stomach to swallow those difficult truths.

As for the Austin Texas BBQ discussion, I have been to Louie Mueller's in Taylor. Damn good stuff.

Having now moved to Detroit, I am glad I can cook my own.

I went to Dallas in October.....I went to the Pecan Lodge...it.....changed me....

I used to hate brisket and wonder what all the fuss was about.

We stood in line in some damn farmer's market for over an hour and I was ready to not like it, and then i bit into that brisket; it was like a waterfall made of warm, velveteen blankets the color of liquid gold enrobed my tongue and rode it like a 5000 dollar hooker. It was amazing. I actually sat there, stunned after I was done and had to prepare myself for another bite. It was the only time in my life I truly appreciated fine food, and I have eaten Robuchon and Ducasse's finest offerings. I don't care if it is stupid, smoky caveman meat....that was as religious experience as this athiest has ever had.

I have seen God, and he is the non-English speaking, 50-year old Mexican who cooked that brisket at the Pecan Lodge.

I'm confused. Were the prisoners being barbecued as torture, or was he barbecuing while the torture was going on, or both? Or, is there another possibility that I haven't even considered?
