The Messiah's continuing lousy grasp of history

President Obama isn't exactly well-versed in history. In last night's "press conference" (how can only thirteen questions get asked in a whole freakin' hour??) Obama was asked whether waterboarding is torture. He didn't directly answer the question but said that Britain did not torture any Nazis during World War II.

Really? Even discounting these uncomfortable facts, there remains the highly ethically-challenged action of firebombing tens of thousands of German civilians during the war (Dresden).

Again I ask: How is this substantively different than waterboarding a heinous murderer like Khalid Sheik Mohammed?
