Shepard Smith: 'We Are America! We Do Not F***ing Torture!'

April 23rd, 2009 11:08 AM

Fox News's Shepard Smith got into a heated debate over interrogation techniques Wednesday with colleagues Trace Gallagher and Judge Andrew Napolitano that resulted in the feisty host using an expletive I'm sure he wished he hadn't.

Appearing on FNC's webcast "The Strategy Room," Smith took issue with America using any interrogation method that could be deemed as torture regardless of whether or not it gave results and saved lives (video embedded below the fold, strong vulgarity warning):

"We are America! I don't give a rat's ass if it helps! We are America! We do not f***ing torture!"

Even if it helps save lives, Shep?

What if it saves the lives of folks close to you? Might that change your opinion?

It is indeed fascinating that the further we get from 9/11, more and more Americans are forgetting that we are indeed at war with terrorists.

Will it take another devastating attack on our homeland to wake such folk up?
