Sure, it's one thing to take a position when campaigning but now that he is in office and this decision was made you need to ask yourself if a) you think Obama is the same as Bush or b) after taking ownership of the problem they found something that, if released during a trial, actually would be a problem larger than defending the companies that cooperated?

In college I got paid an extraordinarily small amount of money to participate in a sleep deprivation test. 72 hrs without sleep, stimulants supplied as needed. At the end of the 72 hrs, I was then connected to a bundle of monitoring wires, hit with more stimulants and placed in a sensory deprivation tank. I do not know how long I was in the tank, I do not remember being removed from the tank. I also never found out what they were trying to prove! It was most definitely not worth the money.

Hi. I would like to apologize for everyone that read this post. As the administrator of said sleep deprivation test it was a mistake to allow the participant to access to the internet while still inside the sensory deprivation tank. Please do not inform Tehrasha that he was never removed from the tank.

Thank you.
