when you fight an unconventional enemy that doesn't adhere to geneva convention, you use unconventional methods to win. most people understand that, libs are the only ones that can't grasp it.
And in the process you lose your way and become worse than what you claim to despise.

I'm going to bet not a single one. I will also wager that many, many lives were permanently destroyed by these inhumane treatments, not just the tortured but the torturers. Some of the people that perpetrated these acts (torturers/murderers) walk among us now. One who orchestrated and pushed these travesties to American ideals lives just up the road from me! We need to bring all involved to justice.

The uniform that so many wear so proudly now has a stain, a deep stain.

If you're not crying for what happened to our country under the torture regime, you probably never loved your country to begin with. :smile

New article on waterboarding and other torture techniques under the Bush administration:

I'd be irate if another country was doing this to our soldiers. There's just no justification for the US doing crap like that.

We prosecuted our enemies for the same torture techniques in the past and now since we've used these techniques, they're somehow no longer torture!?? It's one thing to feel and make an argument that torture is justified (which I don't believe) but it's too Orwellian for me to change the meaning of words to fit a specific political position.

Hypothetical question for your guys against water boarding. Lets say a loved one was being held captive somewhere and you have standing in front of you a suspect who knows where your loved one is. Would you put your "torture" beliefs aside to find out the information about your loved one or would you give the suspect rights that he is not owed, 5th amendment knowledge and allow him to sit quiet.

I know the answer and so do you. You would do anything possible to rescue your loved one including pouring water in someone's nose. But I also know you will never admit you would "torture" someone because it is not a real suggestion.

Secondly, do you guys realize why these guys are being water boarded? because they were captured on a battlefield, often times surrendering AFTER shooting at our troops. They refused to give information that will help end the war sooner so ultimately they were removed from the combat zone to acquire the information that US Soldiers need to win the war.

Let our soldiers and CIA do the job to get these wars won.
