    Because they walk in to towns, gather the men and boys and march them to a field, gun them all down or decapitate them, and sell their women and girls as sex slaves.

    But you are right, good thing for those townsfolk that ISIS never poured water up their noses or made them listen to loud rock music!

    That's not a reason. The terrorists could say the exact same thing. The bad US murdered so and so, ergo these other people deserve everything they get.

    This was all long before ISIS.

    That said, if you're basing the moral justification for waging a war on terrorists because you're not quite as bad as they are; then you're fighting a losing fight.

    The real difference between us an them is that we have laws that apply to everyone, not just the peasants. No one is above the law, and no one is beneath. Everyone gets their day in court. Everyone has a right to be treated fairly regardless of what they've done, who they are, and what they believe.

    Re: Senate panel releases scathing report on CIA interrogation...

    At first many on the right refused to call it torture. Now with all the relevations from this report, the waterboarding, the sexual abuse, forcing people to stand on their broken feet, killing a detainee, and much more 16 absolutely outrageous abuses detailed in the CIA torture report - Vox . Now the extreme right who are apologists are going with the card "they deserved the torture". That is ****ing disgusting on all the apologists part. Why cant you just admit when your country ****s up?

    "The bottom line is these techniques have hurt our image around the world, the damage they have done to our interests far outweighed whatever benefit they gave us and they are not essential to our national security."
    -Admiral Dennis C. Blair, Director of National Intelligence.

    And the Democrats in the House including Nancy Pelosi were well briefed on these enhanced interrogation techniques.
