    I don't work for the government and I am not aware of their private conversations.

    I think it had more to do with being too strong a country to be willing to be subjected to kangaroo courts filled with agenda driven ideologues. We have our own courts where such matters can be adjudicated.

    Your link said they claim the practices did save lives.
    You can look at results objectively. What they say must have a result that all can see. That has always been the trouble with what they say. There has never been anything anyone could point to.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    We have commited acts that proove we are just as barbaric as any terrorist.

    If the governments won't bring the torturers to justice, maybe someone else will.
    Waterboarding is the same as beheading in your eyes? How about ill agree to get waterboarded if you agree to get beheaded?

    We have their words already. And we have the results. Objectively there is little else they can add.
