    Let me put it context.

    The terrorists use torture.

    If we use the same indifference to humanity as the terrorists do, we are essentially no better then the enemy we are fighting.

    In fact we are worse by claiming we represent the best of humanity.

    You can't appease humanity. And it sounds like you're looking for people who were ordered to do something pay a price. I'm not sure I agree with you. And the enhanced interrogation techniques were stopped years ago.

    Note also that the Democrats refused to allow the minority report be released. I wonder why?

    We dont have their words because we dont have them under oath answering specific questions.

    It is the same indifference to humanity that matters.

    At least ISIS is honest in what it uses its methods for.

    We try to bull**** ourselves into believing that torture is somehow not a an act of cruelty.

    Calling what the US does "torture" is like calling your walk to your front porch a marathon.

    Then I guess they should have been asked so their reply could have been put into the record for the report.

    The report didn't call it "torture". Feinstein did not call it "torture". Why are you contradicting the report?
