I am sure those dead bodies dangling on the bridge in Fallujah or Daniel Pearl's head on a tray went right over your head.

    These people performing acts of terror aren't covered under the Geneva Convention nor should they be treated as human beings. Too bad you don't understand reality.
    Quite a few humans these days are "performing acts of terror". You guys seem oblivious to all those doing it EXCEPT for the arab variety.

    Yet you never answer the question posed, what actions would you support to get information out of someone who knew the exact location and timing for an explosive device that would like members of your family? You give these animals way too much credit as if they are human. What country do they represent? When did they sign the Geneva Convention? What kind of person chops off the head of another, flies planes into buildings, blows themselves up in crowded restaurants? You want us to ask them kindly over coffee what their next plan is?

    Like everything, you overstate the flaws. The 26 is not disputed.

    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.

    Which means noting. Read the law again.

    I can see where such denial would make you feel better, but there are other sources, especially on the two who died.

    He didn't really look. The decision was made not to go after a president on this type of thing. I disagree with that decision.

    I've answered it before. I don't want anyone to do ineffective things as torture. I want them to use effective methods. Not only that, where is your limit? What is someone said, you have to rape this child or you family might die, will you go there? Don't you see how you're being played? Doing immoral ineffective brutality doesn't save anyone.

    Our troops? What do you mean? You want the people committing a crime to sue the government for their committing a crime?

    My limit is to adhere to international law when it comes to foreign countries and the military in those countries, not terrorists. These people are animals and need to be treated as animals and no you didn't answer the question. What techniques would you condone to save a family member including your wife?
