Is this another academic theory that sounds good on paper but wilts under the harsh light of reality?
Me thinks so, because to claim man can withstand torture and not reveal vital info has been blown to shreds with some terrorists we have captured... and I don't consider water boarding torture. Loud music... sleep deprivation... hot-cold syndrome either.
You can feel good about terrorists being protected as innocent civilians are executed.
I suspect the terrorists of the world like your kind and encourage you and Obama's type.
Tell me, is it moral to not do everything humanly possible to spare innocent men, women and children from a terrorists attack?
If the answer is "yes" then we side together. If not, then you seem to think a terrorists short term health is more important. Broken bones and ripped skin heals. Dead is dead.
It may seem cold, but these are the types of decisions Obama must make. Do we protect terrorists or innocent civilians?
