    But that is EXACTLY what you would be doing if you didn't allow them to be tried in court. Do you honestly not see the similarity between this and the terrorists?

    Well I just googled it and apparently it's not even proven the Chinese ever used it. Mythbusters didn't think it had very untoward effects.

    While it sounds horribly ominous it sounds pretty tame and lame.

    I'm talking TERRORIST ATTACKS on American interests. Why is that comment so hard to wrap your head around?

    And this isn't about Bush or Clinton... it's about methods used and which worked! Clinton ran with one mindset, and the world seemed to approve of it. It however was flawed in that terrorist seemed to keep blowing **** up. The Kobar towers, the WTC, the USS Cole... 9/11 comes along and our leaders decide "okay, now we're serious". And guess what?

    Attacks on American soil 0.

    Attacks on American interest? Almost nil. Yes, you could say daily if you pull up Iraq, and I can grant that on a technicality, but it is a war/combat situation... so that cancels it all out.


    Many attacks were averted because of the more intense information gathering, from electronic to waterboarding three scum bags. Lives were saved, terrorist captured, all in all it proved effective.


    What's so hard to get about that?
    What, no ticking time bomb scenarios?

    No mushroom cloud fear mongering?

    No mention of how your God, Ronald Reagon, tucked tail and ran immediately after our marines were blown to hell in Lebanon?

    You're so happy asking everyone who thinks you're nutso "what rights we lost", answer me this riddle batbrain. What attack did any of that torturing prevent? I'll hold "your" head under water awaiting your reply since that won't cause you any pain or discomfort thus, is not technically torture.
    Thank You Barack Obama for Restoring Honor To The Presidency.
    President Obama will rank as one of our greatest presidents!

    Wow, look at all this seething anger. You have problems.

    I see you often mistake logical, fact based arguments for anger.
    Does that allow you to believe your position easier?

    Someone with a pic of our President on a Russian flag thinks "I" have problems?

Don't think this guys opinion speaks for all SOF personnel.
