    They're not trained to resist sleep depreivation,food deprivation, or electric shock.

    I guess this settles the debate on whether or not waterboarding works. Saved lives, caught terrorist. Good thing really.
    How many other people were waterboarded and didn't lead to any real information? I mean, you can't speak to any of the statistics; you cherry pick one circumstance and say "Huzzah! Waterboarding is great". It's fairly absurd.

    Waterboarding should be discouraged for general questioning and encouraged when American lives are involved.

    Did anybody think that not all terrorists are alike? One might talk if you just look at him wrong and another might hold secrets to his grave but to say that waterboarding won't work for a single terrorist is assinine at best.

    I assume you argue to torture them all for the chance it may work on one?

    All of these individuals have stated that KSM talked, because he was tortured and conventional interrogation methods had failed.
    Need to read carefully. . .

    Cite evidence (from an authoritative source who is free to speak his mind) that waterboarding caused KSM to talk, or that anything he said directly contributed to OBL's death (assuming the raid happened as the US described it).
    Panetta works for the govt and is therefore unable to speak freely.

    The other 4 are not torture experts, psychologists, nor even igs. They are merely bureaucratic heads whose credibility is in shambles given their stance on Iraq WMDs.

    It's hard to believe that they're telling the truth when they've lied in the past and their statements are directly contradicted by the people who actually did the interrogations.

    Yes they are--they know that all they have to do to make it stop is tell the igs some bs that sounds plausible. The 'ol Princess Leia trick.

    Good 'ol cia--the bastion of truth. . .

    A former top CIA official pleaded guilty yesterday to lying to Congress about the Reagan administration's secret deals involving arms for Iran and money for the Nicaraguan contras.

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.
