    I couldn't agree more he showed that the secret prisons should remain secret and the inmates should be executed before wars end and before the American public even knew that they existed. Ex Parte Quirin.

    I would like to think America is a little bit above that.

    A) "Severe" is entirely subjective.

    B) Of course you're right we wouldn't want to put known terrorists under mental distress, it may hurt their feelings and we can't have that now can we?

    Well you apparently thought wrong I reitterate my "Ex Parte Quirin" reference.

    Your sentiments are nice but I wouldn't trade them for a drop of American blood.

    You don't count the first year when counting actual time passed.
    You sure? If the program starts operations in 2007, continues in 2008 and finishes up in 2009, that's three years. But that assumes a calender year which may not be true. Not that it matters anyways, as the program as cited was from 2006 to 2009 which is three fiscal years.

    You are talking about several different contracts and some were "awarded" in 2006. The article says nothing about anything being started till 2007 and finished in 2009.

    So it does matter.

    How much American blood was shed in revenge for the torture conducted in Iraq...or doesn't that count?
