    Umm... when have I done any of this?

    We shouldn't let America's enemies hamstring us with our own laws, especially when they'd nuke one of our cities without hesitation.

    Capture, exploit, and execute. That will send them a message...one they understand perfectly well.

    Why should their actions have any effect on how we conduct ourselves? We treated the Nazis fairly well most of the time.

    Because it benefits us, and is lawful. Ultitarian and legal. Those are the only valid arguments I'm aware of anymore.

    We treated the Nazis fairly well most of the time.
    You sure about that?

    Thank you Redress for once again proving your dishonesty by refusing to answer a direct question.

    I asked you one simple question. No tricks, no spin, just a simple question.

    Who is accusing them of punching the terrorist?

    Thats the question. Please answer it this time.

    You did your homework. I am so proud of you. To answer your question, the same people who are charging them with lying to the investigation, and in at least one case obstructing justice.

    Now let's see if you will answer a question: Do you really think that if they had not lied, they would be in the situation they are in? If they had said "yup, it was a mess, we had to rough him up a bit for our own safety", do you think any one would have prosecuted them? What always happens is the coverup is worse than the actual event.

    Something else to keep in mind. All the information we have on specifics beyond the charges is from the guys themselves and their families. The military is not, and cannot, comment on the case.
