    Here we see a plain gift of how the Democratic Party roles. Treat someone harshly in defense of our nation and we spend $44 million tax dollars documenting and criticizing. Get an ambassador killed, three fine other Americans, and lie about it without even an apology or single termination of employment.....

    Criminals. Thats what they are, plain and simple. The CIA is filled of many criminals. War criminals. Torture. Lying to the American public, hell even to themselves.

    Tim-
    So in other words, it's less about getting information and more about revenge.

    The U.S. position to not engage in torture is not intended to protect the humanity of those on the receiving end, it's to protect ours. Or are you saying that you have no problem with us sinking to their level?

    The Democratic Party "got an ambassador killed"? That's an interesting spin on Benghazi.

    You know, verify it and, if not true, up the discomfort. For example: the location of a bomb.

    If the information is already verified then you do not need torture. If you have a hunch and want the suspect to admit it then you are asking for confession. Under torture people can say/confess whatever you want. Thereby it does not work.

    Claims of torture not working are regarding confessions, not verifiable information.
    Assuming that one knows anything. What if they do not? They will tell you what you need to hear even though it ma bring them demise.

    Again you assume that the suspect knows where the bomb is. If they do not and would speak of a place just to stop torture you could verify it and come back to some more torture for no good reason.
