    Yes, the Geneva Convention should be followed, but if deviations are required for national security, then it'd be foolhardy not to deviate on occasion. Soldiers have to live in the world as it is not as it should be or as desired by non-combatants.

    It's only acceptable if we know, for a fact, they have verifiable information.

    This validates what many of us knew years ago. Many have written about it and Kiriakou has gone to prison for telling the public about it.

    This government is totally out of control.

    We won't know what he knows, until we smack him around a little.

    Tim-

    The enemy?

    By what court have they been deemed an "enemy?" The say so of a resentful goat herder?

    Oh yeah, keep that country safe with secret torturing and lies...condone it until they come for you.


    Remind me again how "hope and change" has created the most open and accountable administration in history.

    Tim-


    Yeah, after a few hours of waterboarding I'd be happy to give you up.


    So long as you get information, that's good enough, accuracy doesn't matter, the facts and the studies from as far back as Nazi Germany showing torture produces more fabricated intel than not, you're good to go, to keep those terrorists away.

    After 13 years of continuous warfare you'd think that the might of the greatest war machine in the history of the world would have managed to kill them off by now.....but there's that accuracy thing again.....

    Plenty of idiots here like to lable all republicans with a broad brush so its only fair the DNC take the blame; its leaders failed those in Benghazi, got them killed, then lied about it to cover themselves for the pending election, and I could say that in one line where as the same democraps spent $44,000,000 to write a report b & m about harsh interrogation tactics. The hypocrisy of the DNC and anyone that defends them in this is pathetic.

    I don't get why people continually dog the C.I.A. and U.S. for having previously used torture when there are plenty of other offenders that seemingly skate by without a single condemnation.

    Russia, Libya, Syria, China (who also has slaves), Brazil, India (who also has slaves), Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iran, North Korea, South Africa, Saudi Arabia, Israel, Iraq, Lebanon, Ethiopia, Mexico, Philippines…

    They *all* torture, and there are *more* that can be listed. Where's the outrage?
