    Truth always comes out and should. The USA and our allies need to know where our tax dollars are going and the results of our policies. Our enemies already hate us. If new people start hating us it would be because they know the truth about what we do.

    I don't know. Let's see the photos and decide for ourselves.

    That sounds like a very good idea.

    Perhaps these include a few of the dead ones that didn't respond well to "enhanced interrogation.? Eh?

    Beaten, forced to eat food out of a toilet, sexually assaulted: New Details of Prison Abuse Emerge (washingtonpost.com)

    Also many people have died under our control as well while being "enhancedly interrogated"

    Recruitment, fund-raising, inspiration - you name it.

    Are you really unaware (for example) of the power that the Abu Ghraib pictures had in enabling AQI?

    You reap what you sow. When ISIS beheaded people it probably helped recruit people to join their opponents.

    Interrogation was not the pictures problem. That was naughty girly fun with the boys.
