    Re: John McCain CIA Torture Report Senate Speech

    I agree with President GW Bush.

    I agree with Vice-President Dick Cheney.

    I agree with the leadership of the CIA.

    These are all honorable men, doing honorable things at a time when America needed such leadership.

    As Vice-President Cheney said recently, "these agents deserve commendation, not criticism".

    All that said, I'm glad the report was released.

    What it shows is that you'll do or say anything to escape the torture, even if you have no relevant information. So in that sense, it is a HORRIBLE method of gathering intelligence. But if you want to torture to inflict terror, then yes, it works.

    Yes it does.

    No doubt it does torture a person.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    I suppose we can agree to disagree on this. Sometimes bad people must have bad things done to them. I am grateful that we have people willing to take these steps in order to protect us.


    The Marxist and his henchmen have damaged the US. This is disgusting. And McCain? The Senator from McCain? He stood with our enemies, the Democrats today.

    It amazes me that there is this rather large segment of the population that still thinks torture works. How many centuries has the world practiced torture? How is it possible that there is this rather large segment of the population ignorant of it's failure?

    It certainly adds stress to ones minute. After a half dozen times I bet most people would gladly have a polite discussion with interrogators.

    There's nothing honourable about giving orders to torture people. You idea of being honourable is truly ****ed up.

    I cannot speak to torture. But disorientation, fear, yeah, they work.

    There is really nothing I can say to someone that still believes in the ethics of centuries past that wouldn't be breaking the rules.
