    I said it was torture because it is commonly identified as torture. Where I believe I differ from some of the others on that list is that I am not opposed to using it in certain instances.

    If a regular interrogator water boarded someone in the field it would pretty much end their career. Only certain people can/ or are authorized to do this.

    If water boarding cured cancer I'd say go for it.

    I have given it a try, as have thousands of other US servicemembers.

    The same, I am aware that torture is not the best way to get accurate information. I think the development of chemical interrogation techniques and drugs is the better way to go.

    No offense, but you haven't. Those who run the program have stated clearly before congress they only give a taste and not the real thing. Sorry.

    How about if you had sex with another man might save a life, would you do? I've asked others, to which I haven't seen an answer yet, but where is your line? Forget that you're not likely to ever get any good information with torture, but if we go that far, where will you not go?

    Do you think it's wrong to kill an innocent child? What if you had to kill an innocent to save a loved one's life? Would you feel differently about it?
