He who knows the least obeys the best.
But the reality is one guy was waterboarded and he deserved it.
And why cant you say if one life is saved? Thats exactly what happened.
The waterboarding, etc of terrorists was entirely legal. And democrats like Senator Dianne Feinstein were briefed and quite okay with it. At the time their attitude was: "Whatever it takes". The democrats also pushed the WMDs in Iraq narrative long before Bush and Cheney assumed office. The democrats were all in and did not want to miss out on any of the political credit for the fall of Saddam Hussein. It was only after it became clear that the insurgency that followed the take down of the Saddam regime was not going to go away quickly and the war was going to drag on longer that they suddenly pushed the scenario that they were against the war and the wmd narrative all along.
41 men targeted but 1,147 people killed: US drone strikes
A new analysis of the data available to the public about drone strikes, conducted by the human-rights group Reprieve, indicates that even when operators target specific individuals – the most focused effort of what Barack Obama calls “targeted killing” – they kill vastly more people than their targets, often needing to strike multiple times. Attempts to kill 41 men resulted in the deaths of an estimated 1,147 people, as of 24 November.
