    Should the Hutaree militia be waterboarded?

    The Hutaree Militia is a religious domestic terrorist organization located in Michigan, Indiana, and Ohio. They planned to make terrorist attacks on local law enforcement and then do follow-up attacks at the funerals to kill more local law enforcement. This plot was stopped by the F.B.I. who arrested 9 of the members. Their beliefs in fundamentalist Christianity caused them to believe that they would need to serve as warriors for God against the Anti-Christ and plotted against the American government.

    So my question is this: since they are terrorists and since they are religious extremists and they planned a terrorist attack here in the United States, should they be waterboarded to see if they know of any other terrorist attacks being planned by any other terrorist organizations?

    Edit: I posted the questions the way I did because most right-wingers are for waterboarding Muslim terrorists, and I wanted to know what they felt about waterboarding Christian terrorists.

    With a Democrat in the White House, I'm just pleasantly surprised the government didn't burn down their house and kill their children.

    Waterboarding or any physical, and or most mental, torture are wrong.
    But a shot of truth serum, if this works, a different story.

    If there is reason to suspect they know about other terrorist attacks that are in the works, by all means. I am equal opportunity in my practice of waterboarding.

    I think everyone should get the water board at least once in their life.

    I'm against waterboarding peroid. I don't think we should ever do that to anyone.

    Re: Should the Hutaree militia be waterboarded?

    I think both groups should be waterboarded. If it saves lives, thwarts plans, and gives insight to future attacks then it should be implimented. Honestly I am for more than waterboarding, why not give them drugs that would make them feel "safe" and induce the truth or something? These "Christian" (by all means Christian in name only, not in practice) should be waterboarded along with Al Quaeda and any other terrorist.
