Although it's called enhanced interrogation techniques. it's best to say out loud what it really is. Torture. Waterboarding, Putting a drill against ones head, force feeding through the anus, hanging people by their wrists. Is torture allowed?

Christin--This space is to short to deal with most of what you said, so I will confine it the contradict of your first sentence with this. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/12/17/man-who...
contradiction with a "news" station links that is always full of propaganda. I bet their news stations are the same way. Two wrongs don't make a right. torture is torture. Justifications are made by all sides and cycle continues.
The old adage of, "To deny a truth serves only to enhance a lie." is quite fitting with regards your response.
except it's not a lie that both sides are engaging in inhumane acts of terror and torture - that's the real truth some people have trouble swallowing and want to justify their end of it, but it's wrong - period.
Fox news is not really a trustworthy source. (to put it mildly..) I think an eye for an eye a tooth for a tooth is a very simplistic way of life. By torturing your enemies you give them more reason to hate you.
As society grows decadent, so does the language. Torture becomes "enhanced interrogation techniques". With more prisoners than any other country, we call prisons "correctional facilities". Cheney/Bush should be tried by the world court.
You do not change religious believes by torture. Maybe they deserve it but it would not change them. Is education not a greater weapon then torture.
By using the same methods as the terrorists, aren't we terrorists our selves?
Peter--No. Our enemy does not waterboard, slap or hydrate, they burn alive, cut off heads, crucify and rape children. And I would believe that an attitude, such as yours, promotes such inhumane behavior. There must be a price paid for these atrociti
talking with your enemy promotes inhumane behaviour ? How would you ever end a war if not by talking.. Religious fanatics don't change their mind by torture on the contrary. But step by step education will. Only education overcomes fanaticism.
