    Do you agree with the CIA tactics regarding torture?  Do you feel this is a necessary evil?

    Yahoo reported: When CIA interrogators were torturing accused Sept. 11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed at a secret prison in Poland in March 2003. The interrogators slapped Mohammed, denied him sleep, rehydrated him through his rectum, threatened to kill his children and waterboarded him 183 times to obtain info on Khan.
    My belief is the American public should not be privy to such information (CIA techniques).  Sometimes  measures that aren't nice or ethical are needed in order to keep America safe.  Every country practices these tactics to keep citizens safe. 
    What are your thoughts?

      Insanity. Why not simply lock you up and throw away the key. You'll be "safe," then.

      So, you condone murder, theft, drug peddling, lying and other unethical behavior, just to be safe?

      Sorry lone77star. If that is what is required to keeps billions safe. You would be completely correct. Would prefer ethical behavior and the chances for billions to be murdered?

      By condoning government breaking laws, you open the door to billions being murdered. Just what the Rockefellers and Rothschilds want.

    War is war, and war is hell. You would be shocked at what really goes on. The Geneva convention is thrown out the door. Saying that, look at the atrocities that have been used against the United states. Just take another look at what happened on 9/11 and tell me these men are even human.

      Wow! So, you're suggesting do evil, because others do it? What happened to turn the other cheek, or do you cherry pick your Christianity?

      9/11 was an inside job. The real terrorists were in Wall Street and Washington.

      lone--WOW!! And you are suggesting that for those who would now kill us, we should assist by extending our necks to faciliate the blade. I too, am a cherry picker and that cherry is principle, which you seem to be lacking.

      CJ, you have no imagination. You would rather commit crimes rather than solve the problems in an ethical manner. Assassinations of Americans, incarceration on trumped up charges (for patriots),... the crimes never end.

    One when is in a fight, to be fair, one cannot be confined by ropes while the other is not. Our enemy has no rules, no confining, alleged moralty that offers any form of civility. The only moral code that has any value in such a conflict, is to win.
    If we loose because we are not willing to fight, what have we gained. What great moral code will survive?

      CJ, this is the dumbest thing you've ever written. We've already lost by what you've said. All morality is flushed down the toilet. America is arresting whistleblowers. The criminals remain free and the heroes go to jail. Dumb!

    I'm appalled by this. Breaking the law to save the law? What crap! This is lunacy. This is being wishy washy to an extreme. By protecting America with this kind of criminality, they're destroying America.

    The psychopaths who own Wall Street, Washington, Madison Avenue and Hollywood would be happy to see their propaganda working so well on the deluded and gullible.

    9/11 was an inside job. Using it to justify all of these atrocities is part of the atrocity itself. You should be ashamed of yourself for suggesting that criminality is good if it protects us. Why don't we merely murder the rest of the planet, then America will be truly safe. Hogwash!

    That's just what the psychopaths want to hear. One of their recent movies (The Maze) made a point out of pushing the idea that "wicked is good." I see that they're accomplishing their brainwashing goals.

    The Iraq War was a hoax. No WMDs. The Afghani War was a hoax. Osama Bin Laden didn't have anything to do with 9/11, as he proclaimed in December, 2001.

    The late Aaron Russo was told by Nick Rockefeller 11 months before 9/11 that a big event would soon give us Iraq and Afghanistan. Rockefeller also said that this would give us a never-ending war on terror where you could never define a winner. Big paycheck for the military industrial complex while raging all manner of horrors on humanity.

    By your ignorance and self-concern, you are contributing to this wholesale criminality and crimes against humanity.

    The Rockefellers are also behind the Global Warming hoax. If you truly understood simple, high school physics, you'd know that Global Cooling is dangerous and potentially deadly, because of reduced rain and massive starvation.

    The Rockefellers and their bosses, the Rothschilds and their ilk, want to get rid of 90% of the human population to have a more manageable serfdom.

    Do you want to be a slave to the psychopathic elite? Continue with this crap. Keep pushing this logically fallacious lunacy.

    Ben Franklin wisely said over 200 years ago that those who give up liberty for a little security will deserve neither.

    Fear not man. Don't be so self-concerned that you give up your soul protecting your pitiful existence. Such self-concern is the root of all evil, and you're proving it. Be ashamed and repent!

    No evil is ever necessary. If you think it is, you are weak, selfish and unimaginative.

      Death by a thousand cuts. You allow torture, you will be tortured. You allow murder, you will be murdered.
