  • I agree. I happen to think that Obama's method is much less torturing. Sic the Seals on them. That takes care of it.

  • "The U.S. using torture is an invitation for other countries to torture our soldiers."

    True and I agree we should just behead those suspected of wrong doing as they behead our people.

    "Our FBI refuses to torture"
    I am sure they let you in on every thing they do and since they are part of our government we know they would not lie to us.

  • The U.S. using torture is an invitation for other countries to torture our soldiers.  Then  they say "hey you do it."  Why should we lower our standards to those of these animals?

  • Worldhasgonecrazy,
    Thank you for your interest even though we don't agree. Sometimes I think I am alone in my concerns and endeavors. Believe me, I completely understand your point of view. I have family serving in Iraq and I've expressed my concerns on this issue with one of them  who I communicate with often. We disagree a little, but he knows where this all comes from for me. I always like to make issues like these personal. If the tables were turned and the enemy captured one of my family members, how would I want them treated? Also consider, not everyone we capture is actually guilty.  I feel we have to distiguish ourselves from the bad guys. We can't behave the way our enemy has. Some may not play by the rules, but shouldn't we? Shouldn't we have a higher standard than our enemy?  I believe we should. The America I believe in does not torure. Maybe I live in la-la land and expect more from people and our country. How can we justify these acts when we've prosecuted others for the exact same thing? It's wrong for others to do it, but we can? How is this OK?  I don't think we should ever compromise our moral standards because others' have. 
    Thanks again for your interest. I think we are on the same side , just see things differently.
    Peace. Don't sleep.

  • Our FBI refuses to torture, because it does not provide them with meaningful information..... Who an I to disagree with them?
    The lies about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, came from a tortured detainee, lying to get the CIA to stop torturing him.
    When we go down to the level of Third World countries we have lost..
