@mountainmanlets see when we use drone attacks they are used to take out
people we do not have in our custody that have plans for and are trying to kill
Americans. They used torture to gain (unreliable) information from people we had
in custody and did not pose any threat to us. No not really confusing but thanks
mountain man. let me ask you a question, would you view the police
killing bank robber who currently has hostages, has shot and/or is threatening
to shot hostages the same way as you would view us torturing an alleged bank
robber that may or may not have information about an upcoming bank robbery? I think it is far to call for clear oversight and as much transparency
as possible however your claims that there is no difference falls flat.
No, Mountanman, not confusing at all. At least not when rational thought is
Also, with just a click of the mouse, you will see that while enhanced
interrogation may have produced a lead, way back in 2004, it was investigative
work and not torture that ultimately led to Bin Laden. I don't believe in
torture - I think we are better than that - but apparently you do. You have
your opinion; I have mine. Maybe we can just agree to disagree on that point!
That's fine. I would expect them to defend their practices. Doesn't
mean it's truthful. Or do you now trust the government?
@ Xscribe. The director of the CIA disagrees with you and so does bin Laden,
Not really confusing: Torture is.. well, torture. A drone attack is most
likely instant. There's also no evidence that enhanced interrogation,
torture, resulted in any real intelligence. However, there is plenty of
evidence that when there was a rapport established with prisoners and they were
treated like human beings, much more real and usable intelligence was obtained.
Now, that might be confusing to some, but it really makes a lot of sense for
those who actually think about it for just a second.
Enhanced interrogation to obtain intelligence to save innocent lives is immoral
"torture" but killing people with drones is ok? Confusing isn't it?
Anyone against drones... please see your nearest Army recruiter.
