Because if a 14 year old American were found in Afghanistan by a Taliban Patrol, and the 14 year old was holding an M-16, what do you think would happen?That said, I'll remember this when someone imprisons 14-year-old American. And gives him his due process. No problem Muslums!! No harm no foul.
Do I want to imprison innocents? No, if for no other reason that wasted money. Please, try and remember that the Govt. that apparently dropped the ball here (in the eyes of our left-leaners) is the very same Govt. the left continually wishes to give more power and more tax money too, and more control over big things like say, healthcare.
So tell me, if they screwed this us, why would I think they'll hadle my prostate any better?
I thought Obama was supposed to be a muslim?
What would lead to the Cubans exercising their sovereignty over the Bay?

It's an ineffective interrogation method, and it has been labeled as such by the CIA for decades.
I'm not against its use as a last resort in a true "ticking time bomb" situation, but its use as institutionalized standard practice is misguided and detrimental.
Again, I'll go back and say... One American life. That's all it needed to save.
Personally, even if what KSM gave up was crap, I'm glad he was waterboarded 180+ times. He deserves worse... But, according to those same CIA folks who labeled EIT ineffective, there's still the question of those memos Cheny had released. He wasn't lying, for once.
With all that money, they should be catching terrorists daily. The torture doesn't work. It is battlefield level psyop used to p1ss off or scare off the enemy.
Who has it killed that would not have otherwise been killed, and what is your proof of that?
Seems such a claim would be exceedingly hard to prove outside opinion, assuming one's opinion is that those fighting us would be less violent if Gitmo had never existed (and no other Prison existed?)
But what does that guy know. My money is on the hundreds of people who inhabit internet message boards and invoke the "ticking time bomb" argument. The lowest common denominator and basest human emotions are usually the best way to implement a intelligence program, I've found. Torture works so good that almost every American POW spilled their guts to their captors. It's a fact. Take me to your leader

I would contest an argument that any American Deaths would have not occured IF and ONLY IF, Gitmo Prison had never existed. If it wasn't Gitmo, it would be whatever Prison we used. If it wasn't the Prison, it's be the War itself. If not the War, just our existence, or history, or some other slight.
Again, it seems to me a very odd claim that U.S. Soldiers would be treated better if Gitmo hadn't existed.
"No, Mubar, we can;t behead this one, after all, the U.S. treats our prisoners well!"
