SF soldier submits to waterboarding to prove a point


#62

Unless he is waterboarded in the same exact manner as the “terrorist” was, and as many times as the “terrorist” was it isn’t a fair test.

Seriously though it is a stupid sideshow stunt that is totally irrelevant to the decision process to confirm Haspel.

If we had Congressional backbone and moral fortitude Haspel would never be confirmed. But I see no way that she will not be confirmed.


#63

There was.


#64

It absolutely happens. I guess you’ve erased Abu Ghraib from your memory banks.


#65

the “What If” defense.


#66

LOL, that was perversion, not torture. Who gave them the power to do that?


#67

Do you think torture is useful tool?


#68

Oh and amateurs.


#69

I know it is. Any tool is useful in the right application.


#70

Same thing could happen.

Bush administration…


#71

Since it is all based on emotion and motivated reasoning, it’s hardly irrelevant.


#72

how far would you take it?


#73

Of course it could, and probably will.

No it didn’t.


#74

Me personally?


#75

Not the “tools” that are trying to make torture an American value.


#76

Your the President, how far would you take it.


#77

You are simply wrong.


#78

Yes, those tools also.

Even extra-judicial murder of US citizens.


#79

I didn’t agree with that. Wrong tree.


#80

also are we only talking about waterboarding “Terrorist” or can the FBI do it to domestic criminals?


#81

Slippery slope.
