    Memos shed light on CIA use of sleep deprivation - Los Angeles Times
    This is NOT just about waterboarding.

    It doesn't matter now, does it? Let's hope that if we need to interrogate terrorists in the future, they comply with kinder and gentler techniques cause Obama has taken plan B off the table.

    Is it your considered opinion that the U.S. should EVER treat prisoners in the ways described in the article?

    Do you understand that even the CIA's inspector general was critical of these tactics?

    It matters that the United States abused detainees. Some of us care about the rule of law, and basic human decency.

    I can forgive the Bush administration for their bumbling but well-intentioned invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan. I cannot forgive them for undermining the constitution and the rule of law.

    If less harsh techniques gets information from suspects who are reasonably known to have information, then use it. If that doesn't work and it is fairly certain that they have knowledge of pertinent, imminent information then use harsher techniques. Some of us care about the human rights of innocent Americans prior to the human rights of terrorists. But what I think (and what you think) doesn't matter anyway. Harsh techniques are off the table. How many threads are there going to be on this anyway?

    Nothing new here... the ideological left is doing their level best to turn mass murdering slaughterers of the innocent, into VICTIMS!...

    It's subversion of the first order...
