    We used water boarding on 3 people. Supposedly we received some valuable information from them that probably saved American lives. At the time it was sanctioned by the Government, now it isn't. I don't know about this former agent and why he would lie. Obviously we cannot believe anything he says now.

    I believe that we were justified in the use of enhanced measures, and I believe they were only used when it was thought that lives could be saved.

    Let me get this right..

    You guys hate corps for having the audacity to sell us things we like to buy but people who come here to harm American citizens deserve every ounce of compassion you have?

    just to set the record straight here...........curious, non-partisan viewers of this thread should note that virtually all of the liberals who frequent this forum ( including Dogbart), who are appalled about waterboarding ALSO consider the CIA playing Barney music during interrogations to be cruel and unacceptable torture!!! They are also the type of people who would sooner throw themselves off a 200 foot cliff before they offended anybody!!!!

    Just to set the record straight s0ns...................

    When US soldiers are tortured, don't the torturers think they are saving lives? American soldiers have information on tactics, capabilities, strengths and vulnerabilities.....by your logic, our soldiers can be tortured because the information will save lives

    The non torture rules are there to help protect our troops if they are captured.
    If you support torturing prisoners then you do not support our troops.

    Nope, just posting the fact at the very least he lied originally. So therefore his testimony that waterboarding was the magical cure all was bullshit.
