As every human being is unique so is each terrorist, some are more depraved then others.

Interrogation techniques should vary from situation to situation.

When you unilaterally take one of the many tools to extract information in a certain circumstance, you're not that good of a poker player.

Questioning a potentail terrorist or admitted terrorist is like playing a cryptic game of poker.

Never divulge your hand.
Some of you are living in a Sept 10th time warped mentality.

You guys are stupidier than Neville Chamberlin:





Some seem to have mis placed liberal guilt coupled with complete niavity and are in way over your heads.

How do you know the person you are interrogating is a terrorist?

You don't, only if you know for sure-then you deal with it.

What's "for sure?"

Even if you gave them a trial, it's only beyond a reasonable doubt. Not for sure.

There's NO way of knowing for sure.

you know what? i can almost accept this. "terrorists" -- since we're being way, way vague here -- don't wear uniforms like German soldiers did, so i can understand how this might be a different situation.

however, this does not mean that "terrorists" -- again, so vague, who are we talking about here? -- are our playthings with which we may do whatever we choose when we capture them. they are human beings and thusly do not exist in some netherworld beyond the rule of law. the rule of law does apply to them, because the rule of law applies to us as their captors.

if you want to draw up new rules, fine, but you better go ahead and do so.

and even conceding these points, you have gotten no further in convincing me that "enhanced interrogation techniques" do ANYTHING at all to make us safer.

you think i'm a bleeding heart?

i think you're a racist sadist who's out to get silly kicks from inflicting pain on brown people who talk funny.

see? i can call people names -- instead of constructing arguments -- just as well as you can, my sexydiamond.

since you seem to be so fond of the forum rules, you should know which one you're breaking here.

Second of all, (italics are mine)

look, nobody is advocating blanket water-boarding or torture.

also, it wouldn't be too far of reach to conclude that:

you're a sloppy poker player.

read you-

Coming from the guy who just said:

Quote:
Yep, I'm sure if we post a memo that we won't ask tough questions
you don't even pay attention or understand the issue, no one said anything about not being able to question...

yet we're the dumb ones?

Diamond your record speaks for itself on this one.

but, you see, it's legalization means that it will become more and more and more common, as it will seek to justify it's existence.


[q]you're a sloppy poker player.[/q]
