CIA Holds Terror Suspects in Secret Prisons

CIA Holds Terror Suspects in Secret Prisons

Update in response to my pro-torture commentor:

Clueless about torture
"Sen. John McCain (news, bio, voting record), R-Ariz., who was tortured repeatedly during his 5� years of solitary confinement in North Vietnam, answers no: The tortured will say anything to stop the pain.

McCain's insight offers lessons for U.S. conduct in the war on terror: Abusing prisoners elicits intelligence of questionable worth. It also unquestionably undercuts American values and produces international revulsion.

McCain and a majority of senators from both parties understand this. The Bush administration still doesn't get it."

Good, it's darn near time that they held these animals somewhere. You can't defeat terrorism by notifying the media about every last little friggin thing we're doing to keep these idiots from blowing themselves up in a shopping mall somewhere. I do hope that they're using some of the tactics they would use on the captives that they hold or have held. Why in hell should we honor these bastards giving them any rights whatever?

Obviously you are unaware of the Geneva convention and the practices that should separate the leader of the free world from the supposed barbarians blowing themselves up in a shopping mall somewhere.

Study after study after study proves that torture does not work. If you torture me I'll tell you anything you want to hear. I'll tell you that it was me who sucked Clinton's dick.

Obviously your are a Republican because of your total disregard for the law and what's legal.

Probably also a Christian. It is not a cliche to think of all men (people) as brothers. If I believed in such a thing as a god, I wouldn't want it to bless only "America", but to bless all mankind. Wouldn't want to believe in a god that did otherwise. One of the prime ways governments or other entities get their soldiers to kill or torture another human being is to somehow convince the soldier that the human is evil or sub-human or "other". I heard over and over during the Vietnam War about how "they" don't value human life like we do (while napalming villages!!!). I have heard the same comment about Muslims a few times the last few years. Torture is abhorrent. Makes no difference if the previously so-called good guys are doing it.
