What the F? Seriously, WTF?

Have you talked to all the people who been tortured? I mean WTF? Is this for real? Can somebody tell me, is this for real? Am I reading this correctly. God this political section is a riot!

I can actually picture it right now; Sean Hannity telling his sheeple, "The ones in Iraq actually liked to be tortured. They even lined up for it like waiting for Thunder Mountain in Disney World! These liberal scum think torture is wrong, but it actually a delightful experience."

Whats a riot is that your claiming oz is wrong, while questioning if they are right, and you of course have no knowledge whatsoever either way, unless your now claiming you've talked to people who have been "tortured"..

I can find more "stories" saying torture works for every story you post saying it doesnt..

God. this forum is really a riot. Are we really going to get into a argument if people like torture or not? LOL. Seriously dude, I got a lighting design to work on. I can't sit here arguing over if people actually like to be tortured or not with highly intellectual individuals like yourself. It just isn't a productive way to spend the day.

If you torture someone, and put them thru intense, and immediate, excruciating pain, so bad that they cannot even see straight, they will blurt out anything, and you will waste time trying to validate their blathering.

Waterboarding, sleep deprivation, uncomfortable positions, Barry Manalow music, these do not fit that same template. So if you are peddling "waterboarding is torture" and is equal to the final scenes of the movie Braveheart, try again.

Like never entered into it,what was stated was torture is ineffective and unreliable, which I disagree with.

You seem to want to bring morals into it when we aren't discussing the morality of the issue but whether it works.

That's not what the CIA memos that were released say.

The CIA conducts the interrogations, not the FBI.
