Bush Gives Order For New Interrogation Methods


cbs2.com

(AP) WASHINGTON While defending the right of the U.S. to detain and question terrorism suspects, President Bush is clarifying rules about their treatment. He signed an executive order Friday applicable to both the military and the CIA imposing explicit limitations on interrogation techniques and conditions of confinement.

The order prohibits acts of violence comparable to murder, torture, mutilation and cruel and inhuman treatment, reports CBS News White House correspondent Mark Knoller.

It's about time.
Part of me says this is a step in the right direction,
but I can't help but think the military and the CIA
will do what they want.

Will this new executive order make a significant impact?
Any thoughts or questions?

It was my understanding that the US government didn't use torture... Why is this needed then?

You're kidding right?



All in all while this may be a good thing, there are a few loopholes, like sleep deprivation,
water boarding.

In all reality this should'nt have needed to be made as it is, since it's only a quasi-legal series
of semantics that has given this administration the right to torture.

Yeah, we don't torture anyone.
The Prez just likes to make laws about things we never do just in case.

Oh well, no more murder and mutilation... bah.

Hush my friend you don't want ATS to debate our government littler dirty secrets?


Oh, my bad, we have been doing that for a long time.


Remember people the death can not tell their stories.

They just have to take the prisonners and send them to another ring of ``secret prisons`` in another country like they always do... or send them to Dulce/Area 51 to be eaten by aliens
