It isn't just the military that conducts interrogations that might seem unfair with regard to destruction and validity of evidence. In this thread:

www.abovetopsecret.com...

There was a video of a cop talking about how he conducts interviews. I had some questions that weren't answered there, eg:


Apparently, cops don't have to testify to anything that's said in a police interview, except what the prosecution deems beneficial to their case. Anything outside that scope, that the defense might want to ask, can be deemed as 'hearsay'.

Also, apparently cops can make video and audio tapes of interviews, transcribe them, then destroy the original tapes without making them available to the defense.


He talked about how he would record interviews, have them transcribed, and then wipe the original tapes with a magnet. If that happens, how can the transcriptions be determined to be accurate or complete?

So if we catch POWs, and you know they know something, are you saying we should pamper these guys?.
All im saying is, if it's known for sure these guys know something of major importance, we should be able to do whatever it takes to protect our own.
Even if that means getting a little physical with them.
And If we know before hand that they're not a major player, they should be shot on the battle field.


EXCEPT TORTURE DOESN'T WORK! Never has, never will. You can make someone admit they were on the grassy knoll and shot JFK if you torture them. You could get an 80 year old grandma admit she was behind the 9/11 attacks if you torture her.

Torture does nothing but create hate by the captured and the captured ones friends and family.

Then they should be shot on site and not held captive.
Do you honestly think these terrorist's would show you compassion?

I say a great movie the other night called "Iraq for sale" and it was very informing. I think viewing it would change some peoples minds about gitmo here.
