But who gets to decide who is guilty and who is innocent? Presumably as stated above, innocent people should never have been detained, questioned or
tortured in the first place.
These practices were resolved with the idea that all of them were criminals who were hiding something. Which obviously was not the case.
I don't really think it matters, It's not a matter of Guilty or Innocent. It's matter of humanitarian and civilized conduct. A certain respect
for the rules of engagement. There is a very fine line, warfare is harsh, there is no need to make it all the more horrible by practicing barbaric
behaviour in a country that "supposedly" gives the proper example to the rest of the world.
Do you wonder why terrorists have become increasingly violent and cunning in their activities? Because their enemy has done the same thing. We pride
ourselves on talking the road less traveled, on being the "Moral" fabric of our many societies, yet every day we hear about more torture, more in
humane treating of our fellow bretheren, enemy or not.
Nobody deserves to be treated that way, regardless of affilitation or offense.
