The way I see it is, let's say we capture a terrorist that is part of a group and was planning an attack on downtown NYC. We capture him, yet the
bombs (or whatever weapon) is still out there. We know, since he is part of a group, that they are going to try this attack again.
If the terrorist believes in his attack THAT much, he will say nothing...even when offered a Get Out Of Jail Free card. However, if you are being
tortured, all you want is for it to stop. If you torture someone enough, they could eventually squeal on the rest of the group just because he can no
longer take the torture.
Yes, torture sounds terrible, and that is because it is. But the person had a choice...he could have NOT joined in on the attack on America and NOT
been in this situation at all!
The way I see it is, torture one man and save thousands, or let him be in comfort while thousands die.
(NOTE: I am trying to keep as civil as possible...no threatening, no bashing, etc.)
