You know you sound like a Nazi. No one deserves being tortured. No one.

If you want to gain some data and infos from a prisonner, physical torture is not very usefull.
Drugs or intimidation is far much better than physical torture. OTH, deprivation of sleeping is a usefull method. There is just one " problem ". It's not very quick and you have to wait.

So your whole excuse to torture is:
'Hey, they did first!'
...that's really silly.

First of all, I havent seen *proof* that there is any torture occurring in Guantanamo. What I do see is a program of controlling prisoners movements in a manner to maximize safety for both prisoners and personnel.
Second, due to advances in chemical and electronic interogation techniques, physical torture is obsolete. In addition, it is rather unreliable, as a prisoner may be willing to say anything, including false info, to get the torture to stop, and there is always the possibility of killing the prisoner before he does tell the truth.
