    So since 3 guys were 'tortured' how did they come up with thsi 'study'.....

    If the guys who killed my friends are depressed I am happy, I just wish we could have placed them in a skyscraper and have it fall on them...

    Psychological Torture for me is looking at pictures of Pelosi, Schumer, Reid and the new one The Bag Lady, Sotomayo, when these bastards "GRIN" they scare the crap out of me, if I woke up in the middle of the night and Sotomayo was standing in my bedroom GRINNING I would Diarrhea all over the walls and ceiling.

    Specifically in regard to Gitmo, it's been well documented that many of the prisoners were never charged with anything beyond suspicion. Regardless, the debate in this forum has been about America's traditional moral position on torture, and those apologists' who nitpick over various levels of torture and argue in particular that waterboarding has no lasting effect.

    So now basically, you're stating torture is OK?

    3 people were waterboarded, I for one is glad they were waterboarded, if they have 'lingering effects' that is fine with me.

    PTSDT is different for different people.. and there are a whole bunch of intangibles here, have done a lot of work with folks with PTSDT in the 90's... some suffered horrific abuse and it had minimal impact on their lives.. others suffered less and they became emotional cripples.. so there are a lot of other "inner" factors... the reality is that it is long lasting..

    On a personal note, a kid I knew well from the institution, died in my arms on Friday, April 13, 1982.. he was one of the first Puerto Rican kids I had the opportunity to know well, there is not a day I do not see his face and the ropeburns on his neck.. kind of get a little shock daily, I know it will never go away.. so PTSDT means different things for different people. It does not impair my functioning, but it effects my view of the world...

    IF WATERBOARDING 3 CAMEL F'ERS IS TORTURE THEN YES I AM STATING IT IS OKAY.

    my personal opinion especially in regard to the mastermind of the 9-11 attacks is here should of had the most heinous torture possible. maybe we should have forced him to make the decision between jumping off the 82nd floor or being burned to death. do you want us to give him a f'ing cookie? would that be okay with you. does your vagina hurt when you read stories of his waterboarding? he should have burned alive slowly for 5 years.

    Well considering their victims families suffer for life also then it's fitting that they suffer forever ... who gives a crap ... not me.

    I'd rather be tortured ... with perhaps the prospect of a trial rather than be a victim of their acts ... those people died with no trial ... the zionist thing, guilt by association = death.

    It's torture seeing posts by people who enjoy defending terrorists - who want to kill innocent men, women and children.

    It defies logic and it defies emotion ... the needs of the few outweigh the needs and freedoms of many. Do these same people realize that Obama had language inserted that left available the option of waterboarding in the future ... like our Congressmen ... they don't know how to read.

    The debate is is whether such torture causing permanent effects. Please stay focused and stop trying to spin the topic away from the fact that the US lowerd its standards in torturing anyone.

    The administration used waterboarding on 3 of thousands arrested ... many more thousands killed btw ... thousands of innocents yet no relentless threads about this.

    However ... great opinion piece by Prf. James Hill who points out that Obama has left the door open to use waterboarding and etc... if he so chooses. The left chooses to make believe this option does not exist ... but it still does.

    Bush authorized waterboarding on 3 prisoners for counterterrosim measures. Obama has left that door open. read the article ... decide for yourself because the media surely is not going to expose any of this.

    Does anyone really believe that only 3 people were waterboarded??? That has to be the biggest myth and lie of all time..

    Well BO released the reports and nothing the current administration say contradicts that.

    Do you think Obama is lying about questioning of prisioners during the Bush administration?

    Wow, I am suprised you would think Obama is lying about this.
