Understood: Some on this board differ from others in that some think torture is acceptable and necessary. There are others who are opposed to the use of torture under any circumstances (unless their daughter's boyfriend gets her pregnant). There is a third group that denies that the Pentagon has employed methods of torture in this so-called "War on Terror". I think their arguement can no longer hold water (pun intended) with this latest report. The Pentagon and the White House can no longer seriously make the claim that no prisoners have been tortured or treated inhumanely. For the record, I consider any type of imprisonment inhumane, but know that it is obviously necessary and warranted in cases of crimes. I now consider it a fact that our military government has used torture to the detriment of any cause they claim we are engaged in. It the very least, there has been no benefit gained from it. Real soldiers know that torture is counter-productive at best, and dangerous to our troops at worst. I agree with that position.
