You are operating under the impression that I give a flying rat's a$$ about your opinion. The facts are that my views here today echo well-settled law, international law, military law, and the Law Of Armed Conflict. That you are unaware of this, or of the standards contained in these codes, is not my problem. My problem is your incessant, infantile personal attacks in support of your fragile ego. Go get an education; go read a p hucking BOOK; go do your own research and then prove my commetns incorrect. Or f off and die. Don't care which. Have a nice day.

Oh, so you now admit that you used my "toys"? Good for you, but I doubt it. You didn't serve in the Navy sweeping mines or as a AF Pilot, nor at the NORAD center in Cheyenne Mountain.

There it is, Mr. Ad Hominem. According to you, my sons were tortured, and they beg to differ. Whom shall I believe? That is the crux of the debate. So nice of you there lying flat on your back allowing me to walk away from your embarrassment.

And I didn't realize that chihuahuas ever needed to be chained in the first place. Thanks for the education.

Is this the best you have? How sad and pathetic you are. You obviously had your lack of knowledge exposed here by me, and your massive arrogant ego can't handle it. Disrespect for my service and title? Really? Would you like to try and back that up by hitting me with your college degrees? Didn't think so. As a gentleman, I will allow you to walk away from this embarrassment, as it is obvious you don't have the first clue about what you're talking about. In future, you would be well served to defer to my obvious genius-as I am clearly smarter than you. Go make your toys that I once used to train others, and leave the serious business outlined here to your betters.

Ooooh! - big sarge thumps his chest! What's a matter - didn't you like the tools that I made for YOU to play with? Maybe they didn't trust you with any.

Still hot and heavy with the ad hominems, huh? So, anybody who disagrees with you should die? LoL, what a gentleman you are! It goes along with your obvious genius.

Poor puppy! Time for another distemper shot.
In "Zero Dark Thirty," the movie about the killing of Osama bin Laden, one of the first scenes shows a terrorist being waterboarded, where useful information gets extracted. The movie thus asserts the controversial practice leads to actionable intelligence.

Not only was former President George W. Bush criticized for "authorizing torture," his critics argued that "torture doesn't work." During the 2008 presidential campaign, then-Sen. Barack Obama said: "Torture is how you get bad information, not good intelligence. ... No more secret authorization of methods like simulated drowning. When I am President, America will once again be the country that stands up...
