Ann, so, you like Urban Legends like throwing prisoners from helicopters....no one can find a documented case, but you keep talking about it, OK? thoughts from friends: "Never saw anyone dropped from a chopper, but I was told by an American interpreter that it was fairly standard procedure to take off with a prisoner, blindfold him in the air, and then fly down slowly to a three foot hover and push him out. Absolutely terrifying." Wouldn't it be more "immediate" to handle that sort of interrogation on the ground with an M16? Why waste time finding a willing pilot, loading the prisoners onto a helicopter, and getting to a good altitude? Why expose yourself and the crew to enemy fire?
