Like you, I think this war was the right policy. I voted for Bush and knowing what I know today, I would vote for him again. Nevertheless it has been apparent to me for a long time that the ongoing pattern of harsh, inhumane treatment of prisoners is the result of deliberate policy that originates at a high level within the administration, probably from the president himself.
Like most people, I have no experience as an interrogator. Therefore I have no idea whether inhumane techniques are effective. But I do know that at best, they are a tradeoff. Even if these techniques succeed at extracting useful information, they do it at a cost. The cost is moral corrosion of our country's soul and damage to our country's reputation.Comment Posted By Rob On 4.08.2005 @ 13:55
Ah, blessed silence from the unfunny one. That said, I agree: it would be horrendous if McCain-Feingold wound up limiting the speech of bloggers, even if that meant Chris Muir would finally shut up.Comment Posted By Rob On 5.03.2005 @ 05:17
Thanks for the compliment, Superhawk. Are you always this funny? Aptly named site, by the way.Comment Posted By Rob On 28.02.2005 @ 22:36
I almost made a sound reminiscent of laughter while reading 1 and 3. Almost.Comment Posted By Rob On 26.02.2005 @ 14:51
