You don't read the newspaper do you?


Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

For the same reason we are not using bullets.

The question might actually be: What IS torture?
You need to define it much like you have to define is to some people.............

Sitting in an empty room for a few hours could be torture for some people that are used to having others around all the time.
Real torture is usually counter effective, as has been said before, the subject tells you what you want, not what you need to know, or so I’m told.

"Negotiating with Obama is like playing chess with a pigeon, the pigeon knocks over all the pieces, on the board and then struts around like it won the game."
Vladimir Putin

"They have gun control in Cuba. They have universal health care in Cuba. So why do they want to come here?"

Toture? Is that like using loud horns to get information?

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
