First off link it, hearsay does not qualify as fact, next, we are not discussing the behavior of "ally" troops.  I have NEVER seen any article of our allies or our troops beheading their captives or cutting their genitals and shoving them down our captives throat!  This discussion was specifically regarding our troops and the behavior of our enemies.  You seem hell bent on moral equivocating.


Well, My Lai comes to mind.  No heads cut off, but I think that's a distinction without a difference.  And I read once of a group of American soldiers in Viet Nam playing soccer with the severed head of a VC.

Actually, I am hell bent on preserving America's right to the moral high ground when it comes to torture.  You aren't, but that's fine with me.

I guess what we need are women running CIA torture black sites.



***

Haspel signed off on the illegal destruction of the Thai black site torture evidence.

She is a criminal and should never receive Congressional confirmation.

Which only means, of course, that she is a shoo-in.

Indeed.

And it will be cheered by those who think of themselves as defenders of limited government.

Truth.

Oh, and it's not torture, it's "enhanced interrogation techniques"...more right wing PC speak!

I wish her the best. It’s a significant job with great responsibility.

My guess is none on this board, or at least those have posted so far, have ever personally been in a position where their role is to extract information from an enemy combatant
, especially when the info is time sensitive.

I wonder if you caught one of two people in a remote area breaking into your cabin and the one took off in a car with your child, if you first reaction would be to run out and try to find some beer and cigs.



I have.

I’ve read what you said your resume was. I’m not referring to basic interrogation training which every combat soldier gets. I’m talking about the very few who do this strictly for a living and work with the highest profile/highest intel targets.

The story has been redacted.  She never was over the waterboarding.  Story came from a Soros funded site. Why am I not surprised.

That sounds like fake news to me.
