In general I stay away from writing anything political, this isn’t difficult cause I don’t care much for politics. However I was listening to Gregg and Michelle on Live97.1 (streaming audio rocks) and they were talking about the "torture"

that was being dealt to the terrorists there. I believe they called their mothers whores, made them wears bra's and called them homo's. Not the nicest things to do. Much nicer then blowing up innocent civilians, killing women and children, but still it's not friendly.

This produced some outcry among politicians, most notably Carl Levin, a Michigan Senator, who was outraged by this treatment. I'm outraged by the people who are outraged. These "people" don't deserve the same civility regular people do.

They gave up that luxury when they started cutting off the heads of POW's, blowing people up, and in general resorting to terrorist acts. I think we have to stop being so damned PC about everything. They should be happy that this is the extent of the "torture" and it wasn't worse.

I’m currently reading a book on Elie Cohen, the super spy for Israel in Syria, I'm up to the interrogation part, and I don't want to speak for him, but I bet that he wishes all that happened was that they called his mother a whore, and told him every one knows he is gay.

For some-one who doesn't like to talk about politics, you really hit the nail on head. Great post.

Which book you reading? Eli Cohen is my favorite spy.
And yeah, I'm sure he would rather have been humiliated then tortured to death. And even after they humiliated him, tortured him, killed him, humiliated his dead body, they could have at least given us back his body.

And lets not get started on the Israeli MIA's...

Or even the occasional journalist who ends up in the wrong hands...

for the people who think we're being too mean to the terrorists...let it be their husband or wife or son who gets killed by them and then ask them again if we're being too mean.

Oh, yeah. You are so right. It's not even in the same playing field as real torture, so those wacky liberals fighting for murderers' civil rights should get off their high horse and compare apples to apples, and beheadings, electric shock, rape, murdering children in front of parents, cutting off hands, and poking out eyeballs with red hot pokers to the same.

Here's a suggestion from IMAO on interrogation techniques:

Since everyone seems so sensitive on the issue, so here's what I propose as the new regulations for interrogating a terrorist:

* He will be asked to "please" give us information.

* If no information is given, he will then be asked to "pretty please" give us information.

* If there is still no response, he will finally be asked to "pretty please with sugar on top" give us information.

* Any further requesting would be badgering and could be construed as torture. If given court approval, though, the interrogator could offer to be the terrorist's "very best friend" in exchange for information.

There. That should make everyone happy.
