Former FBI interrogator Jack Cloonan spills the beans to Foreign Policy Magazine about the techniques he used on top al-Qaida operatives. Cloonan explains that the ticking-time-bomb scenario often used to rationalize torture is a myth and that waterboarding only motivates the enemy to get revenge—even if it takes a generation.

In this clip, Cloonan says the TV show “24” has perpetuated a myth about interrogation, and that harsh techniques enhance the reputation of the victim and motivate terrorists:


Chalk another one up for media. Selling torture like toothpaste. And too many people are buying...

Bush is the "Commander-guy-Decider-Vetoer...and #1 ASSHOLE! :evil:

[url=http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/23526436/]Bush vetoes bill banning waterboarding
CIA needs this kind of 'valuable' tool to prevent attacks, Bush says

[/url]

"The bill Congress sent me would take away one of the most valuable tools in the war on terror," Bush said in his weekly radio address taped for broadcast Saturday. "So today I vetoed it," Bush said.

Bush is a Zionist puppet. They seem fond of water boarding their eternal enemy. :twisted:

One of the most powerful and valuable tools that Congress has is the ability to override a veto. It is essential that Congress at the very least attempt an override this time. Watch very carefully how your Congress Critters vote and remind them they're up for re-election this November. This MUST be brought up in the Senate where all can see McSame flip flop again.
