SEAL Who Killed Bin Laden: ‘If You Can Walk Away As Soon As it Ends, It’s Not Torture’
I am by no means an expert on or will I pretend to know much about torture. This is only a personal view of what I know and how I feel on the subject.
Torture: There could be different degrees of torture much like there are different degrees of murder. Torture is not an act practiced only by the CIA or terrorists organizations. Mistreatment/torture is rampant worldwide. Violent people, abusers, spousal and sexual; just sick individuals hurting and killing others including domestic is torture to their victim.
I have seen video of individuals portrayed by aggressors as terrorists being water-boarded, whipped etc…….. Some of the video and stories of such torture I will admit were quite disturbing and appeared to go too far. As Americans I would hope we can demonstrate good morals and dignity even in our chaotic world. On the other hand, I am human, it disturbs me greatly when I see video of Americans and others beheaded by people who have no morals or dignity that hide behind a false religion.
The CIA, I am sure occasionally uses desperate means during desperate times. Is it right? I guess it depends, if it were my son who was beheaded or killed on 911, I may want vengeance and justice under desperate means as well. I may take a “Do whatever it takes” attitude to find and punish those responsible.
Its difficult, where do we draw and say “do not cross the line”? How effective are the tactics of the CIA?
One other thought, the CIA report that came out yesterday cost the tax payers 40 million dollars. Will that report change anything? Was it worth 40 million? It was “investigated” by Democrats only. It’s a government report, and we know how accurate and honest those have been!!!
