whatever they feel is necessary? like taking over the government and lining americans up against walls to be shot, as long as it's necessary?
No, in the context of getting information from captured enemies. In line with the subject of this thread, not a huge leap.
I'm being semi-inciting.
I think to myself..what if one of my family members had been killed in the WTC, or beheaded in Iraq? How would I feel about a known "terrorist" being "tortured"..well..I might not be as sensitive as someone else.
So..we're allowed to shoot huge holes through people..but not allowed to put a wet cloth over their face?
I feel that I could just as easily argue for either side of the issue.
