A lot of people seem to be getting upset about torture. What constitutes torture? Is giving someone a drug to make the talk torture? Any kind of shock or pain giving torture? Keeping them in a dark box. What?

Watching the Hildebeast and Janet Reno having sex while listening to Kanye West.

Torture: Something that is needed to help save american lives. If a few people get hurt saving american lives, no sweat off my sack.

See, that's the problem.
I got no issues with the methods we do now.
But...real, actual torture does not work.
All it does is make the torturee tell you what he thinks you want to hear.

Apparently, glaring at someone from across the room can now be considered torture.

In high school, I administrated a computer lab. No one could crack my password, and I would lock the computer on that site with the speakers turned up so that the entire room was filled with it. Their only recourse was to shut the computer off.

*Insert evil laugh*

Thats why you keep him around till after you verify the intel he or she has givin you. The validity of the intel should be in direct proportion to the amount of pain received afterwards.

Unfortunately, the new de facto definition of torture will be anything that could be remotely considered "degrading" by some dyed-in-the-wool liberal douchebag.
