I’m getting sick and tired of these pinheads who want to keep on insisting we didn’t torture anyone.
I’ve heard the phrases “unpleasantness” and of course the old standby “enhanced interrogations” to describe what happened.
It’s one thing to argue if a method will, in fact, help us to gain vital information and can we legally justify using that method; it’s another to employ a euphemism for that method.
I suspect most of those who insist on sticking their heads in the sand have never worn a uniform in service to our country. I would suggest that we waterboard them, then ask them if they thought they were tortured.
Now, I have no way of knowing how far we are going to delve into this issue to hold certain individuals accountable; but let’s stop using flowery words to rationalize what we, in fact, used to supposedly make ourselves safe from a terrorist attack.
