I've got to tell you, I'm all for it. The more info we get out of the detainees could save countless lives. They aren't just going to talk, we have to make them talk. Reasonable torture should be acceptable. If you read the logs you'll see that when the Mohammed al Qahtani, the detainee written about in the logs, became dehydrated, painstaking care was taken to assure that his health was cared for. From the article:
A 24-Hour Time Out: But a much more serious problem develops on Dec. 7: a medical corpsman reports that al-Qahtani is becoming seriously dehydrated, the result of his refusal to take water regularly. He is given an IV drip, and a doctor is summoned. An unprecedented 24-hour time out is called, but even as al-Qahtani is put under a doctor’s care, music is played to “prevent detainee from sleeping.” Nine hours later, a medical corpsman checks al-Qahtani’s pulse and finds it “unusually slow.” An electrocardiogram is administered by a doctor, and after al-Qahtani is transferred to a hospital, a CT scan is performed. A second doctor is consulted. Al-Qahtani’s heartbeat is regular but slow: 35 beats a minute. He is placed in isolation and hooked up to a heart monitor, TIME reports.
When is the last time you heard of a prisoner from Syria or Iran having their heart monitored? More than that, when was the last time a Gitmo detainee had their head chopped off on national tv? America needs to show that we will fight for our lives with unrelenting force, yet at the same time our restraint must remain intact. And it has.
Liberals who cry foul over the methods being used at Gitmo must have their motives examined. My personal thoughts are that they seriously have it in for America. That's right, some liberals really do hate America. Keep in mind none of us should give the U.S. a free pass. We make mistakes like any nation. Individual soldiers get angry and possibly cross the line, And who can even blame them? All I know is that so far I can see nothing wrong with the methods being used at Gitmo.
