New Army Rules May Snarl Talks With McCain on Detainee Issue - New York Times

New Army Rules May Snarl Talks With McCain on Detainee Issue - New York Times

Why doesn't this administration listen to an experienced voice of reason regarding the torture issue?

One obvious point made by Senator McCain: our servicemen will undoubtedly fight in future wars... If we sanction torture -- in any form -- say, by the CIA, then POWS in that future war may be turned over to the enemy's 'intelligence services' and receive similar treatment.

Torture doesn't work... It's bad policy and immoral. Moreover, I'm sick of the self-proclaimed morals-and-values crowd undermining the very principles on which the republic was founded.

Are u talking about McCain?

McCain wrote of being "broken" twice in his book - Faith of Our Fathers... However, how could the N Vietnamese tell the lies from the truth?

That's always the problem with information obtained from torture.

It's goes against everything we are (supposedly) fighting for and is immoral.

And this administrations lieral use of the practice points out the fact that they have neither values nor morals.
