Evidence Through Torture OK, Government Says


This is not news. My parents ate up the evidence that came out after the nuns tortured me in school. It was a given.

Lawyers for the Guantanamo prisoners say that some were held solely on evidence gained by torture. They said this violated fundamental fairness and due process standards in the U.S.

In response, the government conceded in court that the military panels who look at the prisoners can use evidence gained by torture in deciding their fate. They said that the detainees “have no constitutional rights enforceable in this court.” The government said torture is against U.S. policy, and subject to military discipline. Some U.S. soldiers in GITMO have been disciplined for misconduct, including a female interrogator who removed her blouse during questioning.

No, she was NOT wearing a cowboy hat, either!

    ACTUALLY........ terrorists aren't covered by any laws under the International Court, or the Geneva Convention. As far as "torture" goes.... what constitutes torture? Playing the Barney song 24/7 in the cells and bitch-slapping them around a little? If that's the case, SO FREAKIN' WHAT?? I could care less if Muhammed Ali-Akmhed-Salabi-Osama-Jalalabad gets roughed up a bit.. as long as it saves American lives by getting the information out of him.
