I was listening to my 2nd favorite talk show host, Jason Lewis, on the way to Charlotte last night. During his show, he mentioned the news concerning the killing of Al Qaeda’s #2 guy. I’ll get to Mr. Lewis’ main point in a second, it has to do with the double standard in the war on terror. But first, I wanna more fully clarify my stance on “enhanced interrogation techniques”, oftentimes known as “torture.”
As I type this it strikes me as possible that people hear “enhanced interrogation techniques” in the same way that I hear “kinetic military action.”
In battle and in ship wrecks the call is the same, “Women and children first.” We know it. We expect it.
And this is because we have come to expect that the women and the children are victims of the evils and brutality of the world. They are innocent and as such, should be spared the atrocities of life.
There are, however, people who fit in the NOT women and children space. These are people who are not innocent of said atrocities. Who are actors. Who willingly participate in the leveling evil and wickedness upon the world.
I think that taking a suspected criminal into custody and slamming his fingers in th desk drawer to find out who the murderer is is okay.
I think that keeping a suspected terrorist awake for 48 hours in order to get him to tell me where the other terrorists are is is okay to.
The Left doesn’t.
The latest fabrication of the Left is Rumsfeld and his “view” that enhanced interrogation methods don’t work.
Let’s see what he says:
Sounds like Rumsfeld is clear.
“Unquestionably it works … It produced an enormous amount of very very valuable intelligence information.”
I’m not sayin’ – I’m just sayin’
