Barbarians Inside the Gate
Water-boarding is morally wrong and, no, Americans should have never participated in it. But I am significantly more bothered by the fact that some 100 or so other detainees apparently died while in U.S. custody. I think that there needs to be a thorough investigation and if it can be proven that any of these individuals died as a result of enhanced interrogation techniques by CIA officers, then those individuals need to be punished and severely (I'm thinking at least ten years in prison). It's bad enough that we have to fight these frigging barbarians. We sure as hell shouldn't have to morph into them ourselves.
