instead of attacking this man with criminal actions, we would have been much better off to offer him immunity and a full pardon for the information we needed. That way we wouldn't have hurt him and still got the info we needed. Bush Co. should be throw in jail for the rest of their life for their actions against these people

The man was a partner in the 911 attacks. He will get no pardon from a Republican administration.

maybe Obama should pardon him now as an act of good faith to the muslim community to apologize for our cruel actions

Why the hell would we pardon a 9/11 planner? You can't trust anything he says.

The Bush administration was shamefully incompetent and criminally inept--on a good day.

I assume McCain can since he was a pilot as well Daddy Bush since he was pilot too. I'll have to think about others.

Clinton's weren't any better seeing how much of this started up during the Clinton administrations. Even going back to Daddy Bush so there are a lot of people to blame for all this.

Looks like your dream of an al Qaeda attack on Obama's watch may not materialize--too bad for you.

After the first WTC attack in 1993, we went 8 years without another. No torture, no attack for a very long time, two wrongs will never make a right.

Why doesn't a college give him an honorary degree if he's going to be teaching our agents?

While it's great for us to learn all we can - I don't think KSM should be given a paid position ...

The idea that the enemy we are fighting now is so bad that we have to change our entire philosophy of interrogation, developed over several hundred years of practical use, is an insult to all who have gone before. Only the cowards of the W crime family could be so silly.

You probably need to read a bit more history than what is in your 8th grade child's text book. Name a war and we have taken more than a few liberties with our enemies. To suggest that we (or our allies) have universally and without fail conducted ourselves consistent with what are now known as the Geneva conventions is inaccurate. And there is plenty of Evidence (especially with Churchill and GB in WWII) that the apparatus of the administrations were aware of what was happening.

"During the harshest period of my interrogation I gave a lot of false information in order to satisfy what I believed the interrogators wished to hear in order to make the ill-treatment stop. I later told interrogators that their methods were stupid and counterproductive. I'm sure that the false information I was forced to invent in order to make the ill-treatment stop wasted a lot of their time," he said.

And that ends the debate -- the reason torture (or "harsh interrogation") doesn't work. And that's been known since the 1600's. Torture gets them to say what you want to hear (i.e., false confessions, forced "conversions").

And you believe whatever Rush Limbaugh tells you to believe.

What a genius. Not only did he figure out how to ground our air defenses, he destroyed four buildings (WTC 1, 2, 6 and 7) with just 2 planes!

I hope we use him in weapon design, he could save us hundreds of billions.

...let's not forget the 'plane' at the pentagon.

Let's see the Washington Post stories from the post WWII trials of the Japanese soldiers who were convicted of war crimes for waterboarding American GIs...I'm guessing that the Post didn't applaud the Japanese for their "creative" efforts in trying to gain information.

If waterboarding is OK, and apparently many think it is, then when will Rush and the rest of the Reichwing send an apology to the relatives of those Japanese soldiers?

Japanese were the looser.

"Japanese were the loser"
what does that have to do with comparing Japanese torturing prisoners with Americans torturing prisoners?
10:49 AM on 08/29/2009
Please go back and read the notes from those trials, then come back here and honestly try to make the case that they were tried, convicted and in some cases executed for waterboarding. In those cases, the waterboarding was an "off" day, when they were taking a respite from raping, sodomizing and live burials.

So that makes waterboarding the right thing to do then? why dooesn't someone try it on *you*, then you can tell us how it's really not that bad. Hey, I'd do it to my grandma. I'm sure she'd think it was just like having a spa facial.

Cause the soldiers were very pissed off at the Japanese soldiers. Plus it was a different time.
Thing is I don't care one iota about these terrorist, they are not even soldiers ,so the Geneva conventions doesn't apply.
What I can't understand is why you (and others like you) are more concerned with how these terrorist are treated but you probably don't even have thought for our soldiers who get captured or other Westerners who are kidnapped by these thugs. Look at how they treat our people and you are worried about how they are treated.
