    The problem with ‘stress interviewing’ is that people will tell you anything to get you to stop…..

    The US sends people to other countries to get them tortured. The Australian M Habib was sent (illegally) from Pakistan to Egypt to be tortured. There he told how he was going to fly a plane in 911, trained the hijackers in Karate ect...

    He has no flight experience or martial arts training however. He is just some muppet with a big mouth who annoyed some Pakistani military officials. For that he got 3 years in Gitmo….

    EDIT:

    I worry that the US disregarding these conventions (Geneva, no torture, right to a trial) will have a serious impact on those in the 'Coalition of the Willing' (or UN forces) captured in future engagements.

    How do you condemn them for torture now?


    >>Watch the O'Reilly show. Sure, he's an old bag who falls right of center, and yes he states his opinions quite clearly,

    And LOUDLY.

    >>but if you watch you'll find he forces the people he is interviewing to answer the questions instead of avoiding them.

    But does not allow people to give answers he disagrees with. Look at the incident with the son of a 911 victim, Glick I think.
    O'Reilly shouted him down when he tried to say that he did not agree with attacking Iraq and that the US supplied Osama Bin Laden (when he was fighting the USSR).

    Later O'Reilly defamed Glick (by saying Glick said GWB supported OBL).

    Glick can not sue as everybody knows O'Reilly is a pathological liar and therefore is immune did not know what he said was untrue......

    >>but it's a no-spin zone.

    LOL! All media is spun. That’s why no one believes main stream media anymore……

    What do you mean? the so called 'Coalition of the willing' forces that are captured are executed (brutally) anyway.
