Let The Liberal KSM Love Affair Begin

Will we soon get "Free KSM" shirts?

Khalid Sheik Mohammed, the alleged mastermind of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, was subjected to the CIA’s harshest interrogation methods while he was held in secret prisons around the world for more than three years, part of an interrogation regimen that the International Committee of the Red Cross has called "tantamount to torture," according to a New Yorker article to be published on the magazine’s Web site today.

In a 12-page article released yesterday, reporter Jane Mayer analyzes the development of the CIA’s secret interrogation techniques and writes that a confidential ICRC report to the U.S. government details Mohammed’s assertions that he was tortured by the CIA. Unnamed Washington sources told Mayer that Mohammed said he was held naked in his cell, questioned by female interrogators to humiliate him, attached to a dog leash and made to run into walls, and put in painful positions while chained to the floor. Mohammed also said he was "waterboarded" — a simulated drowning — in addition to being held in suffocating heat and painfully cold conditions. Mohammed’s captors also told him shortly after his arrest in March 2003: "We’re not going to kill you. But we’re going to take you to the very brink of your death and back," the article said.

Straight from the al Qaeda manual. Claim you were tortured, and watch the liberals go all squeemish.

Seriously, if he was tortured, why would we care? For those liberals who have forgotten, or are ignoring, KSM was one of the masterminds of the 9/11 bombing. You are not going to be able to fight these animals by saying "pretty please with sugar on top."

    Have you read the article ?
    One reason that we should care is because much of the information given under duress is factually wrong.
    As the aricle points out using the KGB method of torture is great for producing confessions, but very unreliable for intelligence.
    Now i suppose if you agreee with medieval torture as a punishment than that is different.
