Because freedom can't protect itself
This is beyond disgusting.
Does the Unites States and the war mongers think they can end terrorism if the world thinks that they are no better
than Ben Laden.Do the the criminals that
commit these crimes and those that encourage them realise that while they remain safe brave soldiers who commited no crimes are going to die and be maimed
because of the hatred they have generated.
The war mongers love to proclaim their love for the troops but all they succeed
in doing is get the poor buggers killed.
You people are incredible. I don't know where you come from. Try doing something for a REAL cause, nevermind defending people that are trying to kill our citizens and troops. You make me sick. If people like you were around during WWII I don't think this great nation would be here today. Get a real job and quit trying to become "glorified" at the expense of somebody else's hardships. Disgusting.
What evidence do we have of torturing of this boy besides this article?
Why should we care what happens to these people. we should take what ever means to get what information out of these people. All these people want to do is kill us and they would kill the people how are trying to protect them if they get a chance
Scotty, if you read the linked articles, you will find that military court judges agreed that this child had been tortured until he confessed. I will presume that they had access to evidence we do not.
Dan, who are "these people" to whom you refer? Muslims, non-citizens? Terrorists? If the latter, this is the story of a 12 year old boy snatched off the streets and tortured until he confessed to a crime, not a terrorist.
I can't understand these people who defend torture A Gentleman mentioned about WW II has he never thought about all the Jews that were tortured by the Nazi's.
You can't fight terrorism with terrorism.
