    Hmmm... I wonder what they would do when they're released, all those innocents.

    I wonder what will happen to them while they're in the torture chamber?

    So much for legal principles, eh allan.

    I wonder how much false and misleading information they get by torturing detainees.

    Torture has now entered the Alice-in-Wonderland lexicography so beloved of the Left in that 'torture' now means any method of obtaining information from a person suspected of being party to criminal and murderous activity - any method now apparently includes questioning whilst in detention.

    In other words, you have no argument to make that would not make you sound like a total crackpot.

    By the way, it is not questioning that the left objects to:

    As the Pentagon prepares to build a permanent prison at its Guantanamo naval base, the U.S. government continues to detain people indefinitely without charge or trial or without applying the Geneva Conventions. The Bush administration still rejects any serious inquiry into the mounting evidence that U.S. officials have tortured or mistreated prisoners at Guantanamo.

    “Guantanamo has become the Bermuda Triangle of human rights. Basic rights vanish there,” said Wendy Patten, U.S. Advocacy Director at Human Rights Watch. “By flouting international law in its treatment of detainees, the Bush administration has drawn worldwide criticism and undermined support for U.S. counterterrorism efforts.”

    I think the phrase "Bermuda triangle of human rights" perfectly sums things up djeb.
