SECRET PRISONS, SCARING TERRORISTS, HOW NASTY!
Dr. Laurie Roth Ph.D.
Well….. now we all know! That rude and hateful Bush administration did it again!!! They finally admitted to us all this week that they had kept many big time terrorists in foreign, CIA prisons. Granted, our President reminded us in his speech that there was no torture with these guys and the ongoing interrogations over the last several years had foiled many plots and attacks i.e. 2001 attacks with airplanes on the West Coast, 2004 targets in the United Kingdom, Plots in Pakistan, Heathrow Airport on and on.
Here is the scary part for some of you…………….He did admit that our CIA guys had occasionally scared or faked out the terrorists and that those techniques caused them to talk many times. Apparently, they had all been sent to GITMO and would be afforded some legal representation now.
Upon hearing all this from the President and the usual "freaking out" from the media and liberals about how terrorists are treated, my eyes rolled back in my head and I wondered a few things. Why do we, in a dangerous World War with constant threats against us do we have to even hear about the secret CIA prisons now??!! Can we not keep a few things private especially with a 5th column media that undoes so much good!!!? I was frankly relieved that our CIA wasn't toothless and actually had captured some high up bad guys and was interrogating them using fake out and fear techniques occasionally. You mean, not all our military and security types defending our country aren't first concerned about the terrorist's feelings and mental health? You mean being rude for a moment while interviewing Ted Bundy number 25 is actually done? Of course you and I couldn't possibly relate to getting rude with killers when instead we could call Oprah and book an interview and talk it all out.
I just have a simple question for you folks so committed to "nicy nice" and "peaceful techniques," What would you do if your 3 year old child had been kidnapped and buried alive by the local pervert and you had him sitting in your living room chair tied up. Your child had 10 minutes of air left and this guy knew exactly where your child was. What would you do? Bring him Lemonade? Ask him to talk about his childhood pain and anger? Have a Bible Study or my choice…..invent new ways to make him talk quickly, using new types of highly motivational torture! The outcome of this drama would be……..Pervert killer has nightmares and is full of fear now, and my child is alive and getting treated. What is more moral and peaceful, let my kid be tortured, raped and killed or let the pervert, serial killer have a few wounds to consider!?
I know, that is an extreme example and there is no evidence from our
military or CIA that torture happens but some of you think if you
aren't polite all the time and actually fake a bad guy out that is
torture. That mind set in this World War scares me more than many
of the terrorists! I have said it many times and I will say it again.
I would rather be rude and alive than polite and dead!
