TORTURE IS NOT A FORM OF INTERROGATION.
TORTURE DOES NOT PRODUCE RELIABLE INTELLIGENCE.
TORTURE DOES NOT PRODUCE VALID INTELIGENCE.
TORTURE INVALIDATES WHATEVER INTELLIGENCE WAS TO BE HAD FROM AN INDIVIDUAL.
THE PRACTICE OF TORTURE THEREFORE DECREASES NATIONAL SECURITY.
TORTURE REINFORCES THE POWER HELD BY THE SOCIOPATHIC WITH ARBITRARY ACTIONS THAT PRODUCE (JUSTIFIABLE) FEAR OF PROTEST IN THE CITIZEN POPULATION, MAKING RESISTANCE TO EVIL RULE UNLIKELY
TORTURE, BY PLACING ANY VALUE IN CONFESSIONS WHICH ARE INVALIDATED BY VIRTUE OF ITS USE, BY IMPLICATION REVEALS THAT THE POWER BY WHICH IT IS USED SEEKS NOT TRUTH FOR ITS AUTHORITY, BUT, IN BEING SO SATISFIED WITH SUCH A BLATANT AND OBSCENE FICTION, SEEKS ONLY EXPEDIENCE, WITH NO CONNECTION TO THE TRUTH REQUIRED AT ALL.
TORTURE THEREFORE CASTS INTO DOUBT THE MOST SACRED PHILOSOPHIES AND PRINCIPLES OF THE POWERS BY WHICH IT IS USED.
Man Who Was Waterboarded 183 Times,
Confesses Complete Responsibility for 9/11
and Will Be Executed
The Truth Seeker
April 5, 2012
It was reported on BBC News tonight that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four others will be charged with orchestrating the September 11 attacks.
What the report omitted to say was that many sources, including the New York Times (could any institution be less anti-establishment?), reported in April 2009 that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed had been waterboarded 183 times in Guantanano Bay.
The BBC report went on to say, rather comically in the circumstances, was that “Khalid Sheikh Mohammed admits everything relating to the 9/11 attacks from A to Z.”
Full confessions. No jury. We can expect one or perhaps two of the defendants to be given light sentences to project (laughably) an impression of fairness……that this is something other than a completely pre-arranged propaganda exercise that will also shut up for ever one or two people who might, in the long term, provide information that damages the real criminals responsible for 9/11.
Be seeing you.
