Do you want the interrogators to do EVERYTHING to get info fast, which may safe the lives of dozens or hundreds of US servicement, or do you want to worry about the rights of the terrorists and the hell with our servicemen?

With all due respect, building human pyramids, writing slurs on their bare skin, and posing them in mock sexual acts have nothing to do with getting information in a timely manner.

If it were just a case of sticking a gun in guys mouth to get life-saving info that is needed "RIGHT F'n NOW", then they'd have my blessing.

This is a case of sheer stupidity, and this kind of humiliating treatment tends to make prisoners clam-up rather than open-up. They defeated their own purpose and handed the enemy a propaganda victory they never could have achieved on their own.

If they did what they are accused of, they need to be punished, hard. I say that as a former Army officer. And whoever was their immediate supervisor needs to get the ax, too.

Here's where it seems to get muddy. Who were the "interrogators"? It sounds as if they were contractors. I've read similar information in the Brit press--that the interrogators were contractors from two different U.S. companies hired by the Pentagon.

Since I know that our U.S. military knows well the rules and regs of the Geneva Convention, I'm really wondering about these contractors and what influence they may have had on this atrocity and the soldiers who committed it.
