    Pretty much substantiates what most legal experts been saying all along. In as much as torturing these scum sucking bottom feeders of human feces can make us feel vindicated, it actually does more harm than good.

    From the legal perspective, torture is not allowed in the US, never has been and hopefully never will be. This is established in the constitution and was upheld by the courts at every level during the 8 years it was practiced under the enhanced rules of the Unitary Executive. (remember him?). The act was a response to the court rulings that the congress and president reaffirmed it.
    I see this Killer is another Saudi born and conditioned radical. These Warriors for God seem to all be Saudi's. Still can't figure out why we keep attacking the wrong countries on our "War on Terror".
    Anybody remember all the high profile cases LOST during the Unitary Executives Reign? I believe it was quite a few. Yardley is absolutely correct on this issue. We are a nation of laws. First and foremost. We can win this struggle without destroying our values and our way of life in the process. Thank God for our Justice system. I hope it survives the assault of the Right Wing over the next generation.

    Our laws are for American citizens, not scum sucking camel jockeys that believe blowing up innocent men, women and children will get them to heaven. Our laws are not for them. Look back in history and tell me when, of all the wars we have fought on foreign soil, did the enemy treat us according to any set of laws, including the geneva convention. I don't believe you can find one. Not WWI or WWII, not Korea or Vietnam, and not this war. You are correct about us being a nation of laws, but they should not extend to the battlefield in a foreign country.

    And terrorists should not be tried in a court of law. They should be tried in a military court, in front of jury of men and women who fought against them and dealt with swiftly. Last time I checked, .223 ammo was really cheap.

    I say just release the poor terrorist. Then, when he least expects it, have one of our drones or better yet one of our highly trained snipers send him on his way to his awaiting virgins. Case closed...many tax dollars saved.

    You have a point considering how Americans have been treated as POW's. I believe even the Brits were pretty bad to the Revolutionary POW's they captured. I have no sympathy for the Killers who we so foolishly call terrorists (as if there is some distinction).

    Somebody on this thread suggested sending them back to their own countries to let them deal with it. Guess we might find out if the Saudi's are actually allies. Since they all come from there, send them back for trial in their court system. I still say our military should be sitting smack in the middle of SA, not Iraq or Afghanistan. I suppose the money they pass around to the right circles in our Government and Wall Street gives them exemption.
