The Catch

Look at this from Yahoo.com:

"A senior administration official said that fewer than 100 people have been detained under the CIA program, rejecting allegations that perhaps thousands have been held in secret prisons. With the transfer of the 14 detainees to Guantanamo, the CIA is no longer holding any suspects, the administration official said. He added, however, that the administration wants the program to continue."

So the Administration wants to continue a program where the CIA uses harsh interrogation techniques, but they say that no one is in the program? So why do they want to continue it, then?

Are you sure it isn't supposed to be classified information that they think we're stupid? I'd hate to comfort the enemy.

Hear that sound? The marching music and the clicking of thousands of jack boot heels in unison?

I think it is outside my door. I need to go check to see....

Those who flatly oppose torture are quick to employ it when they need to get information from a suspect.

When a pencil-neck geek is put in a position of having to get information quickly, he or she will think of and do things that would make Torquemada blush.
