4. TORTURE MAKES US SAFER?

UH, TORTURE INSURES PERPETUAL TERRORISM AGAINST THE TORTURERS FOREVER.

Torture does not produce good intelligence. Kalid Sheik was waterboarded 183 times! How could it be effective if you have to do it 183 times?

Torture creates blowback which can take the form of terrorism.

Torture by our American Government is one of the darkest spots in our history and is repugnant and makes me ashamed to be an American. Shame on all of us who did not stand and fight against our government about this!

It's ignorant and stupid besides.

Our practice of torture makes us pretty much on the same moral level as terrorists.

We are a nation of mean and stupid hypocrites! What do we have to be proud of if we torture? Where is our basis to tell others to do whats right if we practice a form of terrorism ourselves?
