Torturing U.S. national security

Post #: 18
The harassment by the Obama administration of former Bush administration officials for their efforts in (successfully!) preventing terrorist attacks in the U.S. post-9/11 have gravely damaged U.S. national security.

Going forward who will dare to propose policy concerning the interrogation of terrorist prisoners knowing that their own president and congress may brand them as war criminals, and threaten them with economic ruin and possibly with jail time for their services to their county? And who will be foolish enough to actually carry out interrogations? As a result, terrorist prisoners will be free to spit in the faces of their captors when asked, very politely no doubt, for information about future attacks, the structure and capabilities of their organizations, and so on.

Articles by Thomas Sowell and Charles Krauthammer provide additional perspectives on this bizarre self-emasculation.
