Torture? Now this is an interrogation! (Video)

If you want information from a terrorist in America you need to say may I and please!

Or you could just give them to the Pakistanis to get it for you.

I don't know whether the member of the Taliban in the video below gave up the goods on where arms and ammunition were being hidden. Maybe he was able to hold on and maybe additional help was necessary to get him to talk.

However what I do know, is that this method of intelligence gathering being used by the Pakistanis will most likely be more effective than the tickle torture that is now mandated for use by the United States government. I am also certain that the Pakistanis have even more effective techniques in their arsenal.

Do you know what the Geneva Convention says?

"Any act by which severe pain or suffering, whether physical or mental, is intentionally inflicted on a person for such purposes as obtaining from him ... information or a confession, punishing him for an act he ... has committed or is suspected of having committed, or intimidating or coercing him..." (Wikipedia)

This is where we run into a problem

Our enemies don't follow the Geneva Convention and they do not fight a traditional war. What they understand is violence, the killing of innocents and a kill or be killed mentality. They understand Sharia Law and hold the belief that it should become the global government. Honor killings of daughters who have become too "Westernized" or who have "shamed" the family are committed, even here in the U.S.

Therefore, how do we get around this problem?

In yet another example of political correctness placing you in mortal danger, it is imperative for the United States to adapt to the enemy because this enemy sure as hell is not going to adapt to us.

Think about the war strategy of colonial times where the enemies would line up across from each other and open fire on the count of three. It was a genteel approach to war.

Now imagine that one side continued to fight this way while the other side started to utilize guerilla tactics, hiding behind trees and sneaking up from behind.

Who will win that war? Fast forward to today and understand the risks to fighting a genteel war against extremists!
