I wonder if the terrorists say "we can't fight these infidels with the rules of ordinary warfare as they are one billion times more powerful than us, but we can saw an old guys head off" and use that to justify what they do?

and maybe, possibly, they said to themselves "we can't fight these animals within the rules of the Geneva Convention, it's like bringing a knife to a gun fight".

i'm not sure how what rummy, bush and cheney "may" have said to each other has any baring on how torture should be handled by this country. if you're going to speculate, at least stay on topic.

They "should" have said, "Hey, it's illegal! We could get in trouble for this, but gosh darn it, we believe it's such a great idea we are willing to go to jail for doing it!"

Not, "Hey! Lets send them to Eastern Europe or Cuba and do it, it's like we never actually did it then, right? We're scot free!"

I think they said "We're not dealing with the Russians or the Germans or the Japanese here. We're dealing with people hell bent on killing as many innocent people as possible to make a statement for their cause. We better change our approach or else."

I'm going to assume that since this is what you latched onto that you agreed with everything else I said.
