For many years, the Intelligence Services across the world have targeted possible terrorist suspects by their religion and by their religious beliefs. I believe that it is acceptable for them to do this because as proved in the past, it is mostly a certain extremists group in a particular religion who are involved in these terror attacks. I go on to argue that the intelligence services should have the right to detain suspects, who are involved in investigations, without scrutiny from the press and politicians, as well as other nations. It goes without saying that one mustn't condone the use of torture techniques, however inconspicuous it may be.

I negate that "It is acceptable for intelligence services to be able to profile possible terrorists"

I presume that first round is acceptance

Lost track of time, and writing this. I choose to not concede, but show my rebuttals in the next round.

Reasons for voting decision: FAIL DEBATE, as both sides dropped out... (checking the voting period debates, from Least To Most votes. By giving this one, it won't be prioritized in the system anymore.)
