  • Waterboarding should be legal

    Waterboarding should be legal. Terrorist groups would do far worse things to Americans if they so desired information. For example ISIS. They cut heads off of Americans and they were just doing it just to prove a point. America should be using techniques such as waterboarding to prove that America does not mess around with terrorist.

  • Prevents further attacks

    Waterboarding is so cruel and painful that people will say information if they have it. It is true that some don't know anything but it is worth the risk to save lives of innocent people. Also it is so cruel and painful that some people who are thinking about becoming a terrorist will have to think that if they get captured this will happen to them. This will prevent some people from becoming a terrorist because of the fear of waterboarding

  • We need to find out more about terrorists to prevent more attacks.

    We need to find out more about terrorists when we interrogate them and waterboarding is one of the best ways to get them to talk. We have to stop terrorists from attacking countries and killing innocent civilians. A lot of people make the argument that it could piss terrorists of more and get them to attack more countries, but we have to stop them and get information so we can stop these attacks.

  • I will not rust the safety of my country and other lives

    If a terrorist has any important information that is crucially important for the government to use to save lives of innocent people, by all means use any type of method to obtain information. If they (the terrorist, enemy) had the opportunity to do it to one of us, or military member, guess what? They will not have mercy. Its one life for another. War is not pretty lets be realistic and stop trying to be so sensitive. Weather we agree or disagree the government will use this or worse tactics to obtain information they need.

  • Waterbording should be legal

    Waterbording should be legal because what if they kill an ilegal person they might get answers and kill someone that was very bad. It is ilegal but they need to bring it back. What if they kill the leader there will be no more. There are people that want to kill us so we kill them for our protection.

  • Water boarding should be banned world wide.

    Water boarding should be banned world wide and declared a war crime. Water boarding is no different that taking a person and dunking their head in a tub of water. When I person has thier face covered it dehumanizes them and makes it easier to inflict sever distress on them. I tried it on myself leaning slightly back and using a little bottle of water and it is terrifying- you can barely breath- there are other methods available which might take a little longer but just as effective.
    For instance keeping a person awake for a long time with poor nutrition will wear someone down quickly. America should NOT LOWER this counties values by using this method of torture.

  • They're humans as well.

    Even though they might of killed many people, doesn't mean that people should torture them. It's really inhumane and people wouldn't like it if someone did it to them. I think there are other humane ways to try to get information from people, because the person might be innocent or say who did it if they weren't tortured.

  • They are people and waterboarding is inhumane.

    And after all we are talk about SUSPECTED terrorists after all they could be innocent. Even though i still wouldn't condone it if they were. No one has the right to treat someone else like that

  • Waterboarding is inhumane and ineffective, and therefore, I oppose it.

    Waterboarding is inhumane. And it, along with all other forms of torture, are opposed by human rights groups, such as Amnesty International. In addition, waterboarding and other forms of torture are ineffective, as suspects will often lie just to get the torture to stop. Finally, the use of torture worsens our reputation in the international community.

  • Hey, why not bring back the rack and thumbscrews while you are at it.

    Simple truth drugs are a humane and easily applied alternative which is more effective.

  • The use of deadly force should never be implemented on a suspect, no matter what their suspected crimes.

    America has as a founding principle that people are innocent until proven guilty. The use of deadly force - even if the deadly force is "simulated" - on a suspect who has not been proven guilty of any crime, is a punishment which can not precede conviction. Even if the person is suspected to be a terrorist or is not an American, for the American government to engage in this betrays a vital principle of who we are.

  • It should not be legal to use waterboarding when interrogating suspected terrorists because they are suspected terrorists, not convicted terrorists.

    It should not be legal to waterboard a suspected terrorist. The United States takes pride in the fact that we are a free and fair country. Anyone at any time for whatever reason could become a suspect. It is not right, moral, or humane to give such treatment to someone that has not been found guilty of anything, just suspected.

  • I oppose waterboarding, as it is torture, and there are better ways to interrogate suspected terrorists.

    I do not believe that torture is an appropriate interrogation tactic. I believe in the humane treatment of all humans, and surely there are other tactics to encourage someone to reveal information that are less violent and brutal.

  • I oppose waterboarding and torture techniques to interrogate terrorists because it is unconstitutional.

    As much as I support the fight to end terrorism, we cannot ignore the laws currently in place as to the treatment of prisoners and prisoners of war. Suspects have rights. Now if the public wants to go about changing those rights, they have the right to do that, but until then, we cannot pick and choose who has rights and who does not, just because we do not like them.

  • It is inhumane to use this method because they are not criminals, but we prohibit them to do so.

    The use of waterboarding to interrogate suspected terrorists results in physiologic and psychological effects. There is a real risk of death from actually suffering a heart attack or damage to the lungs from inhalation of water. Long-term effects included are panic attacks and depression. We are supposed to interrogate them, not to punish them. We cannot act like terrorists

Yes when it concerns national security and its a serious matter-but not to be used indiscriminately.
