Romney Advisers: Bring Back Torture

September 28, 2012 by legitgov

Romney Advisers: Bring Back Torture [They already did. Have you seen the campaign?] 28 Sep 2012 Mitt Romney's advisers have privately urged him to "rescind and replace President Obama's executive order" and permit secret "enhanced interrogation techniques against high-value detainees that are safe, legal and effective in generating intelligence to save American lives," according to an internal Romney campaign memorandum. "We'll use enhanced interrogation techniques which go beyond those that are in the military handbook right now," he said at a news conference in Charleston, S.C., in December. The Romney campaign document, obtained by The New York Times, is a five-page policy paper titled "Interrogation Techniques." Last December, Mr. Romney was asked about waterboarding at a town-hall meeting in Charleston... At the news conference afterward, a reporter pressed him to say whether he thought waterboarding was torture, and Mr. Romney replied, "I don't." [CLG believes that Obusha's killer drone strikes also constitute torture, and torture still exists at US owned and operated prisons both around the world and on US soil.]
