Question Nine


Question Nine: You say that America’s treatment of terror suspects will cause terrorists to treat their captives, especially Americans, more cruelly. On what grounds do you assert this? Did America’s far more moral treatment of Japanese prisoners than Japan’s treatment of American prisoners in World War II have any impact on how the Japanese treated American and other prisoners of war? Do you think that evil people care how morally pure America is?

Answer Nine: Dude, this isn't about other people. This is about America. I don't want MY country torturing. But, if you want to talk about Japan, I hardly think dropping a bomb on them that killed hundreds of thousands of civilians makes us exactly morally pure.
