Should there be a torture commission

http://washingtonbureau.typepad.com/washington/2009/03/two-more-votes-for-a-torture-commission.html

2 more high ranking officials are calling for a torture commission, former U.N. Ambassador Thomas Pickering and former FBI director Bill Sessions. In an op-ed piece in this morning's Washington Post, are urging the Obama administration to do this.

Should we do this? and what should the consequesnces be?

  • If it will satisfy the "masses" than I say go for it. Let the Accussations be defended.

  • Nope. There should be a special investigation so that charges can actually be brought against those who allowed/condoned torture.

    Agreed! If there was a commission would they not be allowed to be prosecuted?

    Torture makes us no better than the other barbaric nations who thinks it's okay to do.

    They can recommend a criminal investigation through the appointment of a prosecuter. But it is a slightly longer process to go this way.

  • No, If torture is ever utilized it should be known by no one. You can't trust the media and even if you could thats just something that shouldn't be publicized. The last thing we need is a group of people chatting it up trying to prove if it happened or how to make sure it doesn't .
