I never argued what other countries do. If I did, it would be pointing out that they actually hurt people when they torture them.
Then why did the CIA do it? We will never know what information they gained. It just seems silly to fight over torture, and act like we are better than that, as we mutilate and kill innocent people all the time. This countries form of torture is like a nice day at the park compared to what those in the war zones are going through.
