Enhanced interrogation should be allowed as well as psychological interrogation. These terrorists perform extreme atrocities on anyone, including innocent civilians. Our enhanced interrogation is child's play compared to what they do. This question should really be answered by someone under the threat of terrorism, or who has family of friends in captivity or otherwise affected by a terrorist act. You can pretty much guess what the answer will be 99.9% of the time.

Yes, IF combatants of the USA use these techniques. NO, IF combatants of USA do not use these techniques.

We are the only country in the world that worries about being politically correct. If you go to any other country illegally and get caught, you will see horrible conditions, and not get any fair treatment. If you are believed to be a terrorist or spy in another country water boarding would be at the bottom of their lists. Other countries do much more horrible things like electrocution tactics, etc.. Yes torture is cruel, but how cruel is the planning of mass murder in the name of a religion. When you deal with animals that think a man, woman or child don't have the right to live because they don't believe in their ideology, well in my opinion the gloves need to come off.

No, they should interrogate them like how the police interrogate.

As long as it doesn't pose a threat to the American Constitution or people. But the Military is it's own branch, they can do what they want.

@9RXJV7PSocialist from Tennessee answered…1yr

No, and the use of “enhanced interrogation techniques” rather than “torture” in the question is wrong.

@9RWSLDVVeteran from Washington answered…1yr

Yes, because the government is probably already doing it and will most likely continually do it in the heat of the moment like most interrogations are; they are trying to protect American lives so I do not think the "interrogators" should be punished for what they deem as necessary interrogating for our safety

@9RNK6FKPeace and Freedom from Georgia answered…1yr

No, I dont believe torturing another human is called for but I think we should do our best to prevent terrorism.

@9RFMZKQVeteran from Colorado answered…1yr

Yes, but only if the acquired information can be verified in real time, because a person who is being interrogated will say anything to get it to stop.

@9QJDYKSDemocrat from Tennessee answered…2yrs

No, we should find other ways to get information instead of torture- even if they are not U.S citizens, we should still respect the 8th Amendment

@9QDXF4TVeteran from Indiana answered…2yrs

@9PXV7KWTranshumanist from New York answered…2yrs

Make the listen Babyshark children's song until they confess.

@9PTWTBJWorking Family from California answered…2yrs

Yes, but only if the safety of the country is at risk. Otherwise psychological tactics should be used.

@9PGTR59Transhumanist from Oklahoma answered…2yrs

Yes, but physical torture should be banned as ineffectual, a violation of the 8th Amendment and in contradiction with the Geneva Convention.

@9PBZ6QFRepublican from Mississippi answered…2yrs

@9MPS6HVRepublican from Kansas answered…2yrs

The general public should have no say in Military operations or affairs. That is the whole reason for the Joint Chiefs and the President.

@Raegan-WauthierWomen’s Equality from Connecticut answered…2yrs

no, it should be a fair trial the army will always have defense advantages or help, torture is inhuman to me and should be an all time LAST resort if anything at all.

@9MKMTBTWomen’s Equality from Wisconsin answered…2yrs

Yes, but only as a last resort and if they are proven convicted terrorists, and not U.S. citizens, because of the 8th amendment

@9MKKRXRPeace and Freedom from Michigan answered…2yrs

Only as a last stance and only psychological ones. Doing something like waterboarding only makes them hate us more than they already do for killing their countrymen fighting for their country just like us.

No, torture is ineffective, inhumane, and violates the 8th Amendment and the Geneva Convention.

it’s inhuman but also sometimes it needs to be used to get to the bottom of things
