Is torture necessary to insure our freedom?

Yesterday as I was watching the reporters scurry around and tell us the Senate’s findings on our torture program I thought of the movie A Few Good Men. We value our freedom in this country but freedom comes at a cost, and often that cost is not pretty. Torture is not pretty as a matter of fact it is downright cruel, but we experienced cruelty on September 11, 2001. When three planes targeted our citizens and killed 3,000 people. We can not follow a rulebook when the enemy does not respect the book. Our government is committed to safeguarding our safety and our freedom, and to take them to task years later is wrong and smacks of politics. We want thm on the wall and we can’t push them off when we think we are safe.

    You couldn’t have used a better clip. I used this same clip today in my high school English class in an open discussion segment.
