I am going to be talking to you today about torture and how it could save people’s lives. So say your child’s school was taken hostage by a single terrorist who planted the bomb. Your working for the CIA and you have arrested him and holding him in the back of the car. He is bragging on about how you have to suffer as he did and it’s for Allah,
I am going to be changing your thoughts on why torture should be used as a source of interrogation in our government. So most of you ladies and gentlemen are looking at me like why would i make a speech about this evil, why would i commend this about torture being put towards the greater good of this country. So think about torture like a evil cowards way of getting information from our country’s enemies, But in this speech today i am going to change your View from torture being bad into what should be accepted thing. Young people sitting in the crowd If you look in the media like that episode from American Dad you will see that the CIA were doing a fundraiser to get torture equipment to get codes of a bomb off a terrorist who was saying how america deserves it. Fathers in the crowd think about it if your family was in danger of a bomb exploding and the terrorist is talking about how you should is talking about how you should suffer as his country does. Are you going to allow him to get away with the deaths of millions of people because you did not want to make the choice of interrogating him for the code or wire for disarm the bomb but are you going to be living with the guilt of your family and other of these mens family’s death on your hands.All because you thought that it was not the right thing to do was to interrogate another human being.
George bush was once in the same postion i am in of way torture should be legal this what the man said “My fellow Americans:Three years ago, in the spring of 2003, a man called Khalid Shaikh Mohammed fell into the hands of the Pakistan intelligence service, who handed him over to the CIA. We believed him then, and know him now, to have been a key deputy to Osama bin Laden, a very dangerous master terrorist in his own right. He was in fact the principal planner of 9/11.
Even more important, he was almost certainly privy to other evil plans for further terrorist attacks on the United States. He was interrogated according to the rules of the Geneva Conventions, but said nothing. At that point a dreadful dilemma arose. The only way to get the life-saving information from him was by breaking the rules, in fact to subject him to torture.Believe me when I say that I had rather been asked to give up my life in combat for my country than take that decision. The torture of prisoners is illegal under our laws which I have sworn to uphold, and those of all civilised countries.
So tonight when you go home look at your child and think of what you would do in the postion of that CIA agent. What would you have done? Would you allow the children to die or would you have done something even though it was not the right thing to do?
