IF the American public really supports torture, then it is because they do NOT want to know ANYTHING these days (because with knowledge comes responsibility) except what’s on TV.
And the mind-controlled people of other countries are no different.
You talk to a student studying economics these days (with an IQ way above 140).
They know NOTHING about the Fed, NOTHING about QE, NOTHING about derivatives, NOTHING about the financial crisis, NOTHING about what is happening in Europe.
I guess they wouldn’t find Cyprus on a map and they probably think that “PIIGS” are raised on (factory) farms.
In short they know NOTHING about what is relevant and they have no idea what is lying ahead of us.
So why would we expect the general American public to know anything or even want to know anything other than what they are bombarded with on a daily basis by MSM?
– American Public Supports Torture … Because They Don’t Know THIS (Washington’s Blog, Dec 17, 2014):
New polls show that – even after the Senate torture report showed that torture is unnecessary and doesn’t work – Americans still think torture is necessary and works.
Because they still don’t know the truth … because the mainstream media has hidden it from them. Specifically, Americans still believe that torture works to produce helpful intelligence that helps keep us safe.
Americans wouldn’t support torture if they knew the following facts, proven beyond any doubt:
- All of the top interrogation experts say that torture does NOT produce actionable intelligence … even in a “ticking time bomb” scenario
- Torture doesn’t reduce terrorism. In fact, the opposite is true: it simply creates new terrorists and terrorist groups, including ISIS
- While the mainstream media gives overwhelming coverage to pro-torture guests, those people have a very strong incentive to lie. Specifically, virtually all of them are war criminals under international and U.S. law who are afraid of being prosecuted for their creation and approval of the torture program. Indeed, many are calling for their prosecution, and a former top Air Force interrogator notes that government officials knew they are vulnerable for war crime prosecution:
They have, from the beginning, been trying to prevent an investigation into war crimes.
- The Nazis used the same “Enhanced Interrogation” techniques the U.S. did … and even CALLED IT the same thing
- The Founding Fathers were strongly opposed to torture … and enshrined a torture ban in the Constitution
- This is not the first time America tortured. AmericanstorturedFilipinos over a hundred years ago as a way to terrorize the population into submission. CIA torture in Vietnam was so severe that most prisoners died during torture; and the torture was so horrific that those who didn’t die during torture usually killed themselves soon after. Americans also taught the leaders of other countries how to torture
- The detainees held up as “poster boy” justifications for torture actually prove the opposite
(Note: Other polls reach very different conclusions about Americans’ acceptance of torture.)
