Sir, you might want to share that field manual with Attorney Generalissimo and VP thatseem to thinks it's OK and it works, and are it's biggest advocates.
I was concerned by the results of a recently released survey conducted last
fall in Irasq that revealed an apparent unwillingness on the part of some US
personnel to report illegal actions taken by fellow members of their units.
study also indicated that a small percentage of those surveyed may have
mistreated noncombatants. This survey should spur reflection on our conduct
combat. …Some may argue that we would be more effective if we sanctioned
or other expedient methods to obtain information from the enemy.
They would be
wrong. Beyond the basic fact that such actions are illegal,
history shows that
they also are frequently neither useful nor necessary.
