torture to gain information during war times and covert operations has been going on since the beginning of time. no one likes torture...what about what was done to our servicemen during wwII and the viet nam war? My grandfather(age 95) could tell you stories that happened to him in a Japanese POW camp that would make water boarding seem like a day at the beach. Time we all admit that torture happens on both sides and it's not the US acting alone

Why wouldn't people want to listen to Ms. Rice? This has nothing to do about the whining that is going on about war crimes. Give me a break, it's called WAR... torture happens, whether you like it or not, always has, always will. War is not a video game you can just turn off if you don't like it. So rather than waving your propaganda sign and whining about the policies and procedures, do something about it! Enlist! Work your way to the top and change things to suit you! Otherwise, thank your lucky stars that we have soldiers that follow orders, and do the unthinkable to get the job done. By the way.. you're welcome!

Catch22--That's called circular reasoning. Prisoners were tortured and little or no usable information was obtained.

Ms. Rice of course should be allowed to speak.

When I watched the news last night and saw a couple of women proclaiming Ms Rice violated the prisoners civil rights by torturing them I just had to think a moment. I am sure it was not Ms. Rice` decision on torture. I am sure there were some military heads there spearing that up. I also believe that "if" these prisoner's were tortured, it had to be for a very good reason. Perhaps these two women should thank the military more often for their freedom of speech.
