If TORTURE works, why is Osama Bin Laden still at large?????

That is the more basic question to ask, I would like to know from those that are supporting the fact about torture working and has kept this country safe.

Why is Pakistan on the verge of being run over by Al-Qeada and Taliban???

2. Because he's dead and they know that.
Probably been dead for a while but as long as he's not caught, we are still in "danger of being attacked". If they admit he's dead then we dont have target. He's got body doubles, hes a 7 foot dialysis patient in Afghanistan/Pakistan, great medical care they have he's dead, I would say he's been dead for a couple years.

5. Im saying they are using Bin Ladens not being caught to justify torture.

Not explicitly I know they use the word terrorist but same diff. If torture works it wouldnt only thwart terror attacks but it would yield Bin Laden and other terrorist leaders, if Bin Laden is dead then the focus (by the American people) will leave fighting terror they'll want us to be peaceful and stop killing. Whether or not hes dead or alive doesnt really matter as long as he's still out there for the defense contractors and the Military Industrial Complex to pursue. I dont think (excluding Obama) the government wants him caught then they have no poster child to convince the young white people in this country to hate trrrrsts. Its like the heroin game on South Park, the point of the game is to chase the purple dragon youre not supposed to catch it.

Hope that clears things up a bit I ramble sometimes when I type.

4. It doesn't matter if it works or doesn't work.
By US law, by US constitution, and by treaty obligation, torture of anyone for any reason is a crime, a serious crime. There are no exceptions.

7. Probably because his people torture too
They're afraid to blab on him because they know their families will pay the price.
