What's Your Opinion?

Compiled by Bill O'Neill

Question: Do you think the "tough interrogation" tactics President Bush says were used on Al Qaeda suspects constitute "torture" and should be banned? Why (or why not) ?


"It's a tough decision. Idon't think people should be tortured. But, they should be punished for killing innocent people. Whatever problems they have with Bush, they are taking out on us. If he is torturing, they are going too far."

I think President Bush is too easygoing. He should be even more strict. The government has to stop those people - for our safety and freedom."

Joey R., Canarsie"We don't know if they were tortured, or they weren't tortured. We were lied to from the beginning. They said there were no secret prisons - and we don't know what to believe. But Ido believe in tough interrogation. They are absolute criminals."
