The Antelope Valley Press values your opinion.


This week's question: 

 A new report finds the CIA’s interrogations of terrorism suspects from 2002 to 2008 led to false confessions, fabricated information and no useful intelligence about imminent attacks.

Would you still condone torture or enhanced interrogation techniques if it meant preventing another 9/11 attack or loss of American lives? 



 Yes. If it will save one life, we should take every possible action available to us. 
No. Torture is torture and it is against the very principles our democracy is founded on. 
Maybe. I would only condone it as a means of last resort, if it meant preventing a catastrophic event.
