Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data, ability to repeat discredited memes, and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Also, be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor even implied. Any irrelevancies you can mention will also be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.
I withdraw any nasty comments I might ever have made about Americans and Irony.
Also see this post of his on why torture is not good for gathering information. We have come so far that people have to use an intelligence success based on the hard work of the old sort and use it to try to support the use of torture? There is only one reason for torture: to torture.
