"If the detainee dies, you're doing it wrong"

a quote for the ages...

from think progress...

Having "spent several months experimenting with the limits of physical and psychological pressure," military officers at Guantánamo Bay turned to the CIA in late 2002 "to find ways to get terrorism suspects to talk." CIA lawyer Jonathan M. Fredman "explained that the definition of illegal torture was ‘written vaguely’" and "subject to perception." "If the detainee dies, you're doing it wrong," Fredman said.

it was "written vaguely," and made "subject to perception" on friggin', goddam PURPOSE... make no mistake...
