Want to play Devil’s Advocate and have some guilty fun at the expense of your Israel First/Neo-Conservatives acquaintances?
Argue the case that JJPollard is a candidate for Enhanced Interrogation Techniques [that’s Dershowitz-speak for what is more commonly termed torture].
It’s a lot of fun! At the expense of awful persons with whom you are politically at sword’s-point already, so…
Thinking back, the premises for applying EIT to KSM and his jihadist compatriots were:
1. they had engaged in [violent] acts detrimental to the interests of the US ; and
2. they were witholding crucial information about future acts detrimental to the USA.
Well, I’m no lawyer, but common sense tells me that JJP meets both of those criteria: Espionage is not considered an act friendly to or in furtherance of US interests. As well, the supposed harsh treatment meted out to Pollard has been explained by his refusal to divulge the many and sundry details of his illegal activities on behalf of our great ally Israel. A refusal totally at variance to the terms of his pleaa bargain agreement.
So, in a nutshell, ther you have it.
Those taking my advice, please report back and let me know how it went.
