A Man with a Flashlight

That article also says Giuliani “backs intense interrogation of suspects, though not torture.” And on Guantanamo, he says,

There is a Greek maxim: Moderation is the answer to everything, and any extreme is bad,” he said. “I haven’t been to Guantánamo. I can’t judge Guantánamo.”

I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that Giuliani wants to torture prisoners but he knows Americans won’t vote for him if he calls it that. So it would seem he has put together a focus group and they liked the word intense instead. What is an “intense” interrogation method anyway? Is it like what an FBI agent observed at Guantanamo in 2002?

In another incident that month, interrogators wrapped a bearded prisoner’s head in duct tape “because he would not stop quoting the Koran,” according to an FBI agent, the documents show.

Hey, man, remember that time you wrapped my head in duct tape because I quoted the Koran? Yeah, man, that was intense.

Giuliani is a tragedy-miner, and he dodges the issue of Guantanamo. Hey, leadership material !
