It is WRONG. Do you belief for a minute that the precedent will
not be applied to US citizens suspected of aiding and abetting
terrorists? Especially when what that label can be applied to
is currently ultra-fuzzy? How about a bit of torture of mere
suspects while we are about it? Do you think it is open season
on "non-citizens" just because of 9-11? Would you like the same
treatment when you go abroad? Would you like this treatment on
mere suspicion without legal counsel? The day that the US
government uses such methods is the day it becomes my sworn

### There is IMO nothing wrong with narcoanalysis, and no reason why it
shouldn't be used to interrogate suspected terrorists, tax evaders,
politicians before and after elections, as well as candidates for hire on
the police force. I do not see any relationship of this subject to torture.

The government should start openly using and popularizing narcoanalysis for
public and private use.
