1. They need to add another Yes vote saying
"Yes, as long as it's not me or mine getting water-boarded"

Because that would be closer to the truth for those answering yes.

6. Witht that type of torture -
What are the interrogators looking for? The truth or what they want to hear from the tortured to pass on to the propaganda machines.

Hey, did anyone else notice their new rating system for a story? The stars go from bottom to top; a "high" rating is the lowest star, the top star indicates a very low rating. How Orwellian.
