8. A lot of people echoed your sentiment with computer precision...

That's precisely the kind of emotional reponse that allowed our collective will to tolerate, if not condone, the forced rendition and torture of terrorists... many of whom turned out to be nothing more than farmers.

Abu Zubaydeh the number two man at Al-Qaeda. His case was used to justify the CIA’s “enhanced interrogation program.” He 'accidentally' lost his left eye while in custody. But it turned out Zubaydah wasn’t involved with Al Qaeda; he was the ringleader of nothing; he never took part in planning for the 9/11 attacks.

And a giant butt-load of people echoed your sentiment with computer precision: humans, though flawed, magincally possess the absolute and unerring ethical knowledge of who deserves what.
