One of the many controversial assertions made by the President-elect of the United States was related to waterboarding and other techniques dubbed as torture by many of its detractors. A favorite of totalitarian regimes, torture is the action or practice of inflicting severe pain on someone as a punishment or to force them to do or say something, or for the pleasure of the person inflicting the pain. One must admit that when it comes to military interrogations of enemy combatants, torture and interrogation seem to go hand-in-hand. However, during Second World War, America had a very different approach at a top secret camp.
Totalitarian regimes did have an infamous reputation regarding their interrogations “techniques” of their enemies and dissidents, just as they do today. America, on the other hand, has always been a beacon to the world, a shining city in the top of a hill. It had, just as it has now, a reputation to uphold. Torture wasn’t looked upon with good eyes, particularly on American soil, regardless of the country martial status. So what do you extract the information you need without treating enemies inhumanly? The answer will put a grin in your face. We guarantee you.
