  • Army complains TV torture gives it a bad name

    Heard this on the radio yesterday.
    Podcast: http://www.sendspace.com/file/glrhwp

    I found it funny that the U.S. army can't control it's own people because the soldiers don't know fantasy from reality.
    General Patrick Finnegan should be talking to his soldiers NOT some TV show. If the soldier's rules of engagement come from TV shows it makes you wonder of the sanity of your average soldier. As the guy from the podcast said "I don't think NASA's shuttle pilots don't think " I wonder how Captain Kirk would deal with this".

    Kiefer Sutherland as Jack Bauer in the hit television series 24

    WASHINGTON - In the hugely popular television series 24, special agent Jack Bauer always gets his man, even if he has to play a little rough. Suffocating, electrocuting or drugging a suspect are all subordinate to national security.
    But while 24 draws millions of viewers, it appears some people are getting a little squeamish.
    In an unlikely twist, it has emerged the United States military has appealed to the producers of the hit series to tone down the torture scenes because of the impact they are having both on troops in the field and America's reputation abroad.
    Forget about Abu Ghraib, forget about Guantanamo Bay, that damned Jack Bauer is giving the US a bad name.
    The Military Academy at West Point yesterday confirmed that Brigadier General Patrick Finnegan recently travelled to California to meet producers of the show, in which actor Kiefer Sutherland plays Bauer.
    He told them that promoting illegal behaviour in the series - hugely popular among the US military - was having a damaging effect on young personnel.
    etc............

    the army has a serious issue with admitting it's own faults.
