  • Feb 14 - US Military Criticizes '24' Torture Scenes



    The US military has criticized the producers of TV hit 24 for featuring too many scenes of Kiefer Sutherland's character Jack Bauer torturing suspects for information. Brigadier General Patrick Finnegan recently visited the set of the hit show in California to speak to the show's makers. Finnegan is concerned about the effect the torture scenes are having on US troops abroad as 24 is popular among members of the American armed forces.

    According to the New Yorker, Finnegan told the producers, "I'd like them to stop. They should do a show where torture backfires. The kids see it and say, 'If torture is wrong, what about 24?' The disturbing thing is that although torture may cause Jack Bauer some angst, it is always the patriotic thing to do." Human Rights First spokesman David Danzig says, "I think there is no question (that torture scenes are having an effect).

    We have spoken to soldiers with experience in Iraq who say, for young soldiers, there is a direct relationship between what they are doing in their jobs and what they see on TV. The image of the US and its military is being affirmed."

        Typical. A show who's makers are predominantly conservative is full of glorifying torture scenes.

        The creator of the show is a fan of Rush Limbaugh.
        Enough said.
        "Say what you will about the sweet miracle of unquestioning faith, I consider a capacity for it terrifying and absolutely vile."
        - Kurt Vonnegut

            I like the show too, but the torture scenes and other scenes give the wrong messages out.
            How can people be against Bush's adimnstartion using of torture against suspected
            terrorists, but at same time approve of Jack Bauer?

            You see the dilemma..

                      TO the ppl who don't even watch the show regularly, STFU. The show hasn't come close to some of the methods that the government has used.

                            You either a) have only seen a few shows or b) have only started watching this season, or c) don't even watch the show at all. If you want to criticize it for having a few muslim terrorists fine, but 1) there has been terrorists of multiple lines of culture and descent and honestly the only other time they involved Muslim terrorists, they set out to prove all muslims/arabs aren't like that, and they are doing it again so I don't know what the fuck else they can do to make you happy, 2) this season, while there it is a muslim at the helm of the attacks, characters within the show are fighting about rights, with the president's life now being in danger due to his defense of muslim americans. Also, the plotline in the show is that the Russians are really the worse ones, pushing their agenda into the ring, and simultaneously giving arabs a bad name.

                            Yeah they could've avoided ever mentioning Muslims in the first place but then again they could've done the same with the Russian, Serbian, and American terrorists they've had on the show in the first place, but then again you don't watch the show now do you?

                              yeah, the president of the US wanting the help of the Muslim community for stopping some terrorists who blew up half of L.A
